Main Information

If you use one of our commercial versions, you will be able to enter the name and description in different languages. This feature requires to have joomfish installed and can be activated in the configuration page, in the display tab. The languages available will be the ones in joomfish. If you don't enter something for a translation, it will just use the default information in the Main information tab instead. After you click on save or apply an additional publish icon will appear next to the fields where you entered something in the languages tabs so that you can easily enable or disable them. The default publish status can also be changed in the configuration page of HikaShop.

Generic configuration

  • Published : If a shipping method is published it means that it can be used by your customers during the checkout.
  • Images : You can click on the edit icon to select one or several images to display next to the name of the shipping method during the checkout process. Those images are stored in the folder media/com_hikashop/images/shipping so you can easily add more of them by uploading your images to this folder via FTP.
  • Price : The price set for the shipping method.
  • Percentage : Additionally to the price of the field above, you can also set here a percentage of the total of the order's products. The result amount will be added to the price so that you can have a fix minimum price and a percentage fee on top of it.
  • Product Tax category : You can apply taxes on the shipping price. That really depends on the laws of your country and/or state. For more information on that you should seek advice at your local tax office.
  • Use the prices per product: With that option, you can activate the price per product system for that shipping method. Two things will happen:
    • You will get a "Price per product" option on that same screen where you will be able to configure a fixed shipping price for each product added to the cart which will be summed up and added to the main price of the shipping method.
    • If you have activated the "HikaShop Shipping manual - Prices per product" plugin via the plugin manager of Joomla, you will be able to configure prices for that shipping method for each one of your products on their edition page
  • Override shipping address: Allow you to set a default address instead of the user address, useful if you create a "Pick up" method.
