Good morning Peter from rural Australia,
I agree with John and Jef. Never lose a customer because of a lack of payment options. I learned this very early on in my business.
I now accept payment from Visa. Mastercard. Amex. Diners. PayPal. Direct Deposit. Cheque. And if someone asks me for a payment type that I don't have, I'd be looking into it the very next minute.
You're in business to satisfy your clients/customers. Not your accounting procedures. You have to bend to satisfy them. Not them bend to satisfy you.
As a customer I've walked away from many an online business because they won't accept PayPal.
You prosper by accommodating your customers/clients. At the end of the day, they pay all your bills. So always find a way to make them happy.

I'm fairly sure it is available in your location but you may want to look at Stripe,
https://stripe.com/au - sign up is quick and their interface is pretty great.
Don't lose a big (or any) client to lack of payment options.
