Certification is automatic, you don't have to pay or click submit or anything. It usually comes when you pass your last step exam. When entering your oasis account under score reports you'll see a message stating that your documents are under review. After (for me it took 3 days) veryfing dates and paperwork (all done by ecfmg without you having to send anything) you get an e mail saying that you ll be issued an ecfmg certificate via mail (FedEx) to your address. After some time (weeks) it ll appear on your oasis account as well under credentials I think.
Not sure if anything has to be done beyond that.
