Irritating. That's the only word that comes to mind when I think of this app. Trying to navigate through the different categories is harder than it needs to be. For example, my shop sells men's clothing. There is a category for clothing which includes all genders and then there is a category for men which is just a bunch of random stuff. I was looking for an alternate to Oberlo because the shipping times from China are obnoxious, but I noticed that the shipping times for the clothes on Spocket are pretty much the same, but the prices were higher. So I will continue to look elsewhere. This app might be good for some niches and people who like to scroll through pages of unrelated items, but not me.
I would give this app N0 stars if possible. I'm just starting a new online shop and because of this company's major lack of communication and priorities, my store's reputation is being jeapordized. It's been almost 1 week since I've tried to have an order fulfilled and after simply rquesting a tracking number or just a simple response at all, I've only received a couple worthless responses... NO TRACKING # or even a status update on the order. Trying to communicate with this company is nearly impossible because it's so rare to even get a single reply even though they say "usually replies within 2 hours" LOL! Yeah, right... more like you'll be lucky if they even reply at all and if they do, it's 2 days later. One of the employees told me that they are fulfilling hundreds of orders and that's why it's taking long. That's such a sorry, unprofessional excuse and that alone lets me know that my business means absolutely NOTHING and therefore not a priority. I've tried contacting the developer of Spocket, no reply.... SCAM, SCAM, SCAM. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS APP!
Don't ever use this app. I'm having terrible experience from these guys. I got charged for not using this app. When I talk to them about it, they told me to refund the amount but later they denied. They are here to steal your hard earned money with a stupid app.
Very limited product line, with very high prices. Each category consists of 1-3 pages of unbranded overpriced products. Requires account setup to view disappointing product line.
For Our Tomorrow
They request a 5 star review with the promise for some free service. Then they give you NOTHING!!!
had a few orders, but i am unable to view my orders under this app. page keeps loading and no matter how much you refresh page it wont allow me to view my orders. I had high hope for this page. they have good things to sell.. but app is defective...
I think its a waste of time and amateur to the fullest. Ive searched everything from belt to ieans to t-shirts and every single page it says ive reached the end of the products. they have under 100 items that make no point. The support and response time is horrible. I emIled friday and just literally got a response 10 min agao. iTs now 8am. Dont do it its a waste of time and energy.
This app is still under development and needs work. It is unable to delete products from the store. It does have better product descriptions up front. I would feel more comfortable if the plan options included the $0.00/month for 25 items but this may only be a promotional gimmick. Another option that is needed is the ability to delete a vendor's account. At this point it seems that there is no clear way to be sure your account has been terminated.
The idea is great just implemented poorly, no one wants to pay $25.00 shipping on a $15.00 item. The prices are high and the shipping even higher, until these two things improve I would not suggest it for any new store or any store that wants to deliver good prices like dropshipping is supposed to do.

Update 2: I am lowering to 1 star after sale experience
Update 1: I am updating my review lower for these reasons
A sale of a product that was listed as shipping from Canada was actually shipped from China and never reached the customer. The first issue is that if the source was correctly specified, we could have kept the customer informed of the timelines. Second issue is that there was a chargeback because the customer did not receive the product, which happens once in a while for China shipments. Spocket team was not able to do anything or refund the product cost. So we lost both ways, one to the customer for non receipt chargeback, and also the payment to Spocket. Since they have no ownership, and we cant talk to the product seller directly to resolve issues, it takes forever and this app is a waste of time and money. Just use Oberlo or other China product interfaces.
1. Depth of product offerings are low for my industry. However it may be good for other shops so no harm in trying out
2. The margins appear good, but if you do a deep search you will find that many products are available at lower retail than suggested. It may be good to start with, but eventually you will be tempted to move out of the app and build your own relationships with wholesale companies just to be competitive in the market, let alone save the monthly cost - always look at annual outflow of an app cost even if it looks fine on monthly basis.
3. Proves review counts and ratings do not paint the true picture. In this case you get a free month if you give a 5 star rating, so most people who install will give a 5 star rating in the first few days itself to get the free month, which leads to a ton of reviews done by people who have not experimented with the app, products and prices.
4. Having said that the app itself works fine, if they can sign up more wholesalers, avoid double dipping and reduce their margin on the products and rely on the monthly fee they may become competitive
I will be removing this app.
Just installed. First look seems fine. Tried importing 1 product and it went though easily. Let me test how it works and depth of product offerings before leaving a better review.
