PCI compliant offline payment processing

I have a customer who insists on processing payments via the local POS system, and refuses to get an online merchant account to be able to process payments online. What services are available, that are pci compliant, to store customer payment details and to access it securely ?

The only way you can accept credit card numbers and store them on your server to process manually would be almost never.  Or maybe if you had the same PCI certification as a payment gateway could you at least store numbers on your own server.  But I bet it would break the compliance by manually looking at the numbers and keying them in.  I think the costs associated with that type of certification would be in the near 6 figures.

You can usepaypal? and get an email that the payment was processed.

Otherwise, all you can do is make the form they want (or refuse to) and let them know they should check with their lawyer before doing this as there could be 5 figure fines per occurrence - but they should check with their lawyer - just be their developer.

You need to either walk away or insist on the requirement be detailed in writing, and also make your objections known in writing so you don't end up tainted by such stupidity.

We might want to have a little more information about the client and the existing payment process.  Without all the details, I can't really recommend SquareUp or something like that.  So I am inclined to agree with COBOLdinosaur and padas.  Sometimes it's wisest to fire an unreasonable client and look for other work elsewhere.
