You will need a payment gateway like Worldpay, one way or another. You
can't clear the card transactions otherwise.
Most of them have good apis for linking to from your system, usually
Perl, asp and java are well covered. I haven't used AOLserver for a few
years but I believe the embedded scripting language was tcl, I'm not so
sure you will get an api for that.
Also you may need to to two way ssl between you and the payment gateway.
Possibly the easist way is just to use something like clickpay, who will
host the payment page for you. It does mean that users are redirected
away from your site however, but only for the credit card entry stuff.
