Here i am showing you sample example using ajax request with json responsce

Template file: /app/design/frontend/rwd/default/template/pay/index.phtml

<div id="results" style="width:100px; height: 200px;border:1px solid red;">

<button type="button" id="id1" class="myButton">Click Me 1!</button>
<button type="button" id="id2" class="myButton">Click Me 2!</button>

    jQuery(document).ready(function() {
          jQuery(".myButton").click(function() {
            var id = this.id;
            type: "POST",
            data: 'pid=' + id,
            dataType: 'JSON',
            url: "<?php echo Mage::getBaseUrl().'pay/index/sampledata' ?>",
                if (response){




IndexController.php /app/code/local/Excellence/Pay/controllers/IndexController.php

 public function sampledataAction() 
     $post = $this->getRequest()->getPost();


Note: Please try this code in default magento and custom module. thanks


Using the phtml file you can call the controller via ajax you just need the controllers url and then can use ajax to get the data.

  url: "/route/index/controller",
  success: function(response) {
                var result = jQuery.parseJSON(response);
  error: function(xhr) {
//do stuff with response
