After taking bids of $1,500+ for a customized eBook store, I decided to use HikaShop Business and HikaMarket. Setting up some things was a little difficult, but Jerome in the forum and tech support were quick to help me.
I was able to match eBooks with their authors, and it even lets you split payments so that both you and your vendor get paid at the same time for a purchase. I give it 5/5 stars!

Generally, I will use Virtue-mart to build shopping carts in my client websites. Recently, One of my client suggested this component and to be honest it's very good, simple to understand, configure and bug free :)

I strongly recommend this. Soon, I will purchase the commercial edition.

The price is very low regard's to support from forum and the number of extensions implemented by hikashop team.Many updates during years are accessible from pay account or in the forum ( php code).The real 2 problems for user is relative to joomla not hikashop. 1) worflow is a mess so it ll be difficult to use anothers extensions ( not a problem since hikashop implement their own ). 2) make work hikashop is really easy but the focus point is css/raster/look and feel/template(edit css code using joomla is not efficient you need a real css editor , HKS ll give you css support even it is not their job to do that). Responsive / Media Query template is vaporware in e -commerce market , focus on fixed width template is enough work .The forum and documentation have been enhance and is like support : accessible without pay. Use the basic verion is not serious for real business go to business.Some css code are hard code in php file and many !important css keywords appear in CSS file but don't know if it is really a problem even it is not recommanded.
The licence ( upgrade) is for 1 year for 1 website ?

We integrated HikaShop on several websites and all were built rather quickly and are easy to maintain !

The support team is really efficient and helped us on a very specific problem very quickly !

Coming from Magento, I was quite doubtful about setting up an ecommerce in Joomla. I tried several solution, and ended up using Hokashop, which I find to be the best available for this CMS. Documentation could be improved though. Overall, very good extension.

Good component !
Higly customizable, and in "one" component, you haven't many modules to install.
Really good support team on the forum.
Quite easy to use. A good free simple e-commerce solution.

I've been trying out eCommerce components for my Joomla site. This is the one for us!

It was very easy to set up. The documentation is superb, clear, organised and in good English. The forum was very useful.

The example site gives you access to both the front and back-end of the shop so you can quickly see how things can be set up, which is very useful.

The features were excellent, and had things in that other components charged for. I started with the free version, which I am sure would suit most start-ups, but will go for a paid one soon, as it seems to represent excellent value for money.

Highly recommended.

I have been using an older e-commerce component for many years and have slowly been getting disappointed by it. I have not has the guts to switch from the tried and tested until now. A client needed a store with about 60 products in it and design was very important to them. After installing my old component and not being happy with the layout I decided to try something new. HikaShop had great reviews so I decided o try their free version.

I have been soooo happy with the componet. In the past I would often have to edit the component source code to get it to do what my clients needed. Not any more. The template files are relatively easy to edit and the configuration makes the site and even the checkout process extremely flexible.

I would encourage anybody building an eCommerce site to try HikaShop. Spend some time in the admin area and get to know it. I believe that you will be pleasantly surprised.

Thank you for an awesome product!

Seriously! Why are you reading this. Download. Install and finally work with the best Shoppingcart solution available on the net. Hikashop does everything what a shoppingcart solution should do and it can do more. The free version is very complete and can be used by most of the webstores. And if more functionality is needed than upgrading to one of the two paid options is cheap, fast and easy.

I have tested Hikashop against Virtuemart 1 & 2, Redshop, JoomShopping and Tienda. All of them are great on their own way but compared to Hikashop they all fail on certain items.

Hikashop chart:

Installation: 5/5
Customization: 5/5
Documentation: 5/5
Overall tasks: 5/5
User friendliness: 5/5
Support: 5/5

Some times it takes a while to get an answer(between 2 to 8 hours) because they reproduce and solve the problem on their end and when it is solved they give you the solution.

Hikashop Team: Keep Up The Great Work!!!

I have had a great experience with everyone from HikaShop, their support is unmatchable. They are an absolutely amazing team. The product is so easy to use, if you have any problems support usually answer within two hours and will help you no matter what the problem.

If you were really struggling to decide what to use, then go with HikaShop, It's the easiest to use, They've got everything you could need in one place and most importantly it's a proper support system.

excellent extension. i switched from virtuemart because i find it very easy and quick to configure and to insert products. Only negative thing i found in combination with sh404sef component there are some issues with metadata which i reported to both developers. So if you need to use both components and you have high need to modify the matadata for each variant of products you'll have some difficulties. But unles this i like it very much

After using virtue mart for my last 2 websites and having many issues - I was interested in finding another option.

This was a great find for me - the support is outstanding. The cart is easy to configure.

I'm please and will use this extension for future sites.

I am a beginner to medium skill level and I struggled with many open-source and a subscription based shopping cart before I found Hikashop. The cart is very easy to use and setup. Customer Service is Excellent and company seems to be solid!
All products are well worth the money! If you are reading this, my advice to you as go for it! My personnel opinion: After trying the rest, this cart is the best!

I have used the free version which offers all I needed to set up a professional ecommerce website with a large number of payment plugins to choose from.

I needed a little support to tweak something and it was there within 24 hours.

Would not hesitate to upgrade to paid version for more features. Great product - thank you to the Hika Team.

I am using the starter edition as a prelude to purchasing the full product. I chose Hikashop because it integrates perfectly with Akeeba Subscriptions.

Hikashop is an advanced shopping cart with loads of payment processors and I found it much easier to set up than other shopping carts. There have been a number of bugs in the product - but I am happy to report that every one of these issues has been resolved in less than 24 hours. The shortest response time from the developer was an amazing 7 minutes!

Nicolas and Jerome monitor the forums and provide excellent support even for the starter edition. Hikashop is a relatively new kid on the block but it is a fully fledged shopping cart and I for one shall continue to use it as long as it is developed.

A hearty thanks to the team for a first class product.

Having used several ecommerce components in the past and always leaning towards Redshop I took the plunge and decided to try Hikashop as I just needed fairly basic functions to replace my existing redshop ecommerce component that was running under joomla 1.5 and as I was upgrading the site to Joomla 2.5 I thought 'what the hell' and boy was I glad I did. To say that Hikashop just works would be an understatement, it works brilliantly and is very flexible to the point that I could adapt the basic free version to get all the functions I needed. It would be fair to say that there is a steep learning curve to start with in order to understand the structure of Hikashop and how it works, but the documentation is also excellent so this was not a problem in any way. If I could give 11 out of 10 I would, Brilliant, well done!

I can´t really compare Hikashop to other components but I feel like I don´t have to. Here my experience:

I bought ans installed Hikashop. At the first moment I was confused about all the options (backend). It seemed complicated and my first steps without reading the documentation were not so successful. But then I read the detailled documentation and found out that it was pretty easy. The whole shops works perfect and has really awesom functions.

The really amazing thing is the support. I mean it! I experienced great support for other modules and components but the hika team is more than amazing. They replied quickly, took time to answer all my question until everything was solved and even published one update because of a customization (in hika serials).
I absolutely recommend hikashop for everybody who is looking for a professional shop system for physical and digital goods and works long therm with it.
It is absolutely worth it to take time and learn to work with the shop.
