In my experience, the best way is not to store it. No responsibilty on your shoulder. I see no reason why I would have to. I use PayPal on my site for online payments and I don't even see the cc info ever, but still get paid.

First of all, my customers don't have to have a PayPal account in order to pay me. They can use their credit card just fine. Figures on my site around $5000/month.
Check out their demo at [url=http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_merchant-outside#]http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_merchant-outside#[/url]
Don't worry it's not an affiliate link or anything.

Hope this helps.

There are two ways to handle credit card transaction from what I've read over the few years.

you can either use paypal, have it redirected there, and be charged like 1% for that service

or you can get a HTTPS license for your site
then you can send credit card info through your site worry free because it's already encrypted, but that costs you quite a bit.

check out sites like VeriSign to research that.
If you do it with paypal, you're drawback is that you have to use they're layout for a .... shopping cart - per say.
