I could not use Shopify without Oberlo, PERIOD! In fact I found Oberlo just before I was ready to create something similar of my own, in order to automate as much of the process as possible. Thankfully there was no need to do that, since Oberlo already not only existed, but was doing many things that I wanted to have in my automation of Shopify. I've read some negative reviews and truly think these are either clueless noobs or competitors, although I haven't found a plugin and platform that comes even close to what Oberlo does. It does miss a few things that I would like to have in terms of usability and user interface, but the overall experience is so good, that I will not be surprised if Shopify actually buys Oberlo in the future and merges it in the backend. It is THAT seamless. I frequently talk with their customer support, and they are very helpful and provide lots of tips. Of course don't expect with so many thousands of people using the tool to get an answer the very next minute (although I do) but I have to say that all the negative things I've read are simply BS. I buy from Aliexpress with my own affiliate link, and not only Oberlo doesn't get the commission, but they've even got to the length to help me set it up, and I've seen the commissions already in my Paypal account. There are very few things that I would add, mostly in terms of usability like having a list view, and some other features that I've already talked about with them, and I'm pretty sure they will add them soon. If you take software and business automation seriously and have common sense to not believe some bozo whiners in the comments, do your self a favor and use Oberlo as soon as you setup your store. I use the expensive subscription since we have over 10,000 products and its worth every penny. Trust me, I'm in the business for almost 3 decades and a developer. You can't pay for such tool and the support behind it. Go ahead and try to build some serious business automation and see how much it costs. Surely they can do better as they grow along with Shopify, but I challenge you to go back a decade and see how crappy all the e-commerce software solutions were back then. We are very close to automate EVERYTHING in our process and our business in general, and Oberlo is a major part of that. If you are still doing a bunch of manual work in your e-commerce website, you are not taking your time seriously. Use money, people and automation to save your time, otherwise you are not a business person, but an employee of a job that you've created just to fool your self that you don't have a boss. The first step for freedom comes with a business that runs without YOU. That's what Oberlo does for me, to the extend that it can so far, as part of my overall strategy to be free.
I have been using Oberlo since June/July and so far it was great and super easy to use! However, when I finally received some orders, Oberlo didn't seem to fully sync with Shopify. Perfect example, if you offer a discount in Shopify, it does not discount it in Oberlo. You will have to pay the difference out of pocket. If you make this mistake like I did, then all you will get is an apology....maybe. Also, My current situation is I received 2 orders within 24-48 from the same person. One of the orders recently processed and shipped within the 2-4 Day time window. Great! I was excited, I felt like everything was going fine. I've been patiently waiting and monitoring my Oberlo Dashboard to see if my second order has processed and to my surprise, it has not been touched. It has now been 6 days and the order is paid but has not been fulfilled. I decided to contact support (There is no phone support) through email and I can not get a reply. I contacted Shopify and they couldn't even get a reply from Oberlo. Shopify told me to look on Ali Express to find my orders and to contact the supplier but none of my orders appear on Ali Express and the supplier that I have purchased from (APEX TRADING) doesn't even exist. They don't even exist on AliBaba. The only solution that the Shopify Guru could give me was to wait until Monday and if my order haven't shipped, cancel the order and refund my customer! This is terrible and I have to give my trusting customers information that I don't even have!
I would not recommend using Oberlo. First, I was ordering on Ali Express through Oberlo and my account was locked. Oberlo should warn people that this will happen, so i stopped using Ali Express. I then decided to use only Oberlo Supply suppliers and products as they say they "vet" the products for quality, etc. The quality of the shirts were horrible! Strings hanging off of the shirts and VERY VERY thin material. Next, the shipping is HORRIBLE!!! I have had tracking numbers expire, orders cancelled on me without any notice of the cancellation and it's taking around 3+ weeks for products to be delivered. We way $2 for ePacket delivery and products take nearly a month to arrive. I have gotten FREE ePacket delivery using DHGate and even Ali Express when I was using it and the products arrived in less than 2 weeks! I think Oberlo Supply is misleading and Oberlo does not hold their suppliers accountable. I would not recommend this app at all. If I could give a 0 star rating I would
I really like the way that the chrome extension made it extremely easy to import products from Ali Express. I really don't have any complaints about the app or the service provided by Oberlo. My problem was that after using Oberlo to add products to my store, I got a message from Shopify payments saying that because my products were sourced from China, they were going to put a 25% hold on all purchases because of issues with charge backs from customers purchasing items from China. They mentioned that US customers expect fast shipping times and the 2 weeks or longer for products to arrive result in several orders being refunded. I planned on making it very clear what the expectations for shipping should be, but the 25% hold was not something I wanted to deal with. So, I ended up removing the app and sourcing from only US sellers. Again, the app is great, but unfortunately unusable for my situation. It's not Oberlo's fault and I'm sorry it didn't work out.
After using Oberlo for almost four months, I'm updating my review. While I've had sales, I've also had to order duplicates of products during Chinese New Year, when factories shut down. I ordered hats, electric lighters, clothes, etc off of ebay during Chinese New Year. So I paid double for the product to keep customers happy. I requested the orders be cancelled on AliExpress and the factories disregarded and sent the product anyway. None of this was Oberlo's fault, but they do not do enough to let drop shippers know just how bad the Chinese New Year is for drop ship sellers. It last three weeks. They shut down their entire post office in China one week before CNY, so you aren't getting anything shipped for a month. Customers don't understand that. So my customers during CNY got two of everything they ordered.
