Hello, I have 4 years experience in creating website with Joomla. I actually found the superiority of this component relative to others. This is a really intuitive component within the reach of everyone, beginner also. I used this extension and I am very happy. I appreciate the help desk, for its efficiency and speed. I used the free version for development and the Business version for the production without any problem when I have upgraded. Thanks to Hikashop team (specialy Nicolas)Help desk also in french...

I tried so many different e-commerce components (both of FREE and commerce), and my last decision is HIKASHOP, an easy setup, install and configure with their tutorial documents with images as description.
And, the important thing is quick support from HIKASHOP team which I can get the answer very soon. I like this service.
I used SP-CART before with more than 15.000 articles, but I don't like their support, everything must pay and wait, wait . . . finally, I have to decide to work with HIKASHOP, this is my right choice for a stable business.
Update steps are also simple and fast.
You can try with FREE version, and decide later to use Essential or Business version depend on your need. I am sure that, you will like HIKASHOP.
Thank you HIKASHOP Team.

I cannot speak highly enough of the excellent support provided by the HikaShop team to users of the FREE HikaShop extension. There is a steep learning curve when you first get started with this complex extension but the managed forum usually results in a 24 hour turn around in respons eto any query not already answered.

The setup (Install and loading) of products is easy. There is a pay on delivery option which make is great when you do not need to have / need a payment gateway, in our case we used it for fund raising event were everything was handed out and collected payment manually.
It does everything you can imagine in regards to listing a product, details, categories, and overall easy to use. It has a nice printer friendly invoice and shipping slip.
HOWEVER, the reporting is severely lacking!
For this plug-in to be useful to you, you need to be best friends with a spread sheet application (excel or Calc)
It does not allow me to run reports, I basically have to copy the orders (ONE BY ONE) into excel so I can run reports on anything I need, the export to CSV option is a complete mess, it takes longer to make heads and tails of the export into excel than printing the invoices and retyping into excel – YES BUSSY WORK.
If you want to email customers, hickashop tries to email EVERYONE registered in your system, from the super admin down to the last registered user, not the users that bought items.
If you do not need reporting, this is a great solution; but if you would like to find out what where the most popular items of the month, or how many red trinkets where ordered, or how many green items size M you sold, or if you need to compare items sold vs. inventory – you are TOAST with this plug-in, there is no such thing.
You have to put all in excel, and built your pivot tables form there – ALL by Hand.

If reporting is not important to you and you just want to list an item and fulfill the order that you printed, then this is great.
If you want to run metrics on your shop and if you do want to do busy work and re-type all the orders by hand on excel, this I not for you.

Thank you for your review.
You might have missed the reporting tool that is available in the commercial editions of HikaShop:
It can surely display most popular items and sales of categories of products and much more than that actually.
I invite you to try out all that on our demo website:

I have been a Virtuemart user for 4 years but HIKA SHOP has now converted me. They have a wide range of options for products that allow me to do a lot with the Component. I am sure the Paid versions are even better but this free version beats out Virtuemart.. I am surprised I didn't try this one sooner. Glad I ran into an issue that couldn't be resolved easy on VM.. Hika Shop. Well done!

Yes this is a high performance multi option E-Commerce extension, but if you don't need everything this package has to offer, think twice befor you load it and try it out. The tribulations come when you start to un-install it. When you uninstall the component, you may expect the whole package to ununatall. Not true. There are over 50 plugins and modules that are still there that must be taken care of. It's these "under the hood" things that show a little technical oversight.

Dont bother looking for other shops, this is the best one youll ever find. I was so impressed with how easy is to make a perfect store, big or small. And if you have any problem the help files are amazing. thank you so much

I tried many extensions before. Neither of them could satisfy me needs. However, HikaShop appeared to be very easy, simple extension with lots of functions! It takes time to study it, like any other e-commerce extension, but after you spend some time with their forum, you can easily adjust it as much as you need.
Separately, I would like to thank the team of HikaShop for their excellent and fast support.
I recommend this extension to everyone!

