POST Form page not found

I am hoping someone can help me. I have Slim installed and working. The problem is I have an HTML form that submits to a routed URL and it says "404 page not found" but if I manually go to this page without submitting the form it works fine. If I use GET it also works fine when submitting the form.

My Form on /store routing

<form action='../checkout/demo' method='POST'>
<input name='fullname' id='fullname' type='text' placeholder='Fullname'> <input name='email' placeholder='Email Address' type='text'> <input name='address1' placeholder='Address' type='text'>
<input name='city' placeholder='City' type='text'> <input name='state' placeholder='State' type='text'> <input name='zip' placeholder='Zip/Postal Code' type='text'>
<button type='submit'>Pay for my Items Now!</button> </form>

My Router

require "Slim/Slim.php";
$router = new \Slim\Slim(); 
$router->get("/store/:storeUrl", function ($storeUrl) {
    //This just adds the form to this url
    $controller = new Controller();
$router->get("/checkout/:storeUrl", function ($storeUrl) use ($router) {
    echo "string";

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    you need a post route, because your form has method='POST'

    $router->post('/checkout/:storeUrl' , function ($storeUrl) ...
