How difficult do you want to make this?
Most modern mail clients and all browsers already have the infrastructure
built-in for S/MIME, TLS/SSL, and X.509 certificate handling.
Instead of gpg2, I think you're looking for gpgsm (which is included in the
GnuPG 2 package), even then you probably only need it on the server.
For an e-commerce site, you should only have to implement S/MIME mail
signing/encryption. The web part should be fairly cookbook.
You probably want GnuPG-Devel for gpgsm questions, not PGP-Basics
