General Configuration

In addition to the settings available in Commerce → Settings, the config items below can be placed into a commerce.php file in your craft/config/ folder:

autoSetNewCartAddresses

Determines whether the customer’s last used shipping and billing addresses should automatically be set on new carts.

Can be set to true or false (default is true).

cartCookieDuration

A php Date Interval Default: 3 months. (P3M).

How long the cookie storing the cart should last. The cart exists independently of the Craft user’s session.

gatewayPostRedirectTemplate

Allows for the overriding of the template used to perform POST redirects to the payment gateway.

The template path that this item points to must contain a form that submits itself to the actionUrl variable, and outputs all hidden inputs with the inputs variable. Below is an example template:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<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|raw }}" method="post">
    <p>Redirecting to payment page...</p>
    <p>
        {{ inputs|raw }}
        <input type="submit" value="Continue" />
    </p>
</form>
</body>
</html>

Since this template is simply used for redirecting, it only appears for a few seconds, so we suggest making it load fast with minimal images and inlined styles to reduce http requests.

paymentMethodSettings

Allows for the overriding of payment method settings. You still need to configure the payment method in the Control Panel so you can reference the ID as the key to the payment method’s settings. Example:

<?php
return [

    // he * must be present to enable multi-environment configs, even if empty
    '*' => array(
    ),

    // DEV Details - i.e. your PayPal sandbox details for example
    'dev.whatever.net' => array(

        'paymentMethodSettings' => [
            //eWay Sandbox
            '1' => [
                'testMode' => true,
                'apiKey' => 'whatever',
                'password' => 'whatever',
                'CSEKey' => 'whatever',

            ],
            // 4 - PayPal Express
            '4' => [
                'testMode' => true,
                'password' => 'whatever',
                'username' => 'whatever',
                'signature' => 'whatever'
            ],
        ],
    ),

    // PRODUCTION Details - live payment stuff here
    'whatever.com' => array(
        'paymentMethodSettings' => [
            //eWay LIVE
            '1' => [
                'testMode' => false,
                'apiKey' => 'whatever',
                'password' => 'whatever',
                'CSEKey' => 'whatever',
            ],
            // 4 - PayPal Express
            '4' => [
                'testMode' => false,
                'password' => 'whatever',
                'username' => 'whatever',
                'signature' => 'whatever'
            ],
        ],
    ),
];
