What is the product that's being sold?

Does it ship worldwide? How complicated is there shipping methods and 
rates? What about sales tax / VAT? Does it need to support special 
promotions and/or coupons?

Do they expect to manage products through a back-end application? What 
sort of features should that have? Any content management needed? 
Categories? News pages?

Yeah, e-commcerce is not so simple...
