I would be tempted to add a field to the transactions table (say cc_details)
to store the encrypted block and then just pull it out of the table when

If you edit the etc/log_transaction file you can add the field in there for
when it writes the order. Something like:

cc_details: [value name=mv_credit_card_info filter=mac]

in amongst the [import table=transactions type=LINE continue=NOTES] tag.
