Usage after installation


When you customize Magento 2 to your needs, conversion is everything. So part of the customization process will definitely include the checkout process, including the success page that is visited once the checkout is completed. But when you refresh the success page, the session is cleaned up and you are redirected back to the cart.

This extension is ment to solve this specific issue. Instead of hacking the Magento 2 core, you can install our Magento2 extension in a simple and clean manner, and preview the success-page at any time. You simply point your browser to the preview URL and voila, there's your success page:


You can also test a specific order with the following:

Quick Start

Get up and running with your Yireo extension

Installation via composer URL

We recommend to install Magento 2 extensions via composer. See the Composer project for instructions on how to get composer up and running. Once composer is installed, use the following command to install our extension.

composer require yireo/magento2-checkouttester2

This will make composer download the package from Packagist. After the composer installation has finished, use the following commands to enable the module within Magento:

bin/magento module:enable Yireo_CheckoutTester2
bin/magento cache:clean
bin/magento setup:upgrade

After these commands, the extension is ready for use in Magento. If you were already logged into the Magento Admin Panel, make sure to logout and log back in again, before proceeding. Do not forget to grab yourself a manual copy of our extension as a backup.

Manual installation

Please note that we strongly recommend using composer instead. If you bump into issues with this manual procedure, the first thing we need to ask is whether you have installed all dependencies, as mentioned in the composer.json file of this extension. If the composer.json file of this extension mentions requirements, you need to fulfill these requirements. This could involve checking for PHP requirements but also installing third party add-ons. Sounds difficult? Yes! That's why we can only recommend you to use composer. The manual installation does NOT make your life easier, even if you think it does.

Do use composer: It allows for dependency tracking and in the end, prevents breaking your site. However, in some cases, it might be required to do a non-composer installation. For these exceptional situations, download the module ZIP from our site (under the tab File Downloads). Next, create a folder with the following name and copy to the ZIP contents to it:


After the files have been uploaded, confirm that all files are in place. For instance, you should have a file like app/code/Yireo/CheckoutTester2/etc/module.xml. Next, use the following commands to enable the module within Magento:

bin/magento module:enable Yireo_CheckoutTester2
bin/magento cache:clean
bin/magento setup:upgrade

After these commands, the extension is ready for use in Magento. If you were already logged into the Magento Admin Panel, make sure to logout and log back in again, before proceeding. Do not forget to grab yourself a manual copy of our extension as a backup.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, it is not. As a policy, all our Yireo software is unencrypted - we do not make use of technologies like ionCube or ZendOptimizer. All PHP-code is open source, but for commercial extensions the code is only given to paying customers.

You probably would like to know if this extension is working under a specific Magento version 2.X.Y. However, from a technical point of view, the question is wrong: The major Magento version 2.X.Y is not semantical but instead used for marketing purposes. It doesn't give any guarantees.

Instead, we maintain compatibility with the actual modules that lie underneath (like Magento_Catalog or the Magento Framework). And version management for these dependencies is handled via composer. We strongly advice you to rely on composer to answer the question whether our extension works under a specific Magento version. This is the only way to guarantee compatibility in a professional way.

Alternatively, study our CHANGELOG for details on the progress we made.

This extension is offered for free. Feel free to go the GitHub repository (see the link under Quick Start> Downloads) and open an Issue there. Please note that this is a voluntary open source project. The more helpful you are in describing the issue at hand, the more likely volunteers can come in to help you with the issue.


Getting support

If you run into problems, we are happy to help you out with the following resources:

  • Check FAQ on this page
