If you are not PCI Compliant and do not want to go through that process, you can choose to use Shoppable's Hosted Checkout which does not require you to be PCI Compliant since you will not be handling billing details. With the hosted checkout solution, Shoppable is PCI compliant and will handle all of the billing details on your behalf.
