Oberlo is a prominent dropshipping app with plans to shut down all operations in June 2022. Our previous Oberlo review spoke highly of the Shopify-exclusive dropshipping solution, but Shopify eventually purchase the app and made the decision to cease operations. Similar to many acquisitions in the tech space, Shopify seemed to have purchased Oberlo for several reasons, but primarily to offer a completely integrated dropshipping solution, while also combining the tech from Oberlo with tools they found more appealing.
After consideration, Shopify decided to utilize a third-party app called DSers as its primary dropshipping solution. We're not sure how much of the Oberlo tech was transferred over for the partnership, if at all, but one thing's certain: Oberlo is no more, and all previous Oberlo users must transfer over their accounts to DSers, or an alternative dropshipping app, in order to maintain some sort of dropshipping functionality.

Dropshipping is one of the most popular eCommerce fulfillment models in 2022, and it’s only predicted to continue expanding. Dropshipping is the fulfillment model for nearly one-third of online stores and is anticipated to achieve a CAGR of 28.8% from 2019 to 2025.
For the uninitiated, drop shipping enables new and established sellers alike to extend their product inventory without making any initial investments or storing bulky products in their own facilities.
Instead, manufacturing, warehousing, picking, packing, and shipping are all handled by third-party dropshipping suppliers. As such, you’re free to focus on selling products via your own online store and driving the customer service side of things.

If you’re looking to scale your Shopify store, increasing revenue is likely one of your key priorities. Of course, everybody loves bringing in more cash, but the question is: how can you earn more?
It’s well known that upsells are an excellent place to start. As much as 10-30% of all eCommerce revenue is generated through upsells. Furthermore, 60% of salespeople used upselling and cross-selling in 2021 as part of their sales strategy.
Whereas cross-selling encourages customers to increase their order value by adding other related products to their cart, upselling shows customers a better product version that costs a bit more. So, for example, you might advertise a larger size or a more premium finish at checkout for just a few dollars extra.
