It installs perfectly and everything is accessible straight away. The documentation is well laid out and easy to read and put into practice. With this being my first site I did contact the developer for support on a number of occasions and he was always prompt with replies - normally on the same day, and the help was always thorough, explained and polite.
For a free cart I am impressed with the product itself and the amount of help I received with it. Overall a great cart. Thank you for providing it.
Working with HikaShop is a pleasure. The best way to say it is that it just works. Out of the both not only does it work great, it also looks great. It is also highly customizable, and quite easily so. All customization can be done right through the admin interface including template overrides.
I can't recommend this shopping cart enough. If you want a no nonsense shopping cart that works exactly as it should, with fantastic support and documentation, look no further than HikaShop.
Used Hikashop for the first time.
What a breath of fresh air compared to wrestling with virtuemart.
Hikashop is a simple shopping cart solution that my clients can use without constant calls about how to do things.
Everything the positive reviewers say here is absolutely true.
• Well thought out in a business process sense
• Has great auto generated invoices and status emails
• Is very feasible for non technical users to set up
• Once set up will be very easy to maintain (create new products)
• Great sales administration interface
• Good documentation
• Highly functional, even true for the free version.
• Did not need support but from the tone of the forum, that is great too.
BY FAR THE BEST! The free version is very robust and I could easily make it do what I needed and if I had a question they HikaShop team would answer within hours.
I am now convinced that this is the shopping for all my future websites. Don't waste your energy with the others! SIMPLY THE BEST!
I played about with the free version for a few months, but finally decided that the best way to say 'Thanks' to the Hikashop team was to purchase a commercial licence.
It was a small price to pay for the help I have received. Well done guys, and judging from some of the other reviews here, I'm not alone in wanting to say a big thank you!
I new about Joomla but I'd never made a Joomla site not ever made a website for an on-line catalog.
But thankfully, I heard about HikaShop and with the wonderful support from Nicolas in the Hikari team, I had a site up and running in 2weeks. It's taken about two months to take photos of about 500 products and refine the site, but there have been no hitches, thanks to VERY prompt replies to every question. I sometime wonder if Nicolas ever sleeps.
This is a great program, very enjoyable to work with and I have not the slightest hesitation in recommending it highly.
