What does penetration testing involve

We have recently been told by a client that a small e-commere site we are building for them (1 single product on site) will be penetration tested by an external company. We have never had this situation before and whilst I am confident of our hosting supplier I dont know what they will test. Can anyone give me any advice on what we should do to the site before the test to ensure we pass it!!!! Thanks.

They will try to execute the most common and known hacks, and exploits on your servers. SQL-Javascript Injection on you sites (on your forms), shared folders access, users and passwords, port numbers, Wi-FI access, etc.
