The best I have seen. With the free edition you can already make unbelievable things : configure what you want, even the checkout process with drag & drop !
The support is really good and free too.
I have bought the business licence because I need it, but test yourself the free version, you will see how powerful it is !
But just think that you will need few hours to make the tour and configure it from A to Z.
Reaaly good job ! Thanks to the Hikari team :)

I purchased Hikashop Business as I was not happy with the other shopping carts that I have tried (currently having a valid commercial license for another shopping cart). Have now done two websites using Hikashop and I am very happy with the software. Took a bit of time to get used to the setup of various features and functionalities, but going through the user documentation combined with a great forum and excellent support from Nicolas and his team I have started to get the hang of how it works. I will most definitely recommend Hikashop.

This extension is a reference for an ecommerce on Joomla, for small websites as well as the big ones.
The team is really reactive for all kind of questions.
I just want to say thanks guys for your work.

I have to submit this review for Hikashop for Business (paid version). As a user of Magento and Virtuemart, I just can't get over how much functionality is built into Hikashop. For a fraction of the cost of a full-featured Magento experience, Hikashop does everything you want - and more - for eCommerce. From filters to unlimited display options to complex SKU configurations. It does take a commitment to learn. Do expect to read the documentation and the forums, and do expect to play around with it. But once you understand the architecture and the logic, it really is brilliant. Technical support is good. They're not warm LOL - can be snippy - but they do provide excellent support and the product really does work.

I have been using VirtueMart for years and I recently switched to Hikashop for a new website. HS is powerful but overpriced. With the free edition, you quickly run into frustrating limitations. Purchasing the 'Essential' edition, at the cost of a hefty 50 Euros or $70, removes some but not all of these limitations. At that price, for example, you can't even fully customize notification emails such as adding your own logo. To remove all limitations (and do what VirtueMart allows you to do for free), you need to buy the "business" edition for 100 Euros or $140. Support has been quick and courteous. However, for the best value I recommend that you stick with VM if you can.

Hikashop has it all, everything you need to have a professional working online shop.
I have tried other Joomla e-Commerce components and all are lacking but with Hikashop you get everything you need.
And most importantly the support is excellent, the developers actually respond to your questions and go the extra mile. It is really refreshing to see this type of service in the Joomla market, others can learn from these guys. I see Hikashop going far in the future. Thanks for helping me get my shop online Hikashop!

in india ccavenue is main payment collector and hika doesnt support it officially as ive searched their forums ... so its of no use for indian sites
Owner's reply


HikaShop doesn't have such plugin by default indeed. However, it is compatible with the payment API from TechJoomla and thus can work with the payment plugins from TechJoomla here:
Among the available plugins, you'll find a CCAvenue plugin that can be used with HikaShop.

My only regret with Hikashop is :
Why I haven't used it earlier?
I build websites since 10 years. I used the old component of ecommerce for Joomla. Now with Hikashop, it's really a pleasure to rebuild my sites.
Thank You, verry much to the team for your wonderful Work.
About the support? Today it's sunday, i ask an advice and they answer immediately...

I've set up a few e-shops in the past years, used K2Mart and Virtuemart on earlier projects.

In the past weeks a new project emerged, looked really complex, I read over all the e-commerce solutions' descripitions I've not tried earlier. Finally give HikaShop Business a chance.

I still not regret it. Faster, more flexible with tons of FREE plugins, and what is really matter for me: kind, detailed and fast support. It's another dimension comparing to the earlier ones.

Config parameters are so detailed, that I get lost in the first time, but after a little time, you understand how it works.

I'm lucky to find that and made the correct decision on that day. Totally satisfied.

Thanks Nicolas, Jerome & all the team members!

I'm using the free version of HikaShop right now and I like its functionality. Slight (very small) learning curve to get it just right. But, once you got it - it's a wow factor that can give the more established commerce programs a run for their money.
Lots of nice options included with the free version. Can't wait to extend with the full version.
Keep up the excellent work HikaShop.

Even it is my first site that I developped with Joomla, I find Hikashop very good because it allows a wide range of possibilities, but always in a simple and reliable way, and the front result is beautifull.

I appreciate the great personalization of HikaShop.
It takes some time to understand:
- The menu architecture and integrated modules in HikaShop but once understood what did you want;
- Commands with "built-in" value to be tested to find out where the original value,
- The power behind each parameter to be discovered with the help online and very detailed in all languages​​.
  There the couple Hikashop-Akeeba Subscriptions "Core" that manages subscriptions as simply a product.
And finally the forum moderators with answers relevant to 90% in the next hour.
I tested and used for over 2 years and after having tested all I put 5 stars without hesitation.

If you know a little about programming, you can make miracles. It has a great API and the support rocks!
Worth paying because you get something good.

HS is powerful, with free and paid options. I have used "Essential" twice (probably upgrading one of those to "Business"). I'm a very limited programmer, with a bit of CSS knowledge and next to zero PHP knowledge.

I gave it a good as opposed to excellent as it's so complex that customization for non-programmers is difficult. All files that you need to customize can be accessed via the dashboard where changes are saved elsewhere so retained on updated/upgrades - this is very important! Don't edit via FTP or locally - only through the dashboard. However, any given page is made up of multiple files so figuring out which file holds the code you want to edit isn't always easy and there's no road map to follow.

The interface is sometimes confusing with editing of php files in one place and css elsewhere, for example. Getting my head around variants and options was tough and I'm still not 100% on it.

Support is pretty fast and reasonably good, though I felt, at times, not being a programmer hindered me from understanding what they said.

Bottom line is that this is a powerful shopping system with add ons like Hika Market (for front end access - I also used this), but a caution for non-programmers that this is a big mouthful to bite off if straight out of the box is not what you want.
