Payment can be made on-line through the Secure Site/Payment procedures.
The 1911 census is the most recent to be published online, but you can find the seven previous censuses taken between 1841 and 1901 by visiting www.ancestry.co.uk. At this site you'll also need to buy credits or a membership to see certain documents, but in many cases you'll be able to find what you need free of charge: for some of these censuses you can find easy-to-read transcriptions of census pages without without buying credits.
