# Installing plugins via the Marketplace

The Marketplace is a section of the admin panel that lists all plugins that can be installed in a Strapi application. The Marketplace is accessible from General > Marketplace in the main navigation of the admin panel.


Plugins can also be installed via the Command Line Interface (see Developer Documentation).

Interface of the Marketplace

The Marketplace displays each available plugin in a box, which contains:

  • the name of the plugin,
  • the description of the plugin,
  • indications on the current status of the plugin:
    • "Compatible with your app": indicates that the plugin is not installed yet but can be installed on your Strapi application
    • "Already installed": indicates that the plugin is already installed and available in your Strapi application


Click on the icon next to the name of a plugin to be redirected to the plugin package in the Strapi GitHub repository.

To install a new plugin via the Marketplace:

  1. Go to General > Marketplace.
  2. Among the available plugin, choose the one you wish to install.
  3. Click on the Download button in the chosen plugin's box.
