You would just need a VISA merchant account.

I will give you some options. 1. The easiest one is paypal. It is the most popular payment method and it can received a credit card payment. 2. Check 2CO. Their website is 2checkout.com 3. The hardest one. Go to your bank, ask them about merchant account. Ask them if you can use that account for online transaction. They also call it a non physical transaction. I don't know if they allow a non physical transaction. If they don't, then you are out of option. You should be able to use one of the options listed above, if not, go to your local website that receive a credit card payment, ask them how to do it. Good luck.

I think if you have an account with paypal, you may accept visa. Check their website.
