I think (without looking) Kevin's advice was to help you determine whether a credit card number was of the valid format. Charging a credit card is not too different online than it is at a physical cash register - you need a merchant account, etc. Many banks provide some sort of API for you to use if you establish a merchant account with them, especially since online transactions have become more important. Things like PayPal charge you a bit of money in exchange for them being the merchant (as I understand it anyway). So, there is no magic PHP code that is going to set this up for you. You need to fill out some paperwork somewhere.
