Besides installing Magento 2 extensions via SSH manually or through the Marketplace Wizard, installing via composer is another very popular and even the most simple and safe to install an extension.
In this article, we will provide you with a step-by-step instruction about how to do to get a Magento 2 extension installed on the website by Composer. Note that this guide is only for extensions that are bought directly in our store.
Get the Details
Login to your account to get your Composer Authentication Keys and Credentials which are automatically generated after purchasing one of our extensions.
You can also create new Composer keys with a description in case you want to change environments and keys.
Backup (optional but recommended)
We strongly recommend testing your installation in a development environment prior to releasing it to production. Also, make sure you have a full backup available of your store in case you need to make a rollback, more information about creating backup and the roll back can be found here.
