Worldwide Brands and Salehoo
With Salehoo being such a popular directory, why would anyone look at Worldwide Brands – and would they be making a mistake to pay $249 for something that they can get for only $67?
Salehoo has been around since 2005 and as of 2018 it lists more than 2.5 million products from around 8,000 certified suppliers – including both wholesalers and drop shippers. Membership costs $67 per year and includes access to the directory, as well as some basic tutorials and a market research tool.
Worldwide Brands is very similar – it's a directory of about 8,000 certified drop shippers, liquidators and wholesalers too, but one key difference is that Worldwide Brands has many more products – over 16 million in total.
As well as this, Worldwide Brands is also more expensive with membership costing about $249, but that's for lifetime access and you get similar extras to Salehoo – such as a product research tool, forums and support.
So while Salehoo starts off cheaper and has millions of products, Worldwide Brands offers many more products at wholesale prices and also better long term value for money – as it has a one off, not annual, membership fee.
Worldwide Brands is certainly worth a second look, although Salehoo is a great directory of wholesalers and drop shippers as well.
