Okay, very good.

Payments will be processed by one of the following:
ANZ Payment gateway (Amex, Visa, MC, Diners)
Electronic Funds Transfer
As for having to call with card details, that's simply not on. All online businesses should be using payment gateways.
How reassuring, Andrew.
Besides, somebody from Underbelly might evesdrop on the credit card details if given over the phone.
My imagination, I mean...
Although most online shops ask for billing address, it seems that in Australia, that data isn't actually checked (yet).
From my experience of implementing RBS's payment gateway internationally, individual shops can choose whether or not to perform the address check and if so, whether to process a transaction that doesn't match (with a risk flag), or whether to reject all transactions that don't match. I think it's similar with Paypal, not sure about ANZ.
The reason that the check isn't mandatory is to cover the scenario such as when a corporate card could be registered to a company's head office, but orders need to be sent to satellite offices or personal addresses. It also allows for banks that have less advanced IT systems, who haven't implemented technology to perform the check or report back the result to the payment gateway.
There's a separate risk check against shopper IP address to see that the order comes from the same country as the card issuer, which carries more weight during risk assessment. (e.g. an order coming from Nigeria with an Aussie credit card).
Back on topic - Andrew, I'd be a willing customer once you're up and running. No special orders, but plenty of the standard bits and pieces
