The configuration is straight forward and the documentation is extremely comprehensive. It was the perfect fit for what our client wanted.
Just tried Hikashop and 3 days later (might I add I was on experimental usage) and this afternoon got fully engrossed. I've set up most of my options, set up categories, associate the necessary modules... am so happy. And av not yet even asked for assistance....
I recommend this for anybody aiming to get ecommerce application within Joomla. Adding payment gateways is even easier than HTML!!
I'm going Pro soon. Thanks alot to the Hikari team.
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.
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:
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!
