The following are not in any specific order but I am sure you agree that the first item is the #1 source of concern:
- Gateway integration
- Customized email receipts
More advanced ideas:
- Event registration & eTickets
- Event registration & name badges
- Taxes, shipping, discounts, inventory and tax deductible portions
- Checkout pages with product options
- Multilingual forms and receipts
- Supporting multiple currencies
- Virtual terminal
Integration with 3rd party API's
- Subscription to enewsletter providers such as Constant Contact & MailChimp
- Posting to Twitter remotely
- Posting payee's information to Salesforce
