Commerce without Rules

Commerce 2.x no longer relies on the Rules module. We now have event subscribers (example: order state changes), resolvers (example: calculating sell price and calculating VAT), and entities configured with conditions (example: payment gateways).

Be aware that some events correspond to state transitions, and the State Machine module fires them upon a transition. You can find the metadata for these in MODULENAME.workflows.yml. Events are also documented in the \Drupal\MODULENAME\Event namespace as a final class containing constants. For an example of using these, see \Drupal\commerce_log\EventSubscriber::getSubscribedEvents().

Partial list of where the Rules went

Commerce 1.x Commerce 2.x
Completing the checkout process Rules event commerce_order.place transition; modules react to this and alter the order as needed
When an order is first paid in full Rules event commerce_order.fulfill transition (note: does not correspond 1:1 to Drupal 7, but can be used for many of the same purposes)
After adding a product to the cart Rules event commerce_cart.entity.add event
After updating an existing commerce order commerce_order.commerce_order.update event
Calculating the sell price of a product event Now handled through price resolvers, tax resolvers, and order processors. Search for tag: commerce_price.price_resolver in the codebase for examples.
Select available payment methods for an order event Now handled through payment gateway configurations at Administration » Commerce » Configuration » Payment gateways. These support various conditions to define when payment gateways should be usable by customers.
