I was using the Bundles app (which was sooo easy and worked great) until I realized it was not compatible with Oberlo and Aliexpress. Does anyone know an app to create bundles for dropshippers? So I can still continue fulfilling orders? It is a bit disappointing that there is no way for a dropshipper to create bundles
What is the limitation you have encountered with other apps? You could test out our bundling solution as you can build new products from the products you upload to your store and then when an order comes in we split the order into each component so can be processed by a supplier. The main think you need is the product data to be copied into your store product list.
The only issue I encountered is that none of the apps were compatible with Oberlo, meaning when an order came in I couldn't go through Oberlo then Aliexpress to purchase the inventory to send to the customer. I wouldn't mind checking your app if it works with Oberlo and helps to control inventory from there.
Yeah it would depend on the order lines so hopefully how we process it would work. In any case we can test it out and if there are issues the guys can take a look if there is a solution. Doesn't hut to try.
Just send me an email to email@example.com and I will get the team to either test with you or have a look internally.
Oberlo is actually pretty locked down and doesn't have an API to directly place orders. What you are trying to do is called multi-channel fulfillment. That means you are sourcing inventory from many different channels. Since Oberlo does not have an API, I would find a supplier and integrate with them directly. I built Openship to solve your exact issue. It allows you to connect to any supplier or platform (that has an API) and achieve multi channel fulfillment. If you want to use AliExpress without Oberlo, check out Zinc.io. They allow you to dropship from AliExpress directly without using Oberlo and we can integrate with Zinc.
Let me know if you have anymore questions.
