well... ive used in past with almost trouble free, but miss some features like others app offer.... like advanced price match, etc a lot of features that OBERLO since 3-4 years ago what does is just change layouts.... support always give some type of answers like templates without almost 0 information we need, also if you came from another app they do not help in import, you have to manually override each one by one... in 2021 its the solution??????? price rules dont work good, and still use the "multiplyer" ONLY!! after 3-4 years they cant change or add more option? like change price only if price raise... set % multiplyer, set the product price cost with Shipping!! yes this is a must for nowdays... so now only way i see is manully set prices each time they change! to be 100% safe!!. OBerlo and sohpify, come on guys you are better than this i think.....
Hi there! 👋 Thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback. I understand what you mean, and those are fantastic suggestions! I will make sure to pass it on to our development team. ✌️ The Auto Updates feature works as expected. However, delays happen as AliExpress pushes new inventory data out to Oberlo every 24-72 hours. With so many products, it can take some time to update across the entire platform. If you ever get an order while your supplier has that item out of stock, you can override products in existing orders with products in stock from other suppliers. Process steps are outlined here (https://bit.ly/3cn5aBz).
I would also want to apologize for the poor experience with our Support Team. That is not the standard we strive to achieve and how we want to be perceived. We've dropped the ball here, and for that, there's no excuse. We hope you might give Oberlo another chance. 😊 I wish you the best of luck with your eCommerce business, no matter which course you choose to use. 💪 -Iris

Poor Customer support also needs more advanced features. I contact their team about 4-5 days ago and no response.

horrible, I received my first order and I will have to cancel it because the app is not working properly. I cannot have access to AliExpress.

Nice looking App but bulk ordering takes forever. I switched to Shopmaster and the performance issimply at another level, much much faster and not processing the orders in Aliexpress one by one in front of your like Oberlo.

Here's where I am right now. First, I chose a product that in the notes says it's free shipping in the U.S. I reached out to the shop and asked why I was being charged shipping, and reached out to Oberlo. Neither gave me a reason why it says free shipping and it isn't. Have 3 orders with the same shop, of course I paid for them and received a message they're not available. They offered another similar product, but that's not what i presented to my customers. I did ask if it was the same price, but you're talking a 9 hour delay with messaging because China. I've requested the orders to be canceled. It will take 3-10 days to refund my money and I have to order from somewhere else to fulfill what I have. I have no clue how to order from a different supplier and mark my Oberlo orders as shipped, but I don't think I'll get any help in that department, either. Currently out $200 with no products, no response, and absolutely ZERO confidence that this is a viable system. The extra star I gave was for the fluidity of the system and product selection. But none of that matters when you can't get any of the products you've sold. I say try anywhere but here.
Hey, there! 👋 We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a detailed review! Sorry to hear you're having some trouble with the products being shipped. Normally if free shipping is an option you can select it when you're checking out on AliExpress. If you have a default shipping method selected it will automatically select that (even if it's a paid method). We also have a guide on what to do if your product isn't available from the supplier. It covers how to find a similar product from other suppliers, and fulfill those orders by using Oberlo. That's great you've already started the cancellation process for these orders. Shoot us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org with the order numbers you're referring to and our team will look into this for you. 🙂 -Rio
So far, I've made two sales through Oberlo, and on both of them, I had problems with the Ali Express suppliers. They are just not reliable, and they are damaging the reputation of my shop. I would recommend Oberlo to create a list of reliable Ali Express suppliers so it would be safer for us to do business using this app. As for my experience, I don't think installing Oberlo is advisable.
Hi! 👋 Thanks for taking time out of your day to leave us a review. Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with your current AliExpress suppliers. We'll definitely take that suggestion into account! In the meantime, we actually have some articles on how you can find reliable suppliers on AliExpress and research them to make sure they ship the products fast! Check out our help guides for how to do this, or send us an email at email@example.com. 🙂 -Rio
Usually Oberlo is a good service however today the service is not working and i couldn't import my products
Hey! 👋 I'm happy that you usually find the service great! We had an issue earlier regarding app access, but it's been fixed and you can use the app with no problems now! Sorry for the inconvenience. 🙂 -Rio

This app works as it should; however, it's connected to AliExpress, which is a shot in the dark. I understand that AliExpress is a platform with various storefronts for customers of all sorts. Still, it works, and it doesn't. I've had some lost orders, which makes my business look terrible. Items are slow for delivery, and things are lost continuously or untrackable. It's best to have the product at home and send it out with a FedEx, USPS, Etc., with a tracking number so that you know where your sent items are going and delivered.
Hello there! Thanks so much for your review - we always appreciate getting feedback as it helps us improve as quickly as possible where it matters the most for our merchants. I completely understand where you’re coming from regarding the shipping process and time when dropshipping from AliExpress, particularly from China suppliers. While this is something we are unable to control we have a great set of guides and tutorials on how to overcome and alternatively position the long shipping wait with your customers. This one is my personal favourite - (https://bit.ly/2W31gGr).👍
Another thing that might interest you is AliExpress does offer a large variety of dropshipping products from their warehouses outside of China which may significantly reduce shipping times.
No matter what country, always make sure to find a reliable supplier with great feedback in most aspects (shipping time, product quality, customer support etc). It’s best to aim for a 4.5 rating and above.
I’m really happy you know the value Oberlo adds to your business and I want you to make the most out of it. Our team enjoys helping any business as if it’s our own so you can always contact our Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org. They'll be more than happy to help you with anything. Stay relentless! 😊 - Iris
Their getting worse everyday, their customer service is a total joke. And their software seems to get more outdated as time passes, really sad. They should be ashamed of themselves.
Hi There. Thank you for leaving a review for us and I'm sorry to hear you didn't have a great experience with Oberlo. That is not how we want our merchants to feel. If there is any issue you're dealing with please write our support team at email@example.com. I know they would be happy to help you. Also feel free to leave a comment on any of our social media platforms to have a conversation with us and our community members. Hope to talk more soon. 😀 -Kitana
