How to install extensions from Magento Marketplace

To install a new extension from Magento Marketplace, you’ll need to login into your Magento 2 Admin account and proceed through the following steps:

Step 1: Go to System ToolsWeb Setup Wizard and visit the Extension Manager page;

Step 2: You should find yourself on the sign in page where you’ll be requested to provide your personal Public Key and Private Key.

Step 3: The next page will display the number of extensions you can update and the number of ones you can still install. By scrolling the page down you will be presented with an overview of the extensions which you can either update or uninstall. In our example, we will click the Review and Install button to install a new extension called Advanced Search Module by clicking the Install button on the right side of the page:
