Support is excellent and fast. He Knows exactly where the bug was although the bug was caused by me and from the template css itself.
Am so impressed with the service that I purchased a licensed version. Well done, Hikashop. Will definitely use your program for future projects! 100 stars!!!
Thank you for your review.
On a side note, we are currently working on a redesign of our demo website so that it looks better and actually like a real shop.
I probably won't need to upgrade to the commercial version but plan to do so at some point as a way to thank these guys for their outstanding work and total commitment to their product.
Whenever I think that it can't do something, I am usually wrong, and when I write on the support forum, my questions are answered in a flash.
It doesn't make your website break, it works straight out of the box, and the support is wonderful.
I'm not a developer, but I have been able to make HikaShop look like it belongs to my site, and I have had no trouble figuring out how to use it.
If you are looking for something that just works for free, then get it. If you want all the bells and whistles, then get the business version - it's worth more than the listed price!
Well done guys, such a great find, and such a relief because I can stop looking now!
Outstanding work guys!
The only thing, that doesn't statisfy me, is no option to sell "with a delay"
*delivery time 2~3 days;
*delivery time 2~3 weeks (manufacturing).
All the rest is Ok!
Concerning credit cards processing, that's just not true. HikaShop includes more that 10 different payment plugins. Of which, moneybookers, authorize.net and alertpay are all valid alternatives to paypal in the USA.
Concerning shipping, we started working on a UPS shipping plugin as you said. It will come. In the mean time, you can use the manual shipping methods plugin to manually enter your shipping rates. You don't have to let your customers have a free shipping.
Please remember that HikaShop starter is an extension that we provide for free. We have an API to develop plugins so if you're missing a plugin, you can develop it or have it developed for you.
If you want to have your customers not register as a joomla user but just in HikaShop you can use the "registration" option under the tab checkout of the configuration of HikaShop for that.
Other than that, users in HikaShop are normal joomla users which can be in different joomla user groups (propects, customers, suppliers, employees for example). But that has nothing to do with HikaShop, it's handled by Joomla. So I don't understand the point you're trying to make.
If you have more information on your issue, you can post a message on our forum and we will look at it.
I happened to stumble on HiksShop and was initially impressed with the high praise found on the JED reviews. I decided to give it a try, so I downloaded and installed the free version on my site. I had LOTS of questions about functions available, and needs I had, relating to the Business edition of HikaShop. All of my pre-sale questions were answered promptly by Nicolas in the forums. Within 2 days I purchased a license for the Business edition, and I could not be happier with that decision.
HikaShop is incredibly feature-rich, and has been able to handle anything I've thrown at it. I have it up and running on a Joomla 1.6 site, and it works like a charm. Unlike many developers who purport to have J1.6 versions available, this one actually fully utilizes the new ACL features in nearly every regard. Kudos to the development team for that! Incidentally, there are some developers of HikaShop who also work at developing Acymailing, so for anyone that has worked with that product, I will tell you that you are dealing with a similarly robust and well-written extension here.
The absolute BEST thing about HiksShop is the support. It seems these guys never sleep! No matter when I submit a question in the forums I get a prompt reply. No matter how trivial my questions have been (and I know I've asked some pretty bad ones), Nicolas responds politely and thoroughly answers the question. In fact, when I have asked questions about a function I would like to have, Nicolas has time and time again gone above and beyond by actually telling me what code to insert in what file to do what I want! How many other developers out there will take that step without even asking? Not many!
For those of you that like to dig into the code to make changes yourself, this extension is a DREAM to work with. The code is clean, logical and well documented. The extension runs amazingly fast and easily fit with the Yootheme template I am using. Oh, and I must mention that the integration between HikaShop and Acymailing is phenomenal. Do yourself a favor and buy both!!!!
In short, this is a fantastic product with unbelievable support. Look no further when you need a robust, well-supported and feature-rich storefront.
Great response and very, very fast.
The script is yet in the begining but is already a very complete solution and very stable.
I have no complains at all.
They even have a very complete free version! :D
Only con I can think of is that it would be nice to see some video tutorials. Basic functions of getting a shop setup. For those who are more visual learners.
It is simply a flawless extension with professional support.
This was a great find for me - the support is outstanding. The cart is easy to configure (especially with support for questions during the process).
I'm please and will use this extension for future sites.
Installation was a breeze and most questions can be answered by looking through the forums.
If you have more precise ideas, could you post them on our forum or contact us via our contact form ? That would help us know what you mean and what could be improved.
After only one day, I have a working shopping cart, ready to do business.
The cart does have a small learning curve but HikaShop went all out with documentation. From within the backend workflow, just click the help button and boom, you've got your answers! If you need further help, just go to their forums and you'll get an answer.
The display is nice and can be customized.
Thank you HikaShop!
I really love the way the credit card info collection works as well as the ease of use as I was able to get it all installed and working great with little help from the documentation, which is very thorough!
Works great with Artisteer templates.
