all you should know

Posted on 21 May 2015

it is not fair to compare Hikashop with other shopping system in joomla , because you should compare it with other shopping cart cms

Ease of use

every thing is clear , drag and drop option , if you create menu believe that you do same , completely reasonable system


they support even free version as well as commercial edition


very big online library and good from to solve your problem

I used this to: I should have a shopping cart with cms together. i compare more than 40 cms and shopping cart and i think hikashop is best choose in joomla without any doubt and even one of the best shopping cart with the whole cms that you can find , try free version to understand ;)


This program has plenty of features, more than I will ever need. The interface is well designed and it seems like anything is possible.

Ease of use

It will take a little while to get your head around all the features and how to set things up. But once you work this out it's very smooth.


This is an area where I want to give a score more than 100. Exceptional support - fast, detailed, very helpful.


The documentation is well written and very detailed. Covers almost everything I needed to know.


Very good functionality, tons of features, and well thought out! really nice interface for store admin, very easy - simply WOW! a must try!

Ease of use

On the setup side it takes some time to learn the concept for setup - which is very different from VM, but i would never back to VM now


Top notch - very knowledgeable, always have good informed answers and very helpful


A lot of documentation is available, not always simple to find what you're looking for - but the excellent support makes up for that :-)

I used this to: Online Stores -


After completing two complex projects with Hikashop Business, I don't believe there is anything Hikashop Business version cannot do.

Ease of use

HIkashop Business is simple to install. For complex websites, CSS and PHP modules are available within Hikashop. How convenient is that?


Our first project was a complex monster. But, Nicolas and Team were there for us every step of the way. I could not have asked for better.


Documentation is well done and complete. Their Forum is also a tremendous asset. If it has been tried, the solutions are there.

I used this to: We use Hikashop Business for a variety of ecommerce websites from very simple to complex order processes. Hikashop can do it all. Like others, it has the full order system built in. Or, you can add the product code within your articles/modules and customize everything. Perfect!

A great E-shop !!!

Funds of functionalities, and you can have all of you wishes within Hikashop.
+ integration with AcyMailing, AlphaUserPoints and more !!!

Ease of use

The basis are presents, and you can have your shop the way you would like very easily !


Great support !! 1 question = 1 answer.. who can say better ???


There is a very good documentation inside the component, and each buttons is really explained !! Great documentation !

I used this to: At first, I was looking for Virtuemart.. but for Joomla 3.3, it was not really ready. So, after somes searches and some exchanges with the Hika team, I tried Hikashop !! And very great indeed !!!
I love that shop !!!!


This is a very versatile shop extension with so many different functions I've barely needed to scratch the surface to achieve what I need

Ease of use

The extension is not difficult to use, however it will require a little patience, as there are lots of configuration options


Outstanding, quick response and very helpful


Excellent and very thorough

I used this to: All my ecommerce websites


The extension is great and offers a ton of features and well thought out functionality. I wish it had time limits for downloadable products.

Ease of use

There's naturally a learning curve with large extensions but Hikashop is very intuitive.


I asked for support for a valid code bug and it was fixed within 24 hours. And on a weekend. Very happy.


Documentation is pretty good. I found all the answers I needed when I searched. The forum was also helpful.

I used this to: I used this for a client's site and they are a fortune 50 company with some heavy requirements. Hikashop met 90% of my needs out of the box. I was able to write some additional plugins easy enough for the remaining client requirements and everything works well.
Owner's reply: Hi Mike,

Thank you for your review.
Note that you can set a time limit for the downloads in the Files section of the HikaShop configuration with the option "Download time limit". Hope this helps !

Perfect support

just perfect! with a support team very efficient and responsive.

Excellent !

Posted on 02 October 2014

The best I have seen. With the free edition you can already make unbelievable things : configure what you want, even the checkout process with drag & drop !

The support is really good and free too.

I have bought the business licence because I need it, but test yourself the free version, you will see how powerful it is !

But just think that you will need few hours to make the tour and configure it from A to Z.

Reaaly good job ! Thanks to the Hikari team :)

I purchased Hikashop Business as I was not happy with the other shopping carts that I have tried (currently having a valid commercial license for another shopping cart). Have now done two websites using Hikashop and I am very happy with the software. Took a bit of time to get used to the setup of various features and functionalities, but going through the user documentation combined with a great forum and excellent support from Nicolas and his team I have started to get the hang of how it works. I will most definitely recommend Hikashop.
