Import your products very easily – Oberlo Chrome Extension

Do you want to ease your Dropshipping service by using Oberlo Chrome Extension?


This post will guide you completely about this chrome extension.

You might be doing wonders in your dropshipping business, but to gain profits faster you will need to do the process faster.

Or if you are starting out and know a little thing about dropshipping then you might want to speed up the process, right?

Yeah, this business doesn’t give you wealth overnight for sure.

But, with some initial hard work, commitment and consistency will definitely pay off.

And so, if you are new to this, let us clear the concept of dropshipping in a few words.

So, it is a simple process of buying a product at cheap rates and selling it at a higher price. The difference is your profit or income.

As simple as that.

And yeah, before you say,  “oh my god, I have to first buy something before selling? What if I buy some stuff and it never gets sold out?”, this doesn’t happen in dropshipping.

You import some stuff to buy it. You just present it in front of your customers. And when they want to buy, they place an order to your website or ecommerce store and that order directly goes to the supplier and the product gets shipped from the supplier itself.

Yeah, that's easy.

No worry about keeping things or about shipping the product.

And when we start this business, there are a lot of things we do to promote the products and so we do not want to waste any time on some things.

Here this amazing extension from Oberlo comes which automates your journey.

But first,

And then you see a purple icon on your extension list.

This icon will appear purple if you are not using it.

And one sec, you might know this fact that you can’t add any extension on your mobile devices or ipads.

Let’s continue,

First log in to your aliexpress account and Oberlo account.

You are not able to import products from the aliexpress homepage or any supplier homepage.

But with this extension you can.

When you open it, the icon will turn blue.

Oberlo Chrome extension not working ?

Yeah there are a lot of complaints about the Oberlo chrome extension not working properly or not just opening at all.

First easy method would be to first remove it from the chrome extension list, restart your device and reinstall the extension again.

In most cases, the issue gets resolved with this easy process.

Some other problems are -

1.  Sometimes you by mistake log in to your oberlo account with customer id to check it out as a guest. But when you do this, aliexpress sends emails not to your email but to your customers’ email addresses. And that you want to avoid. To resolve this issue, log in to your oberlo buying account before starting the fulfillment process of oberlo.

2. Sometimes a page doesn’t load easily and takes a lot of time. In this case the product is out of stock or no longer available from the supplier. In this case, look for a different supplier for that product.

3. Sometimes you see a “matching order is not found” message. In this case you need to re-sync the order details to process the order.

Maybe we have missed some more issues, but don’t worry. We will not leave you like this.
