Hi Nadeem

First question: which country are you/client in?

There are a number of third party merchant services providers, but  
generally, the less obvious the transition to the user, the more cost  
and security hassle you're going to have to go through. And believe  
me, the degree of security hassle can be enormous, and is only going  
to increase as the amount of online fraud increases.

Most shopping carts have integration modules for the major providers,  
to greater or lesser degrees of intrusiveness.
