Can Magento handle this?

Hi!

We have a web site that needs e-commerce capabilities, and so far Magento looks like the perfect fit. The thing we don’t really want is storefront software. We want to take advantage of the cart itself, the checkout, order histories, shipping and payment gateways, etc., and have all this peacefully co-exist with the rest of our site.

In a nut shell, we’d like to have links from our existing pages that add products to a cart. Ideally, we could plug the shopping cart right into one of our existing pages. Same for the checkout process, customer account management, and other things like that. Some of this might even be handled using AJAX to help it fit with our UI.

Is Magento flexible enough to handle a scenario like this, or is it really intended to be the entire store portion of the web site?

Thanks, it looks like an awesome system!
