Well, let’s look at how Doba dropshipping is set up and if they’re a good fit for what you’re looking for in a dropship business.

As you can see by reviewing the comparison chart – there are a ton of features that Doba simply does not offer, and those missing features will cost you a LOT of time in terms of manual process, and ultimately cost you a lot of money in terms of lost productivity and/or hiring people to run those tasks for you.

Here are a few key Features that are crucial to running your business that they are just plain missing:

One critical thing we noticed as we reviewed the pricing they offer you as a Doba user on various items – their Doba member price was higher than you’ll find on sites like Amazon.

For example, this Vivitar scope they feature as a Hot Item is currently offered to Doba members at $61, but is being sold on Amazon currently at $44.68… and that’s hardly a rare example. That means they are not only NOT competitive on pricing, they are actually higher than you can get easily elsewhere at Retail Price.

If that wasn’t a deal killer already, let’s look at how our features compare:

Supplier Product Inventory Alerts

The good news is that Doba pre-screens and pre-selects the inventory available for you to sell. That means they’ve done a lot of hard work to identify good products.

One thing you’ll find though is that the suppliers they connect you with have really low inventory levels, many with under 100 items in stock at any given time. That may be fine if you sell a few products at a time, but the moment you start selling a lot of one item, you may very well run out of inventory and your sales flow is now gone… and you won’t know how long until it’s back in stock.

The fact is, it’s not uncommon for Dropified users to sell hundreds of the same items per DAY… and that would mean they are out of inventory that day too.

This also goes for other sellers using Doba – if they hit a strong sales streak on those items, the inventory will be gone quickly before you ever had the chance to sell them too. It’s really hard to grow and scale a business like this.

Customer Support

One other big drawback to using Doba is the ability to get help when you need it. They only offer support by email on their low level plan, chat support at the next level and phone support at their $249 level, which means quick and reliable support is only offered to their higher level customers.

At Dropified, we offer the same great customer service options to all of our customers, whether by email, support desk, Slack group or phone. Your success is our priority, and our team is here to help you succeed at any level.

Why Dropified Is The Smart Choice

At the end of the day, when you review the Feature Comparison between Dropfied and Doba, it would take a lot more time and space here to highlight all the features we have to automate your business that they are just simply missing…

…and all of those missing features add up really quickly in terms of wasted time having to do everything manually…

…and all the money you are LOSING because you’re too busy getting bogged down in creating more jobs for yourself or your staff – instead of being focused on revenue generating activities.

So, if you’re serious about starting and growing your eCommerce business the right way from the beginning through automating almost every aspect of your drop shipping business…

…look no further than Dropified.

Amazing app, loads of features over Oberlo and a customer service team that will actually work with you in real-time to fix any issues you might have. Thank you Kevin for your help!

Honestly I don't know how anyone could live without Dropified. Oberlo is not free if you get more that 50 sales a month and Dropified has WAY more features. I switched in a heartbeat and I will NEVER go back.
