Ordering and Checkout processes are most critical parts of any ecommerce business and they require attention as long as business owner you want to stay customer friendly.
In this video review I will talk about Magento 2 extension that is called “Quick Order” and might help to improve ordering process especially for the customer who buy bulk or wholesale.
Upon the installation I realized that extension is useful and works good. I liked smoth product manipulations on the Quick Order page by adding different products into Cart including use of .csv upload that I think extremely useful for the wholesale customers. If you do business with wholesale customers, I difinatelly recommend you to consider Quick Order extension. However, if you do not work with wholesale customers the benefits from the extension looks questionable to me. Also during the use, I found that it’s not recognize that I have the other MagePlaza extension installed – “One Page Checkout”. And every time when I clicked “Checkout” button on “Quick Order” page it forwarded me to the default Two Step Checkout, but not the One Page Checkout as I expected. But I think this minor thing will be resolved quickly in one of the upcoming extension updates. Overall the extension is good and works solid.
All the extensions made by MagePlaza are very easy in installation and this one is not an exception. Let’s start:
- Make a full backup of your Magento 2 installation especially if you are about to install on the live environment.
- Launch FTP software such as FileZilla or WinSCP and connect to your server.
- Create the following directory path: app/code/Mageplaza/QuickOrder
- Download ZIP file with extension and unzip it.
- Upload all the files from extension folder to “app/code/Mageplaza/QuickOrder”
Now login via SSH for example with Putty software to the root directory with your Magento 2 files and execute the following commands one-by-one:
composer require mageplaza/module-core php bin/magento setup:upgrade php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
Note: you can skip this command #1 if you already have MagePlaza core module installed
One it’s done, go to Admin section and finish configuration. Practically you just need to set 3 options, the rest are optional.
Go to: Stores -> Configuration -> MAGEPLAZA EXTENSIONS ->Quick Order
- Enable Quick Order – uncheck it and set to “Yes”
Other tabs and settings are optional.
Save Configuration and Clean the Cache on Magento side and in your browser!
Final checks…. Never skipp them!
Open your website, authorise as customer test Quick Order as well as Checkout page to make sure that everything works fine and critical functionality have no errors.
I hope you will enjoy using the extension and feel free to comment on this if you have questions or concerns.

I liked Quick Order extension which might be useful especially if you do business with wholesale customers. However, the benefits of using this extension for regular customers is limited and I am not sure if I’d wanted to have it on my site if I had no wholesales customers… Overall extension is Good and can be recommended especially for the case mentioned above.
