another option is taking the card details on a secure connection and
processing them off-line.

One of my clients who had not wanted a payment gateway integration due
to budget constraints had chosen that option.

Of course a payment gateway integration if possible is better. A
direct integration is generally done by using the credit-card
processing interface that a bank provides. Needless to say, it
includes a lot expertise, experience and care.

Since you are playing with money you have to take care of both
application-wide and network-wide security issues into consideration
as well.
(application-wide: programmatic security leaks, network-wide: dmz,
firewall, viruswall, filters and all that stuff)
