Facebook Shop installation guide for Magento 2

To install the Facebook Shop extension please follow this Magento 2 guide:

To install a new extension, you will need to access your admin dashboard and navigate to System>Web Setup Wizard.


Accessing the Web Setup Wizard menu in Magento 2


From the 3 blocks of options you have at your disposal, choose the Component Manager.


Accessing the Component Manager in Magento 2

Here you will see the already installed extensions on your website, any new updates for them and new extensions which you can install. Click on the Install link below the New Purchases label.


Viewing the Available for Installation Extensions


Select the extension/s you want to install and click on the Install button or mark then and select a bulk install action form the top of the page.


Selecting a new Extension to install


STEP 1 Start a Readiness Check

The First Step is the Readiness Check which will check if your Magento 2 installation has all of the necessary components required for the extension installation. Click on the Start Readiness Check button.


Starting a Readiness Check


After the check has been completed and your installation covers all of the requirements, you will be able to proceed by clicking on the Next button.


Successfully completing a Readiness Check


If you have a component marked as red, you will be able to check how to fix the issues with it by clicking on the link below it. This will direct you to the official Magento 2 documentation section where you will find a guide on the matter.


STEP 2 Backup your Data

The second step involves creating a Backup on your Store. We have recommended you to do this at the start of this tutorial as sometimes the integrated Magento Backup system will not create a proper backup of your data which is something you want to avoid at all costs.

You can de-select the backup options here and click on the Next button or click on Create Backup if you have selected an option.


Creating a Backup before the extension install


If you choose the latter, you will receive a confirmation screen that the backup has been successfully created and then you can hit the Next button to proceed.


Completing the Backup creation step


STEP 3 Install the Extension

In the last step, you will see again the extension/s you wanted to install. Click on the Install button to continue.


Installing a new Magento 2 Extension


Once the installation has been completed, you will receive a confirmation and the ability to go back by clicking on the Back to Setup Tool button. After approving the installation you will be prompted to sign in to StoreYa and the products import will start automatically.
Once the import process is finished you will need to connect the StoreYa Facebook shop to your Facebook business page and publish your store.

Congratulations, you now know how to install extensions in your Magento 2 website.
