1. config.xml
The payment method model, code etc are defined in the this file. This is first important step.

2. system.xml
This is required to create the system configuration part of payment method

1. Form Block getFormBlockType()
This return a block type, which is used to render a form shown in the checkout page. e.g credit card forms etc

2. Info Block getInfoBlockType()
