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.
Tried JCH, and wow!!! WOW!!! At first site went off and had to get my browser dns and got hosting staff to clear server dns, then started to add settings one at a time.
Am now down to 0.43 secs from initially 18secs!!!
I give this plugin a No. 1 rating in joomla 'To haves'
Thanks to the developer
