3. Type in your Shopify store URL.

4. Click Connect.

Create a new Shopify store and connect it

If you don’t have a Shopify store yet, then you can create one during the connection process in Oberlo. Once your store is created, you can connect it to Oberlo.

Follow these steps to create an account, and connect it to Oberlo:

1. From your Oberlo admin, click Create or connect a store.

2. From the popup window, click No, I don’t have a store yet.

3. Click Create your Shopify store. You will be redirected to a new page outside of Oberlo where you can sign up for a 14-day free trial of Shopify.

5. From your Oberlo admin, click Create or connect a store.

6. Click Yes, I have a store.

7. Type in your new Shopify store URL.

8. Click Connect.

9. You will then be prompted to install the Oberlo app into your Shopify store. Click Install app to complete the process.

Issues connecting the store

If you try to connect your existing store, but receive an error message stating “This shop is already assigned to Oberlo”, then it means that your Shopify store is already connected to Oberlo.

If this is the case, then it means that you have 2 separate Oberlo accounts:

  • One Oberlo account that is already connected to Shopify
  • One Oberlo account that is not connected to Shopify

Once an Oberlo account has been connected to a Shopify store, it is not possible to connect it to a different Shopify store. You will need to proceed with the Oberlo account that is already connected to Shopify.

To make sure you use the Oberlo account that is connected to your Shopify store, log into it from the Apps page in your Shopify admin. Login details are not needed when logging in through here.

After logging in, you can set up an email and password. Then, you can log into Oberlo through app.oberlo.com/login, without logging into Shopify first.
