There are some legal requirements, some contractual requirements and some customer reputation factors to comply with.
Look up for starters.
What accounting/ecommerce system are you using? What card processor does it work with? They know how to be PCI DSS compliant.
Where are you storing credit card info today? Is the data encrytped?

If customers are concerned about how well you secure their information, or you suffer a data breach/hack and they incur unauthorized charges, it may harm your business.

If you need more info, I can introduce you to a professional colleague who is well experiences in this area.
