Hi Frederik, 

To get new Commerce Manager site, we can download this one and following some steps below:

- Copy configuration files from front-end site to root folder of Commerce Manager project .

Update the EPiServer.CommerceManager package to the latest version (or 8.0 at least, refer to Commerce-specific updating steps, section Updating Commerce Manager)

- Install Azure package to Commerce Manager using nuget package EPiServer.CommerceManager.Azure (refer to Upgrading and deploying Commerce to Azure, step 2 - Upgrading NuGet packages and make the site ready for Azure)

- Apply your Azure configuration.

So Commerce Manager site is ready for deployment.

An easier way of installing Commerce Manager is to create a new ASP.Net Web Application in the same solution as the front-end site. Then you just have to add the nuget package EPiServer.CommerceManager.Azure to the empty web site to convert it to a commerce manager site ready for Azure.
