# Pre-Flight check

Before installing Craft Commerce, make sure your web server meets Commerce’s minimum requirements.

# Plugin Store

Log into the control panel, navigate to Plugin Store and search for “Commerce.” Choose Craft Commerce, then click Try, or copy the install command.

# Composer

To install via the CLI, run the following commands in an existing Craft 4 project:

composer require -w craftcms/commerce
php craft plugin/install commerce

If you are using DDEV, these shortcuts ensure the commands are run inside the appropriate container:

ddev composer require -w craftcms/commerce
ddev craft plugin/install commerce
