As the top two directories of wholesalers and drop shippers, World Wide Brands and Salehoo are regularly reviewed and compared to one another. But what are the key differences between the two popular directories and is one really better than the other?
Salehoo vs Worldwide Brands – What's Similar?
Salehoo and Worldwide Brands are both directories of wholesalers, manufacturers, drop-shippers and liquidators – based in the United States and around the world. Both have about the same number of suppliers – 8,000 – as well as similar certification processes that every new supplier must pass to be included in their databases.
Both come with extras as well – such as training resources, market research tools, customer support and access to active forums.
The Big Differences
Worldwide Brands lists more than 16 million products compared to Salehoo's 1.6 million – that's ten times as many products on offer from Worldwide Brands as their nearest (and biggest) competitor.
Salehoo has an annual fee of $67 and Worldwide Brands has a one off fee of $299, but no more ongoing costs to pay for membership.
Which is Better?
Both Salehoo and Worldwide Brands are legitimate directories and valuable resources for anyone looking to find low cost suppliers – they both do what they claim to.
However, Worldwide Brands offers better value for money because it has many more products on offer and, while more expensive initially, is cheaper in the long term as there are no annual costs.
