I would highly recommend msdn as a start for ecommerce:

Introducing SharePoint Commerce Services

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd328362(v=cs.95).aspx

also look into what they already have for you setup and weather its the right thing for you using webparts:

Commerce Server Web Parts

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh597540(v=cs.95).aspx

as someone on msdn has noted:

SharePoint doesn't have eCommerce capabilities you will need to develop the Shopping Cart functionality in ASP.NET, use a 3rd party component or use Microsoft Commerce server

That being said you have thoes choices:

I completely agree to that, SharePoint may not be the proper selection for building such solution, you should go for ASP.NET Application instead!
