This is not correct. The browser renders a special "checkout UI" to the
user (during the process of selecting a payment app - not where the browser
is acting as the payment app) that displays the list items provided by the
website and also some data capture fields (if the website requested them).

When the user enters data into those fields events are fired that the
website can listen for that give the website the data that was captured.
