Questions About Wholesalers and Worldwide Brands

With thousands of suppliers and millions of products, Worldwide Brands is the largest directory of certified wholesalers and drop shippers on the Internet.  As a result there are many reviews online, but not as many 'Q&A' articles – so that's what I'm posting here today.

Question: Why is Worldwide Brands more expensive than Salehoo?

Answer:

Technically this is true, but only initially – Worldwide Brands has a lifetime membership fee of $299 and Salehoo costs $67.  After five years of membership Salehoo works out to be more expensive – at $335, but before that it's Worldwide Brands.

The reason for the price difference though is the scale of the directories – Salehoo lists about 1.6 million products from it's suppliers, while Worldwide Brands offers more than ten times that number at 16 million.

Question: Are the suppliers in Worldwide Brands and Salehoo guaranteed to be reliable?

Answer:

In both cases the answer is yes.  Both Salehoo and Worldwide Brands research their suppliers before adding them to their directories – and claim all suppliers are certified, or at least screened.

There is a slight difference though – and it's the fact that Worldwide Brands does more in depth research than Salehoo does, including visiting the offices and warehouses of applicant suppliers and placing test orders to check their reliability.
