Oberlo has FAILED massively as a Shopify App. Do NOT use them as they have no consideration for those merchants using their service. Oberlo used to provide access to various suppliers that they had "verified". This allowed merchants to find suppliers in the USA as well as those providing quality products & services with very fast shipping. HOWEVER, Oberlo now ONLY uses AliExpress (which is mostly junk trinkets with ridiculously slow shipping & unresponsive suppliers). Therefore, merchants who used trusted suppliers through Oberlo no longer can & as a result Oberlo's actions will put merchants out of business. It's quite clear that Oberlo did not take it into consideration the tremendous adverse impact this "decision" will have to those merchants using its services utilizing Oberlo Suppliers or Verified Suppliers. When I contacted their support team all they could say is "we apologize for the inconvenience". This is beyond "inconvenience". Very disappointed is an understatement. BE WARNED - DO NOT ENTRUST YOUR BUSINESS IN THE HANDS OF OBERLO OR YOU WILL BE SCREWED!
Hello there, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I’m extremely sorry about the removal of Oberlo suppliers. While it may not feel like it, this decision was made with our merchant’s success in mind.
Aliexpress has thousands of suppliers and hundreds of thousands of products. While there may be products and suppliers that don’t meet your standard, there are many that might. Many Oberlo suppliers are also on Aliexpress. Additionally, you can use the Aliexpress filter to see products that ship from United States warehouses (just like with Oberlo suppliers).
If you need any help finding reliable suppliers or products, I would suggest checking out this help document (http://bit.ly/2S0duv2) that outlines exactly what to look for. I understand this may not be the solution you’d prefer, but I hope it’s an option. I’ll be sure to pass your feedback along to our team so they can see that this change is not simply an inconvenience, and has affected our merchants far beyond that. -Anna
I do not know what these people did but their platform changed they only have Alliexpress Chinese Junk I like their prior platform when you could choose from different suppliers I uninstalled and looking for a USA based manufacturer and supplier. My customers do not want cheap crap and they do not want to wait 30 days for there purchase yeah you can get merch at low cost but it is junk. Hopefully they will go back to there prior platform .
Hello, thank you for leaving us a review. I’m sorry about your negative experience using Oberlo while we are removing our suppliers. I can understand the fear and frustration of having to source from Aliexpress compared to Oberlo’s previous verified suppliers.
However, I assure you that this decision was made with our merchant’s businesses in mind. Even while Oberlo suppliers were available, most merchants were sourcing and finding success with Aliexpress products.
Similarly to Oberlo suppliers, you can source good-quality products from Aliexpress that have ePacket shipping available that takes 12-20 days. Here is a guide to help you identify good suppliers on Aliexpress (http://bit.ly/2S0duv2). I understand this may not be the solution you were looking for, but I hope it can be an option. Thank you again for taking the time to leave us a review! -Anna
The app wont let me pay, ive already imported over 300 products, waste of time. Dont use this shitty app.
Hello there. I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties paying. However, you do not need to pay to import 300 products. Please email our support at email@example.com so they can have a closer look and help you get this sorted! -Anna

This app makes me wonder whats goin on behind the scenes at Shopify. As hard as this app is pushed, and how little it delivers, I wonder if someone has a hand in developing this app. I cant fault them for the poor quality of products, but they really need to source some things from the USA, and regulate much more strictly on things that are junk. I've only had my personal friends willing to wait for a month and a half for the delivery of products. Suppliers using up a week of that to fulfill an order should not be considered for eligibility when you're trying to compete with amazon. Yes, there are U.S. warehouses, but the selection is so limited, it is abysmal. The only way I can describe this app is the fastest way to damage your store's reputation.
Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. I'm very sorry about your experiences finding quality suppliers. As suppliers are a third-party, we can not control how they run their business and when they ship their orders. In the future, I would suggest contacting them ahead of time and ordering samples to see exactly how long it takes. I apologize about not being able to provide you with this information sooner. -Anna

Like other users have mentioned, this app has no practical use if you're trying to operate any sort of respectable store. I simply cannot have my customers waiting a month to receive a product! Product selection as a result is not very trendy. In addition, it looks like this app has some serious data confidentiality issues. After I installed the app, I kept getting fake traffic from Pexgle- other dropshippers trying to spy on my products. Do yourself a favor and pass on Oberlo!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I'm extremely sorry about your experiences trying to start a dropshipping business. While ePacket shipping says it takes 12-25 days, we've found it's closer to 12-14. In regards to others spying on your store, that is not because of any information that Oberlo gives out. Our users privacy is one of our top concerns. Unfortunately, any ecommerce store that is public can be found online. If you would ever like to get some more insight or give Oberlo another chance, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to help however possible! -Anna
Perfect in every way except for the MAJOR fact that they don't have a captcha solver for AliExpress checkout... Seriously wtf. Fulfilling HUNDREDS of orders and having to enter a captcha code at every checkout is absolutely ridiculous. I recommend Dropified which did the tiny amount of work necessary to incorporate this feature.
Hi there, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I understand that running a business takes time, and that solving captchas manually is not an efficient use of it. I apologize that we do not currently have a solution in place for this.
We understand how valuable your time is and want to provide the most efficient tools to run your dropshipping business. I assure you we are aware of this and working on a solution. While it's not available just yet, a solution is on the way. Thank you for sharing your feedback and your continued patience! -Anna
it's many error. you need to check again if don't want it wrong name and address. many our orders was wrong until I check on My order
I'm incredibly sorry to hear that the Oberlo extension was transferring any incorrect information. As a business owner, I understand you're busy and having to double check every order is not possible.
However, this has not been reported to be a regular issue with our extension. In the future, should this ever happen again, please email us at email@example.com right away. Our support team can have a look and see what needs to be done to remedy the issue. Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to write a review! -Anna

It's 2019 and you still don't have decent suppliers for anywhere other than CHINA. No one wants to wait 2-6 weeks for delivery.
Also it seems to me the suppliers on there are just other dropshippers offering the same products as suppliers, just massively marked up.
Your choice whether to use them or not. I don't write reviews unless I feel they need to be written, so take it seriously.
