If you have to ask you shouldn’t be offering that service until you have experience building sites and using different platforms. The client is relying on you to understand what they don’t.

Yup.

Maybe you can partner up with a developer who knows their way around ecommerce, learn from them, and then be in a position to take on an ecommerce project on your own next time around?
