@sondramonique Hey there!
Oberlo works exclusively only with Shopify, therefore, having an account there is a must to use Oberlo.
Also, since our acquisition of Shopify, Oberlo is only supported with Shopify - there is no possibility to connect it to other platforms.
However, I would suggest you to give it a try! Keep in mind that Oberlo as well as Shopify gurus are always there to help you with every step in your way!
