You would need:

    - a merchant account with your bank;

    - a secure web server with an SSL certificate signed by a major
      trusted root;

    - access to and knowledge of some server side scripting language
      (such as PHP, JSP or CGI/Perl)

and you would probably also want:

    - access to an SQL database and knowledge of SQL

You would find things much easier if you used a service such as paypal to
take care of the transactions.
