That's all easy enough to do.  I personally don't like multi-page
checkouts but if it's a local law then there's no choice in the matter.

Even with multi-page checkouts, you still don't have to let the user
proceed to the next step until the current page has passed its
defined profile checks.  The current page should be re-presented,
with any errors clearly visible and explained, until the page has
been submitted with acceptable information.  You should only present
the next step (page) when the current step has been completed

Your page 3 would be the standard Interchange receipt, but you
shouldn't be attempting to send users there until page 2 has been
submitted correctly and the transaction is complete.

In the text quoted above (page 2 description), you said "missing CC
info or errors from payment GW should return you to this page."
That is correct, and is why I'm confused about the implementation you
seemed to be describing in your earlier articles.
