how to post data of a form to an iframe in lightning component?

I have a requirement in Lightning community, from a lightning
component the user has a button to make payment -
- when clicked on that button, a lightning dialog will be displayed, initially this dialog box is hidden, after clicking "make payment " button, i am enabling dialog to show
-then user selects card type - like master, visa etc and click to proceed button
-this button and cardtype selection are included inside a <form> that has other information required to pass for payment gateway url.
-after proceed button is clicked, in the pop - user has to enter required info like card no, cvv, exp etc.-that shows a button to complete payment.
My problem is after clicking on the proceed button, the <form> is not being posted to the iframe i am using to redirect the user for processing payment. 
Can somebody solve or suggest a better way to handle this ? 

Below is my code written
<div class="slds">
        <div aria-hidden="true" role="dialog" class="slds-modal slds-modal--prompt slds-fade-in-hide" aura:id="modaldialog">
            <div class="slds-modal__container">
                <div class="slds-modal__header slds-theme--info">
                    <button class="slds-button slds-button--icon-inverse slds-notify__close" 
                            onclick="{!c.hidePopup}" title="Close Pop-Up">
                        <span class="slds-assistive-text">
                    <h2 class="slds-text-heading--medium">Make Payment</h2>
                <div class="slds-modal__content slds-p-around--small">

Hi Venkatesh,

Please find the solution suggested solution from stack exchange community for same issue.

The browser's same-origin policy prevents a page from accessing content or code in another page loaded from a different origin (protocol + port + host).

You can use postMessage() to communicate between your Lightning Component and the content of the iframe. See this blog post( for details.

In Spring17, you can also use the Lightning Container Component(, but be aware that it is in Developer Preview.

Please mark this as solved so that it gets removed from the unanswered queue which results in helping others who are encountering similar issue.

Best Regards,
