Implementing E-Commerce on an existing site

I need to integrate a commerce section into an existing Silverstripe site. Since this is my first time using the SS commerce module and I can't find a lot of documentation on it , I'd like to find out how to proceed.

We would like to add simple shopping functionalities to the following site : ... Right now , we have several types of product-pages (shoes / purses / clothing etc.) which have different fields / properties (sizes / colours / etc.) .....

What confuses me :

Would it be right for me to change the current page-type-classes so they extend from (the e-commerce module's) product class in order to get the commerce module to work with them or do I have to "start over" and add all specific fields and properties to the base "product" class ?
