Commerce Widgets for Craft CMS 3.x
Commerce Widgets is a Craft CMS plugin that gives you insightful dashboard widgets for your Craft Commerce 2 store.
They help you see a better overview of your stores performance, by viewing abandoned cart statistics, setting yearly or monthly goals/targets and seeing who which customers are buying off you the most.
All these help you to optimise your store and in turn (hopefully) increase your revenue and orders.
- Install with Composer via
composer require bymayo/commerce-widgetsfrom your project directory
- Install the plugin in the Craft Control Panel under
Settings > Plugins
You can also install the plugin via the Plugin Store in the Craft Admin CP by searching for
- Craft CMS 3.2.x
- Craft Commerce 2.x
- MySQL (PostgreSQL support is limited)
The plugin comes with a
config.php file that defines some default settings that apply to mostly all widgets.
If you want to set your own config options, create a
commerce-widgets.php file in your Craft config directory. The contents of this file will get merged with the plugin defaults, so you only need to specify values for the settings you want to override.
cacheDuration allows you to set how long the widget data is cached in seconds. This is great for stores with large amounts of orders/customers, to only cache stats every X amount of hours rather than everytime the dashboard loads. Default:
3600 (60 minutes)
yearStart allows you to set when the financial/tax year starts. Default:
Exclude Email Addresses
excludeEmailAddresses allows you to exclude certain email addresses/customers across all widgets. This is particularly useful if you use a specific user to debug orders, or if orders are created via the CP. Default:
Config File Example
<?php return array( '*' => array( 'cacheDuration' => 3600, 'yearStart' => 'april', 'excludeEmailAddresses' => array( 'firstname.lastname@example.org', 'email@example.com' ) ) );

Purge Inactive Carts Duration
It's recommended to increase the
purgeInactiveCartsDuration setting (https://docs.craftcms.com/commerce/v2/configuration.html#purgeinactivecartsduration) for Craft Commerce from the default (3 months) to around 6 months (
P6M). This is because the graph on the
Cart Abandonment widget spans across 6 months and might show incorrect results if this setting isn't adjusted.
