Oberlo is only compatible with the Shopify platform. Oberlo does not support any other ecommerce platforms. If you don’t have a Shopify store created yet, then you can sign up for a free Shopify 14-day trial.


Shopify Sales Channels

You can use Shopify to sell products using many sales channels, such as Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger. Each sales channel works in different ways and might have specific requirements.

If you want to sell on eBay or Amazon, then make sure to read through their dropshipping policies first.


Using Oberlo on third-party ecommerce platforms, websites, and blogs

A Shopify store is necessary to use Oberlo, but you can still dropship with Oberlo on your third-party ecommerce platforms, websites, and blogs using Shopify’s Buy Button sales channel.

The Buy Button allows you to embed products, collections, and a checkout onto your third-party website. The Buy Button can show pictures, descriptions, and prices. Your customers can purchase products without leaving your website. When you receive an order for that product, the order populates into your Shopify admin. Then, you can place the order with your supplier using Oberlo.

The Buy Button sales channel is included in all Shopify subscription plans. To use the Buy Button on your existing website or blog, you will need access to the website’s HTML code.
