We introduced Oberlo Suppliers to help entrepreneurs like you to find trustworthy dropshipping suppliers within Oberlo. In part, this mission was successful. Some entrepreneurs were successful working with our hand-picked suppliers. But most Oberlo merchants continued to import products from other suppliers.
This created a dilemma. We spent a lot of time creating a marketplace that most entrepreneurs didn’t need – and it stopped us from improving a platform that entrepreneurs already loved.
That’s why we have decided to remove Oberlo Supplier and Oberlo Verified Supplier products from Oberlo on July 15th, 2019.
This year, we will focus all of our attention on improving Oberlo. We want to build the features you have told us will make Oberlo better, and we want to build them fast. More than ever, we are committed to helping you build – and scale – sustainable businesses.
