Config Settings

In addition to the settings in CommerceSettings, the config items below can be saved in a config/commerce.php file using the same format as Craft’s general config settings in config/general.php.

For example, if you wanted to change the inactive carts duration in dev environments but not on staging or production, you could do this:









 














return [
    // Global settings
    '*' => [
        // ...
    ],

    // Dev environment settings
    'dev' => [
        'purgeInactiveCartsDuration' => 'P1D',
        // ...
    ],

    // Staging environment settings
    'staging' => [
        // ...
    ],

    // Production environment settings
    'production' => [
        // ...
    ],
];

You can access the Commerce general settings model (opens new window) in your templates:

{% set settings = craft.commerce.settings %}

<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>Redirecting...</title>
</head>
<body onload="document.forms[0].submit();">
<form action="{{ actionUrl }}" method="post">
  <p>Redirecting to payment page...</p>
  <p>
    {{ inputs|raw }}
    <button type="submit">Continue</button>
  </p>
</form>
</body>
