Shared hosting by itself is not PCI compliant.
You can't store credit / debit card info on a shared server even with an 
SSL certificate.
You can however use a payment gateway such as Eway to collect the info 
required and handle payments or Paypal is the other option or any number 
of other solutions.
Unless the organisation is ISO 27001 certified they shouldn't even think 
of storing payment info that isn't counting the money you need to spend 
on the PCI DSS side of things.
I'd just ban anyone from storing card info on the server as its way too 
much of a security risk think what happened to Cyanweb.com.au when they 
were brute forced and the hackers destroyed the lot including the 
billing system.
