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.
