Is your network PCI certified? If you are going to be processing 
payments there are requirements that will need to be met that go far 
beyond just having an SSL certificate. Those requirements get even more 
stringent if you plan on storing cardholder information. You can find a 
copy of the standards at https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/ .

As for your question, you can just run the entire domain under https if 
you like. I am assuming you will be using Apache and on any reasonable 
hardware it will handle it without even raising a sweat assuming you 
aren't talking about outrageous volume levels.
