I like oberlo over most of the other dropship services. Here are my pros:
- It's really hassle free. The interface is easy and it connects to shopify super easily.
- The margins are good (if you pick your products right, but more on that in the cons).
- Huge selection. You can really get deep into niche offerings. Which again ties into the picking the right products.
- You're competing in offering with Alibaba Express which has good seo and better name recognition than my site and probably yours.
- Because you're competing against alibaba express and other dropshippers, it's reallly hard to find a product that will do well. You've got to go super niche and do a hell of a lot of marketing.
- Listings info is suss. Title and descriptions ALL have to be rewritten and reworked. It's a mess.
So yeah, I like it enough to give 4 stars because of convenience and low effort. But taking away one star because of competition and selection and product information. I wish i could give it 3.5 which is what it really deserves but I can't and i'm a nice guy so I'll round up.
Hey there! First off, you hit the nail on the head. Spot on review, and we wouldn't dispute it for a second. It sounds like you have a sound understanding of how the whole thing works. Margins are good IF, you find a smoking hot product. Listing information is hit and miss, UNLESS, you find suppliers with exemplary track records. All said that's the reality of dropshipping via AliExpress (Alibaba), and it doesn't differ regardless of which tool you use to import products. Competition is fierce and ultimately, it comes down to your marketing prowess. In the end, that is the real skillset (sounds like you know that already). And that is why it sounds like you're the perfect candidate for success! So keep it at it. The only difference between success and failure is how many times you can stomach failing! Also, please reach out to us for help when things get tough. We're ready to help you through sticking points! -Jasper

There is an issue with the app. Installs alright but the import plugin at the top is not showing at all on chrome. Can you fix this?
Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. It doesn't automatically show, you'll need to install via Google Chrome Extensions and then enable it. If it was once showing for you, you can troubleshoot it in our help docs in order to get it to work again. Issues are usually caused by a browser issue such as requiring an update or clearing the cache. Sorry to hear you're experiencing a challenge with it. Please don't hesitate to reach out so we can assist you further! 🙂 -Jasper
