Install the extension into your Magento store

To set up the extension:

  • Head to your Magento Admin Panel then to System > Magento Connect > Magento Connect Manager.
  • You will see a listing of all the extensions currently installed in your Magento store - if you have any extensions from PCA Predict already, uninstall these, and clear the Magento cache (Magento Admin Panel > System > Cache Management > Flush Magento Cache) before proceeding.
  • Paste your Extension Key into Magento Connect Manager, and click Install, then Proceed, or browse for the downloaded package file and click Upload.
  • The console at the bottom of the page will report when the module has been installed and the cache has been cleared.
