Amazing component

Posted on 19 January 2015

If you need a simple e-shop, this component is the best you can find.

Ease of use

The basic configuration is very easy to understand and the more advanced features are easy to handle, but will need a little adaptation time


Great support,each questions are answered.


You can find a complete deocumentation inside the component.

I used this to: E-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 !

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.

Good extension

Posted on 10 September 2014

This extension is a reference for an ecommerce on Joomla, for small websites as well as the big ones.

The team is really reactive for all kind of questions.

I just want to say thanks guys for your work.

I have to submit this review for Hikashop for Business (paid version). As a user of Magento and Virtuemart, I just can't get over how much functionality is built into Hikashop. For a fraction of the cost of a full-featured Magento experience, Hikashop does everything you want - and more - for eCommerce. From filters to unlimited display options to complex SKU configurations. It does take a commitment to learn. Do expect to read the documentation and the forums, and do expect to play around with it. But once you understand the architecture and the logic, it really is brilliant. Technical support is good. They're not warm LOL - can be snippy - but they do provide excellent support and the product really does work.

I have been using VirtueMart for years and I recently switched to Hikashop for a new website. HS is powerful but overpriced. With the free edition, you quickly run into frustrating limitations. Purchasing the 'Essential' edition, at the cost of a hefty 50 Euros or $70, removes some but not all of these limitations. At that price, for example, you can't even fully customize notification emails such as adding your own logo. To remove all limitations (and do what VirtueMart allows you to do for free), you need to buy the "business" edition for 100 Euros or $140. Support has been quick and courteous. However, for the best value I recommend that you stick with VM if you can.

Great e-commerce
