Do you have a link to the specific requirements of the SAQ C and D testing. If not Nessus has a lot of PCI compliance checks. You will need to give the Nessus scanner root access to the box to be most effective. Nessus also has a number of builtin web application checks which will be useful. You can also use BurpSuite to scan the web site. Nessus has a free home edition which will let you test up to 10 devices. A full license will cost you $1500. BurpSuite is $299 unless you know someone that has a copy and is willing to scan the site for you. :)
