A lot can go wrong altogether if you have little experience with ecommerce.
Even if you use an off the shelf shopping cart.  If this client is expecting
high volumes in the future, you may want to do your research wisely
regarding security.  In fact, you may want to consider subcontracting that
portion of the project out, and try to learn as much about the process from
the subcontractor so that you can accomplish it by yourself on the next run.
