New client - Crib sheet

I'm meeting with a client on Monday (today being Saturday) regarding adding an eCommerce section to a site I'm developing for them.

Having only done one eCart site before (about 3 years ago) I'm a little apprehensive. Has anyone got a "crib sheet" of standard questions that I should ask and are you willing to share it? Or is there something already out there that I can find (I have looked, honest!)

Some sites that looked like some good info could be mined from (for others - search checklists for website planning resulted in most relevant sites)

Thanks JLK I'll have a look at them. I do have my own checklist for asking clients what they want re the actual website, it was just the eCommerce side of things. But I'm sure that there is good info re that on these sites. I'll have a good read.

Thanks for taking the time.

Thanks for your good wishes neilo.

In case their's any misunderstanding here I already have the contract. I've been buiding the other content of the site but this time we are going to specifically discuss the ecommerce side of things. I'm just wondering what sort of questions I should ask like:

Payment gateway - I think it's going to be PayPal WPS
Will there be digital downloads
Shipping costs
Choice of colours , sizes...

That sort of thing.

Yes - sorry John,

I did know that, - it was a feeble attempt at humour (not actual advice).

Now I feel silly.

Oh don't worry neilo, your humour has kept me going in this forum for a long time but I must admit, on this occasion, it escaped me :)

At least you replied.. I am not alone...
