The Migration of Orders
DSers will migrate orders from Oberlo accounts that were placed in the past two months. For a complete sync of all your order history, contact DSers support.
Oberlo doesn’t sort orders directly into distinct groups. DSes sorts orders in different tabs based upon AliExpress and Shopify order statuses, as illustrated below.
The Migration of Products
DSers will migrate their Oberlo Import list and product during this operation. This could be slow if you have a lot of data.
During this stage, the Oberlo Import List product data will be converted perfectly to DSers Isport List.
For the following reasons, Oberlo may display a different number of products on your Import List than Oberlo.
1) DSers can move out-of-stock items but not AliExpress items that aren’t found.
2) You may see Oberlo and DSers products if you transfer your data into an existing DSers account. This depends on your data reference settings. Your products will be added tags such as From DSers and From Oberlo to the Import List so that you can filter the products between the two applications.
Data migration will be done for Oberlo Products menu. The Shopify products will be moved to DSers along with variant mappings and alternate suppliers.
Keep in mind that DSers will default to Standard mapping for your variant mapping. You can change to another mapping method depending on your requirements.
You may find that certain products are not mapped after transferring. This could be due to AliExpress products not being found or taken down. This type of goods can be eliminated by selecting the Unmapped Products option.
The Migration of Plan
During the plan migration, DSers will create a plan that matches your existing Oberlo subscription.
Oberlo Pro is no longer available. However, existing Pro users will be migrated to the DSers Pro plan.
After the migration is completed, DSers will default back to their Custom Basic or Basic plan. After migrating, you must activate the DSers Advanced/Pro Plan manually to continue data and advanced features in the Oberlo Boss/Pro plans. You will also be able to enjoy additional DSers Advanced/Pro capabilities.
