A bit of 'non-Java' input - personally i would never order anything from a site that required me to join PayPal unless i could not order through an other vendor.

Anything other than generic credit card processing looks unprofessional

I *think* that: www.protx.com has some sort of credit card transaction system available for others. But I believe that their servers are currently down... lol (that's not good).  -_-

You *may* find something useful about credit cards at: www.howstuffworks.com

Yes, you might consider a 3rd party to handle the credit card processing. This can be done, e.g. as a web service

I only know they exist. The client would have to build the service cost into their TCO. AFAIK from the point of view of security compliance, it's difficult in any case to do this *without* third party involvement to some extent or other

Going with PayPal will save you money for sure.
I've worked with WorldPay and I think they were quite expensive at the time.
