  3. Go to our Facebook store extension page - Create a Magento Facebook Store.
  4. Click on the “Install Now” button.


 4. Choose the relevant “Magento Connect” according to your Magento version;
The following versions should switch to “Magento Connect 2” –

  • Community Edition, 1.5 and up should choose “Magento Connect 2”;
  • Enterprise Edition 1.9-RC3 & later;
  • Professional Edition 1.9 & later;


5. Check the “I agree to the extension license agreement” box.
6. Click on the “Get Extension Key” button.
7. Copy the extension key –

    a. Magento connect 1 key - magento-community/Facebook_store_application
    b. Magento Connect 2 key -

8. Get back to your Magento Connect Manager, paste the extension key at the second text field (see screenshot below), and click the “Install” button –


Note: if you weren’t logged to your Magento Connect Manager when earlier, just log in to your Magento admin panel, and click: System> Magento connect> Magento Connect Manager (see screenshot below):


9. Click on the “Proceed” button:


10. A DOS window will open up. Wait until you see “Cache cleaned successfully”.


 11. Scroll up and click on the “Return to Admin” link –


* If you are using Magento compilation, and you have disabled it in step #2 above, you can now recompile and re-enable it.

 12. Click on the new “StoreYa” tab that was added to your dashboard, and then click on “Create API”:


13. Click on the “Create API” button:
