Orders Audit (Compare Orders From Ecom Platform to Orders Placed on Supplier Platform)

As you can see by reviewing the comparison chart – there are a ton of features and automations that Oberlo app simply does not offer, and those missing features in Oberlo 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 Automation Features that are crucial to running your business that they are just plain missing:

 

Auto Place Order Button

With Dropified, you can now select multiple orders and have them process in the background. We developed this feature to reduce the number of order windows open in AliExpress, and prevent anti-fraud software from flagging the user, inundating the business owner with Captcha, and potentially blocking the IP address of our members. No one has time for that.

Now when you click the button to place your order, and select auto place order, it will automatically go into a queue. You will see a popup confirmation or summary of your orders in queue. If there is a question mark, there was a problem that requires some attention (and may be in your variance mapping information).

The popup will list all orders that have been placed in the queue, and update you when they have completed (and moved on to the next order in the sequential list).

Oberlo does not offer this powerful, time-saving automation.

 

Auto Place Order for Bundled Products

While it appears that Oberlo offers the ability to create and sell Product Bundles, they don’t offer the ability to Auto Place Orders for those bundled sales.

That means users are going to have to figure out how to handle the orders and management of multiple Oberlo products suppliers and vendors across different product variations, which is extremely time consuming to do manually and very easy to mess up your customers orders.

Dropified customers, the savvy sellers they are, can create product bundles in just minutes from as many suppliers as they want, and with as many different variations as they want and handling order management in just a few simple clicks in just a few minutes or less!

Again, these are just a few but critical differences in the automation, time and money saving features that Dropified offers its users that Oberlo (sometimes mistakenly spelled Orbelo , Obelo , Overlo , Oblero , Oberloo or Obrelo ) simply does not offer.

Just these few highlighted automations and features represent hours and hours of time wasted each day doing manual tasks…

…tasks that Dropified automates in a few button clicks and in just minutes per day.

These automations can easily mean the difference between running a successful and growing business… or creating yet another job for yourself.

Dropified Vs. Oberlo Chrome Extension

Both Oberlo and Dropified offer Chrome extensions that allow you to find and import products into your eCommerce store.

One of the biggest differences between the two is that the Oberlo chrome extension only lets you import from AliExpress…

…while Dropified lets you import from a number of sites, including AliExpress, eBay, Alibaba, Amazon, Etsy, Walmart and dozens more sites.

This is a huge advantage to being able to import thousands of products from so many more sources…

…especially when you consider that this opens up being able to select U.S. vendors you can work with that will drop ship from within the U.S.

That means you can source and sell products from U.S. vendors that can ship products and have them to your U.S. customers in just days, and not weeks like it takes to ship from China.

Why Dropified Is The Smart Choice

At the end of the day, when you review the Feature Comparison between Oberlo vs Dropfied, 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.
