Have you looked at Perlshop? http://www.perlshop.org

Perlshop supports a wide variety of cc cards, and you can
easily make a custom cc verification sub for your special
It can be integrated with a database.
It's free, you are free to modify it, it works, it's all perl,
and it's still simple enough to understand.
The guy who took over the sourcecode at waveridersystems,
has an inexpensive addon called Office, which allows you
to view order histories and print out shipping labels.
Enough sites have been using it, without problems, that it
appears to be pretty solid.
