Today is a big milestone for Oberlo: we\u2019re celebrating the company\u2019s second birthday.\r\nWe started Oberlo two years ago with the five founding members in a small office in Vilnius, Lithuania. Today, we\u2019ve grown to a team of more than 60 people across three different continents, and we\u2019re focussed more than ever on defining the future of dropshipping.\r\n\r\nOberlo was originally created to solve issues we faced while running our own dropshipping business. We found that order fulfillment was a tedious, time-consuming process, so we created a tool that would automate everything. We realized that this tool could be helpful for many other entrepreneurs, and so Oberlo was born.\r\n\r\nOver time, we realized that entrepreneurs across the globe shared a common problem \u2014 they knew that they wanted to run their own store, but they didn't have any products to sell. We set out to solve this issue by expanding Oberlo into a platform which connects merchants with suppliers who ship products directly to customers.\r\nSince we launched Oberlo, we've seen people from all backgrounds start their first dropshipping business, which is so fulfilling to see.\r\nThere are currently 125,000 active Oberlo merchants, who have sold more than 100,000,000 products.\u00a0Our growth is only possible because our merchants believe in Oberlo, so we\u2019ll ensure that we never stop working towards improving our product, and repaying that faith.\r\nThis year we launched Oberlo Suppliers, a marketplace which enables merchants to source dropshipped products from vetted suppliers with ease. We\u2019re working to bolster the Oberlo Suppliers marketplace with more suppliers so we can provide our merchants with an even wider selection of products for their stores. Thousands of our merchants are already using Oberlo Supplier products, and we\u2019re excited to see this number skyrocket in the future.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWe\u2019ve spent the past two years working to make our vision into a reality, and we\u2019ve loved every second of it. But the best is yet to come. The future of ecommerce is in our hands, let\u2019s shape dropshipping together.\r\n\r\nTo everybody who has made Oberlo what it is today: thank you.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHappy dropshipping!\r\nAndrius and Tomas \u0160limas, Justas Galaburda, Marius Grau\u017einis and Donatas Pranck\u0117nas\r\nOberlo\u2019s Founding Team\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWant to learn more?\r\n\r\n \tHow I launched my eCommerce store in less than 30 minutes (with products)\r\n \tHow To Select Dropshipping Suppliers\r\n \tWhat Should You Sell Online?\r\n \t10 Online Stores to Use as Inspiration for Your First Store\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIs there anything else you\u2019d like to know more about and wish was included in this article?
