Trouble with BPMN Sub Process 

I'm in the beginning stages of learning BPMN, so any advice regarding the following would be very helpful!

We have an online payment process where the user clicks a link to begin the payment process.  After the link is clicked, I get their payment options (minimum amount due and payoff amount, specifically) and deliver them to the user.  This essentially ends one process that is part of the entire payment process.  Following is how I modeled this.

 

The above model illustrates how the user can get their payment options.  When a payment amount is selected it, along with basic account information, is sent to a third party payment company; thus another process has begun.  Following is how I've begun modeling this, and I'm not comfortable at all with how it's turned out.

I'm having a difficult time trying to get the "Get Payment Options" submodel to fit into the entire scheme of things.  When that first process ends, I can't figure out how to connect it to the rest of the payment process.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated...

Re: Trouble with BPMN Sub Process 

Well, above is what I've come up with so far.  I'd greatly appreciate anyone's input letting me know if it makes any sense, what I can do to improve it, or if any violations were committed.  The event messages, by the way, are intended to represent the capture data of HTML form posts.  There is a lot of that going on, unfortunately, due to all of the parties involved in this rather complex process.

Thanks,

vinny

Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements. On one side, we have got long specifications, complicated diagrams, mystical technical design, too many prototypes and pretty obvious for engineers user guides (do we really need so much?). On the other side, can we actual...

So you’ve found the perfect time and place to study and you’re ready to finally get some work done. You’ve pulled out your laptop, your textbook, and your notes, and four different highlighters. After five minutes of reading your textbook, you start zoning out and thinking about puppies. Then, you go on Tumblr and look at cut...
