Is Oberlo Available on Shopify Lite? This post is outdated

I am looking to sell on Facebook or my own website.

The thing is, is Oberlo or other apps available in the Lite version?

What payment options does the Lite version allow?

Hey, Ron!

My name is Ava, I’m one of Shopify’s Gurus and I’m here to help :)

The Shopify Lite subscription is compatible with the Oberlo app and products. This means items from both Oberlo Supply and AliExpress are eligible to be used on this plan. 

All you need to do is import products through the Oberlo app to ensure they are in sync. Imported items can be used in the Facebook sales channel and with the buy button function, provided the third party site supports the integration. 

You can have a look at Oberlo's guide on selling with the Shopify Lite plan here for more info.

In order to accept credit/debit card payments from your customers at the checkout, you would need to use a payment gateway. You can set up an account with the payment gateway, then when a customer orders a product for you, the payment gateway will take the money from the customer, process it, then deposit it into your bank account.

Oberlo would work the same as any other app, it will work with any gateway that your country has a Shopify integration with!

If you go to https://www.shopify.com/payment-gateways you can see a list of different countries there to choose from. If you can't see your country on the list, you can just type it at the end of the URL! So for example, if you were based in France and wanted to see your gateways you would type - https://www.shopify.com/payment-gateways/france - or if you were in South Africa you would type https://www.shopify.com/payment-gateways/south-africa.

We have a guide here on how to set up your payment gateway in the Shopify admin section.

Let me know if you have any more questions, happy to help!

Hey again, Ron!

Great question.

With all Shopify plans, you would not be limited on the number of products you can list on your store. All Shopify subscription plans come with an unlimited amount of products!

However, Oberlo does have limitations on the number of products you can sync from their app, depending on the plan you choose.
You can take a look at Oberlo's pricing page here.

With the starter plan (which is free), you can upload 500 products per month, and fulfill 50 orders per month. If you would like more products/order fulfillment than what is offered on the Starter plan, you would need to upgrade to the Basic or Pro plan.

I'm sure you can reach out to Oberlo's support for more info on their plans! 

Let me know if that works for you :)
