Uninstalling

In order to completely remove Commerce from your Drupal site, you will first need to delete all existing data. You can do this through the Admin UI using the Extend toolbar item and then clicking on the Uninstall tab.

Type 'commerce' into the text box at the top of the page to filter the list by Commerce modules.

Scan through the list for items that say:

There is content for the entity type:

Click the provided link to permanently remove the content for each entity type.

For example, if you have created a Store for your site, you will see:

uninstall_store

Click the Remove stores link.

Once all content has been removed, you can start uninstalling the commerce modules. You will only be able to uninstall a few at a time because of dependencies. For example, you will not be able to uninstall the base Commerce module until all other commerce modules are installed. Note: if you have extended your Drupal Commerce site with any modules that are dependent upon Commerce, those modules will also need to be uninstalled before you are able to uninstall Commerce.

Here you can see boxes checked for 5 of the Commerce modules which can be uninstalled. After clicking the Uninstall button, it will be possible to uninstall additional modules.

uninstall_commerce

Since the Commerce base module provides a field type, it cannot be uninstalled together with the other modules. This is a known Drupal limitation. You will be blocked from uninstalling Commerce and a see a "Fields pending deletion" message. You can delete the field in question by running Cron. You can run Cron through the Admin UI by navigating to Configuration > System > Cron.

Once all Commerce modules have been uninstalled, use Composer to remove the Commerce dependency from your project.

composer remove drupal/commerce

At this point, Commerce and all its data have been uninstalled from your Drupal site.
