Hi guys,

I got an email suggesting the migration from Oberlo to DSers. Is that true that Oberlo is shutting down? What is the best alternative?

Hey @Debbie19,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm happy to provide some insight to the Oberlo App, to get this resolved. To provide some context, the decision to sunset Oberlo was based on various factors including doing what's in the best interest of our merchants. It's our top priority to provide a more optimal dropshipping solution and recommend checking out our Oberlo App Sunset FAQ Page for more information. 

Oberlo has chosen to partner with DSers, offering a seamless migration for anyone previously using the app. DSers has all the features you need to continue to grow your business including, offering a tight integration with AliExpress, provides bulk order fulfillment, and has more than 150k merchants. It's important to note the last day to access Oberlo will be June 15th, 2022 and can locate the steps to migrate within the FAQ Page

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!

Yes, I switched over to DSers and it's atrocious. I will try my best to find a good alternative to Oberlo bc it was so user friendly. DSers is a joke

Hey Debbie, yes I see that it is true from Shopify's communications... if you are interested in evaluating your options, I could show you Dropified! Let me know what you think.

yeah, I saw DSers being suggested too. Not sure what's up with that. I think there are better options.
Dropified is quite robust

Well, I'm on a free plan in DSers. It impresses me a lot due to its multiple advanced features and 24/7 customer service. I have saved a lot of time, energy and resources by using the app. As far as I'm concerned, it does help dropshippers with their business.

Hello Debbie!

 

Oberlo is shutting completely down on 15 of June. If you are looking for different alternatives, I can run you through Yakkyofy! 

Private labeling, sample evaluation, high quality images and 360 videos, and AR files for Shopify - all of that might be a great fit to scale your business 🙂

I've already "migrated" to DSers a week ago & can honestly say...
The shutting down of OBERLO is probably the WORST decision that Shopify has made!!
Oberlo was a Brilliant app & platform and integrated so well with the Shopify store.
DSers on the other hand is TERRIBLE!!!
It has far less feature that Oberlo had between Alixpress & the store, and has a really bad user interface!
Oberlo was the main reason most of us got into Shopify in the first place as it made everything so easy.
I've been massively frustrated for the past few days trying to get DSers to do the same things I did on Oberlo.
TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE Decision!!!
Very disappointed!
I really hope that someone buys Oberlo from Shopify & re-launches it in the future!

Having used DSers for weeks, I am disappointed with them. I regret that I was unsatisfied while using Oberlo, thinking some places need improvement. However, I missed Oberlo so much after shifting to DSers.
