# Pre-flight check
Before installing Craft Commerce, make sure you’ve got everything you need:
- A web host that meets Commerce’s minimum server requirements.
- Craft CMS 3.0 or later (see Craft’s installation instructions (opens new window) for details).
Craft Commerce can only be installed from the plugin store, or through Composer.
# Plugin Store
Log into your Control Panel and and click on “Plugin Store” then search for “Commerce”.
Ensure that you have Composer installed correctly (opens new window) in your Craft 3 project.
Run the following Composer command from within your Craft 3 project:
composer require craftcms/commerce:"^2.0"
Once installed via Composer don't forget to install the plugin in Craft itself via Settings → Plugins.
