Oberlo Turns 2!

Today is a big milestone for Oberlo: we’re celebrating the company’s second birthday.

We started Oberlo two years ago with the five founding members in a small office in Vilnius, Lithuania. Today, we’ve grown to a team of more than 60 people across three different continents, and we’re focussed more than ever on defining the future of dropshipping.

Oberlo 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.

Over time, we realized that entrepreneurs across the globe shared a common problem — 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.

Since we launched Oberlo, we’ve seen people from all backgrounds start their first dropshipping business, which is so fulfilling to see.

There are currently 125,000 active Oberlo merchants, who have sold more than 100,000,000 products. Our growth is only possible because our merchants believe in Oberlo, so we’ll ensure that we never stop working towards improving our product, and repaying that faith.

This year we launched Oberlo Supply, a marketplace which enables merchants to source dropshipped products from vetted suppliers with ease. We’re working to bolster the Oberlo Supply 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 Supply products, and we’re excited to see this number skyrocket in the future.

We’ve spent the past two years working to make our vision into a reality, and we’ve loved every second of it. But the best is yet to come. The future of ecommerce is in our hands, let’s shape dropshipping together.

To everybody who has made Oberlo what it is today: thank you.

Happy dropshipping!

    Yeap! Congrats for Your 2 nd birthday! I just started a few week ago and I must say that I love what all of you have created with Oberlo. About Oberlo Suppliers I miss a bit more info about the number of sales and rating. Shipping time I find it very important, and Oberlo suppliers are not always the fastest. Anyway i can recomend Oberlo app to everybody out there! Thanks to all of you!
