Xp is a good and stable OS.
The end of MS support will not make it useless.
Consider third party antivirus / antimalware softwares to continue to protect your security when MS ends support.

PCI will not be affected:

Plan?  Absolutely. Start last week so that you can put together a full plan and get approval with budget.

Credit cards will be around long after XP. So you REALLY do need to plan. Plan for replacement credit card processing as well as new systems.
