How do I get started?
Oberlo is an application, which allows you to easily import dropshipped products into a Shopify store and ship them directly to your customers - in only a few clicks. You can import and sell items that can be found on AliExpress.com website or Oberlo Supply Marketplace. Click on the links to see the assortment of the products.
This is how dropshipping with Oberlo app works:
A customer places an order in your Shopify store and you receive money to your payment gateway account (PayPal for example). Then, you have to use your personal credit card and purchase an item for your customer from the supplier, to be shipped directly to your customer.
Your profit will be the difference between the amount of money a customer paid in your Shopify store and the cost of the product you paid for the supplier.
As a dropshipper, you don't have to stock products yourself. You are just a liaison between your customers and the suppliers.

Set Up Oberlo
Before importing products to your store, you should set up your application. Go to the Oberlo settings page and follow the instructions there: set your Price Multiplier, decide what you want Oberlo to do when an AliExpress.com product runs out of stock, or when the inventory changes, and more.
