Commerce Kickstart v2 - large

Commerce Kickstart is the quickest way to get up and running with Drupal Commerce. It's a great resource for anyone looking to get straight to development or customize a pre-configured template to launch their own online store.

Commerce Kickstart comes in three different flavors:

  • Commerce Kickstart 1.x for Drupal 7:

    Includes the latest versions of Drupal, Commerce 1.x, and the modules it needs to run. Features an optional set of minimal configuration items and development modules you can use to quickly test new patches.

  • Commerce Kickstart 2.x for Drupal 7:

    Includes everything from Kickstart 1.x with a larger set of options to create a fully-featured demo store complete with an attractive theme, catalog and search configuration, promotions engine, and a custom back office interface. Try the demo!

  • for Drupal 8:

    Instead of waiting to port the complete distribution to Drupal 8, we opted for a browser based tool you can use to build a Composer file to build your next Drupal Commerce 2.x project. Developed in partnership with Acro Media, it includes a variety of Technology Partners and contributed modules you can use to build and populate your store. Give it a try!

Commerce Kickstart was created by Commerce Guys. Read more about the history of its development in our Drupal 8 plans blog post.

Getting started with Commerce Kickstart 2.x

Commerce Kickstart 2.x focused on improving the out-of-the-box experience for new Drupal Commerce users. It serves as a great demo, though we don't necessarily recommend using the demo store as a starting point for new sites. If you opt for that approach, please be aware that you'll need to edit default content and configuration provided by the demo store.

Every module included in Commerce Kickstart 2.x exists on as a standalone project. Developers most commonly use it as a learning tool and then download, install, and configure the source modules themselves into their built-from-scratch Drupal Commerce sites.

Please review the installation and upgrading guide before creating a new Commerce Kickstart 2.x site or updating an existing one. Our official support forum is Drupal Answers; please use the drupal-commerce tag to notify everyone watching the tag to help support Commerce users.

Develop with Commerce Kickstart 2.x on

If you don't have a host to test with in a web accessible environment, provides a quick, optimized path for deploying Commerce Kickstart 2.x based websites. It does require learning a Git / drush driven workflow, but all projects get free SSL support, multiple development environments, and optimized web server configuration with development costs starting as low as $10 / month.
