Quick & Easy Alternative to Paypal Buttons/Check-Out

I have a business that is basically strictly B&M. When we take CC, it's over the phone. Yes, extremely antiquated, but it is what it is.

I have a customer that is placing a big order for an item they're going to hand out to their employees. It's an item that other employees often want a back-up of. I tried to have it setup where they would collect the money and place an order for the employees, but they wouldn't do it.

I slapped together a simple add-on to our basic website using some code we use on other pages + the Paypal button generator. In the end, the website functions how I want, more or less.

Problem is Paypal as expected. Today the ordering opens, I get 14 orders and Paypal notifies me they're freezing the money over $1000. Paypal say they'll release the funds after shipment, but the items won't be shipped. They'll be picked up locally by my company contact. This order will likely be between $5,000-10,000 when all said and done. It's making me uncomfortable having Paypal controlling if/when I'll get paid. I need to nip this in the bud ASAP and I'd like to switch to something else I can slap together over the weekend.

Is there anything I can slap together over the weekend that would get the job done for me? I'm thinking something like Square?
