Separately, I would like to thank the team of HikaShop for their excellent and fast support.
I recommend this extension to everyone!
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.
I had the shop built within a week.
Simply the best!
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!
It needs just some adjustments and it will be perfect!
I would like to thank the developer, even if I didn't ask, for the best support.
ecommerce sites: Zencart, virtuemart, and most recently Magento.
HikaShop is quick and easy. You can really set it up and get going in
minutes. And most important: you can easily find any tool what you are
Now I'm doing this ecommerce:
and I'm finding a lot better than with virtuemart 2.0
I think I've finally found the software for me. Magento is too complicated
and slow performance, Zencart is too old and Virtuemart 2.0 has become
Congratulations! been doing a great job! I think I will soon buy the paid
It's a feature rich system that can really be configured to your needs. It's possible to achieve even greater customization through modification of the language file and php views if you're prepared to delve deeper into the system.
An added bonus would be the ability to export buyers' addresses for direct import into the Australia Post "click and send" online parcel service. Perhaps this will be a feature in the future.
Overall, Hikashop is an excellent system worth 5 stars. Top notch support too.
Since I needed a reliable e-commerce extension with good support, that made me look to others. I tried Hikashop for a month. Though I do think the documentation is not always very clear if you are not a programmer and I also think the interface can be more userfriendly, I found the possibilities of this extension very good and the support reliable and fast.
I now feel secure using this extension and trust that the developer is continuing the good work he has already done. So I say my money was well spent,
It is a very competent product that is highly recommended.
