Hikashop product insertion/translation plugins are functionalities which will allow you to display your Hikashop products through your Joomla articles. By this way, you’ll be able to create Joomla articles about your “favorite/most popular/..” products and easily display them.

Hikashop product insertion: This plugin will be used through your Article creation page (“Control panel->Article Manager->’Your article’”) with the “Product” button. This “Product” button enables you to add “Product(s) TAG” to your article.
