Help me take payments from future customers by phone!

I need suggestions on ways to be able to generate an invoice and then take payment details from a customer by phone. If the customer is uncomfortable with this I would like to offer the invoice with an online payment page for them to fill in themselves.

I will be having a website where people will send me their item to my address. I will then determine whether their item needs repairing, what it needs doing and then deciding on the price. I will then call up the customer and let them know the options available to them and if everything is ok, take payment.
I need the following!
1. To be able to take payment details from a customer by phone and enter them into a system (hopefully a website of some kind) to recieve payment from them.
2. If the customer doesnt want to give details over the phone I would like them to be able to make a payment themselves using a link to a payment page.
For both I would like to be able to input an invoice, which they would then recieve by email later.
I want to avoid paypal if possible (i think!) since I always found sites that used their login system to be confusing. I want to avoid using any kind of login system for my site. (this thing will be basic but perfect for what I want it for)
Does anyone know of any sites that can do these things for me in the cheapest way possible?
