Example Templates

Commerce provides example templates (opens new window) for you to reference when building out your commerce solution.

You’ll find these in the vendor/craftcms/commerce/example-templates/ folder, and you may want to copy them to your project’s top level templates/ folder:

cp -r vendor/craftcms/commerce/example-templates/* ./templates

If your system supports it, you could also symlink these folders into your project’s templates/ folder so you always have up-to-date examples while in development:

ln -s vendor/craftcms/commerce/example-templates/shop ./templates/shop
ln -s vendor/craftcms/commerce/example-templates/buy ./templates/buy

The two main sets of templates are in the shop and buy folders.

# Shop

The shop folder contains a robust set of templates that do pretty much everything with Commerce. This includes a full checkout flow, address handling, order management, subscription management, and cart management.

Copy or symlink the shop folder to your templates and navigate your browser to yoursite.test/shop to see them in action.

# Buy

The buy folder contains a simple set of templates that work well for Commerce Lite, where you would only have a “buy now” button and a simple checkout.

Copy or symlink the buy folder to your templates and navigate your browser to yoursite.test/buy to see it in action.
