You can create observer for to collect order data, You can use checkout_onepage_controller_success_action event to get order details.

Create events.xml


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
<event name="checkout_onepage_controller_success_action">
    <observer name="your_observer_name" instance="Vendor\ModuleName\Observer\YourMethod" />



namespace Vendor\Module\Observer;

use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Event\Observer;

class YourClass implements ObserverInterface
public function execute(Observer $observer)
      $order = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder();
    // Do some stuff


For save data to custom table you can refer this link. Here

  • public function execute(Observer $observer) { $order = $observer->getEvent()->getOrder(); // Do some stuff echo '<pre>'; print_r($order); echo '</pre>'; echo "Order has been tracked"; } aboce code only print {Order has been tracked} Mar 12, 2018 at 13:55
