World Wide Brands and Salehoo
Both are good directories, but what separates Worldwide Brands and Salehoo – and most importantly, as they are both quite expensive, is one more useful than the other?
There are of course similarities between Salehoo and Worldwide Brands – they are both directories of wholesalers and drop shippers, both have about 8,000 suppliers listed, both include tools, forums and customer support. Also, it's important to note, that both only list reputable suppliers – having researched and certified all 8,000+ before listing them.
However, there are some big differences too – mainly the cost of membership and the number of products that are available to buy at wholesale prices.
Salehoo has about 2.5 million products in it's searchable database, but Worldwide Brands has many more – over 16 million as of July 2018. This means that you are much more likely to find what you are looking for in Worldwide Brands.
The other key difference is the price; Worldwide Brands is the most expensive at $299 for lifetime membership while Salehoo costs only $67 (per year).
Can Worldwide Brands justify the higher price though? In my opinion the answer is yes – Worldwide Brands has many more products from it's suppliers than Salehoo and on a per product basis that means it's better value for money. However, it's expensive – so only join Worldwide Brands if you can afford it and if not then Salehoo is a great alternative.