Never used an e-commerce solution before for a live site. I tried some other package but it's back end interface was not well organized and confusing. I managed to build my first e-shop for a customer easily and the result was very amazing. Learning curve is not steep and theextention is very powerfull. Some updates that added new features leaded to the need of some maintenance due to files i had modified but the forum posts helped me always solve the problems without even posting. Hikashop is GREAT!

I had a very specific requirement for a resource lending library where clients can request resources for periods of time at no cost - having subscribed to a gold, silver or bronze package.

Yes it was a complicated requirement and having trawled through pretty much all the options I found Hikashop.

Hikashop does it all for me and my needs are very different.

Most impressive is the help and support from the forum. Questions posted are responded to usually same day, even for free version.

Im upgraded to business version - at the price it's incredible value with amazing free support.

I've learned loads and in a few weeks can consifder myself a Hikashop Poweruser, despite not being able to get my head round other solutions.

It is hard to know which way to go when you are new to the e-commerce thing. After struggling for about 2 weeks to get the other more well known ecommerce extension to work (seems to be very complex and buggy since the 2.5 upgrade) Hikashop is the answer to an easy to use solution with a very intuitive layout. Very smartly put together.

I had the shop built within a week.

Simply the best!

HikaShop is truly a blessing to the Joomla community. Few people are pickier than I am when it comes to shopping carts, and I can't praise HikaShop enough (and believe me, I've tried them all). Top notch customer service, total customizability for both developers and non-developers, very intuitive interface, the list goes on. And if it is missing anything you need, just ask on the forums - because they don't just mindlessly blame issues on other components like most developers do, they actually help come up with well thought-out solutions - often when it's not even a HikaShop issue. Do yourself a favor and buy the Business edition. No other component is worth the money like this is. Truly incredible!

The product is excellent, but what really sets the product apart from the competition is the excellent level of post sale customer service. Nicolas and the team have answered everyone of my questions helpfully and thoroughly and even went as far as to assist me with a phpmyadmin issue that was preventing my hikashop from working.

I cannot thank the Hikashop team enough for being so patient with me. Their support is great. The free version is already so great but the business version is the one you want to have! Worth every penny.
I do not have much experience with joomla and after being scared away when seeing virtuemart interface, i was so relieved finding hikashop.
I do hope they stay around for ever!
I have never had to wait to be helped. They always reply as soon as possible. I wonder if they ever get any sleep...

Thank you guys!

A software for those who do not want to have problems. For those who need an online store right away without wasting time. A software for those who, when he needs help, receives it immediately and solved the problem instantly.
It needs just some adjustments and it will be perfect!

Like others here, I had been struggling with VirtueMart 2 for some considerable time when I turned to HikaShop in desperation. What a relief! It's clear and simple to set up, and its layout both looks good straight out of the box and is easier than Vmart's to customise (if you need to). Best of all, though, support via the forum is super-fast and easy to follow. I quickly upgraded to the paid 'Essentials' version because I needed the 'product options' feature for a complex product, but the free version should be fine for most people. I'll be sticking with HikaShop for all future sites.

I had wasted several days of my time trying to get 2 of the other Joomla shopping carts working without any luck. Unfortunately, one of them was even a paid component w/ no refund. I needed something that worked straight out of the box & this program did the trick. PLUS it had everything I needed for my shopping cart! THANK YOU!!!!!

The component is really powerful and still quite intuitive. However, I needed to make a few adjustments to code, so I searched the Hikashop forum first, just to give it a try before spending hours on figuring out things. I found out, that the support from developer is stunning. People who asked questions of my interest got answered fast, their issues were solved in couple of hours. I spend just a few minutes searching and pasting code form existing threads.
I would like to thank the developer, even if I didn't ask, for the best support.

A good shopping cart with the most user friendly administration of all cart extensions.
Only missing the big amount of add-ons like virtuemart.

We're working on that ;)
