OppoStyle.com, one of the official online distributors of Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer OPPO Electronics, shut down in recent weeks after years of service. The eCommerce outlet was taken down at some point between early March and late April, though it's currently unclear when exactly did its manager Ascension International Trading decide to take it down. The last post on the shop's official Facebook page that was advertising the company's recent VOOC Flash Sale was dated March 9, implying that OppoStyle was still operational back then. None of the snapshots taken by numerous Internet archiving tools indicate that the distribution site was online any longer than that.
Ascension International Trading and OPPO Electronics made no official statements on the matter, so it's currently unclear why OppoStyle was shut down. The frequency of various sales offered by the website wasn't any higher in recent months than it was before, indicating that the Chinese firm wasn't looking to clear stock intended to be shipped to consumers. Due to that state of affairs, it's possible that Ascension International Trading is planning to either relaunch the website or debut an alternative online distribution channel for OPPO's devices at some point in the future, though the greeting message that now appears to all visitors of OppoStyle doesn't inspire confidence. Opening the website now simply prompts a message saying that the online shop has been closed and that all previous customers who purchased one or more devices through the website are able to contact after sales services according to the platform's policy.
Initially launched in 2013, OppoStyle was selling localized variants of smartphones made by OPPO Electronics for North America, Europe, and other markets. The Dongguan, China-based smartphone maker was previously treating the website as part of its official distribution network, though the company might have opted to find a different distribution partner. Likewise, Ascension International Trading might have shut down the website of its own volition due to internal problems seeing how the company's Amazon page has also been emptied as of this writing, indicating that the firm might be ceasing operations. An update on the situation might follow later this year.
