I've got very annoying problem with oberlo when I'm importing products to my shopify store. I'll upload the pictures to better understanding.
As you can see the product on aliexpress cost 9.31-9.44 depends of the "ships from" location but when I import the product to oberlo, it shows the product price at 19.77 which is forcing me to put way higher price in my shopify store to have any profit. Some products are in the same price but most of them oberlo shows at double price, sometimes even triple. I don't know what to do because in this case as I can't have products on that high prices. I've sent a message to oberlo but unfortunately there is no answer during last 24 hours, so I want to try here as this problem, the product prices deleys my shopify opening.
Thank you very much for any help!
Have a good day!
Yes, it is happening the same to me, please someone from Shopify or Oberlo can you please explain why aren't you showing the same prices we show in AliExpress? for me, a product which is $22,00 in Aliexpress is showing as it would be $33,00 it is unbelievable... Please we ask for support on this as soon as possible!
Am facing the below issues with Oberlo and things are not getting solved. This is a big risk on the business:
1- Importing wrong cost that can reach to double the cost of Aliexpress in many products to an extent i cannot count
2- Bulk ordering does not work properly at all!!! When i place an order for 15 items for example, and the cart has 15, at the time of payment it shows me 5 items only with the cost of 5 and i have no clue where the other goes. I tried all troubleshooting they suggested by none worked.
3- Customer service is very slowwwwww
I think am now aware of the error in Oberlo that results in change of price:
1) Oberlo does not apply automated discount codes from supplier, sometimes supplier provide an automatic code in their item other than the "New Buyer Code" and this code will not be applied, and this will result in having a higher cost than actual. No solution to this yet.
2) Oberlo reads the product price on a default delivering location of USA and with the USD currency. Am facing this issues where am selling my products for a country other than USA, and the product cost itself is different if you ship to USA or another country, but Oberlo will only import the cost considering item destination USA. Sometimes it decreases and in others it increase. This is very tricky and risky. No solution to this yet.
3) There is a gap of 24 - 72 hours for the updates between Aliexpress and Oberlo.
Wanted to share this information, and give you some answers after thorough analysis
