pci question

Due to avoiding being scoped in PCI-compliance, we are now searching
for PSP (Payment Service Providers)
Our processing volume is quite low (maybe 20 o 30 orders a month)
We already selected a couple of PSP  and one of their requirements is
we must establish a VPN connection with them in order they send
payment status of orders (not credit card numbers at all)
Even when we only would get payment status of orders,is there any
reason we should establish a VPN connection with them?
I mean , if we only get status of paid or not-paid for payment
processing done on their infrastructure, why is that vpn requirement?
Also, What is extent we are scoped regarding PCI if we are outsourcing
all of our payment processing?

thank you
