With so many long and detailed reviews of Salehoo and Worldwide Brands, many by enthusiastic affiliates, how can you really tell which of the two directories is the most useful?
The answer is simple – just ask yourself which is the cheaperst and has the most wholesale products. As most of the other aspects of each directory are similar – they are both international, both only list certified suppliers, etc. – these really are the only differentiating points.
Worldwide Brands is a directory of about 8,000 certified drop shippers and wholesalers and from these there are about 16 million products listed for sale. Membership to Worldwide Brands costs $249, and that's for lifetime membership – there are no annual fees.
Salehoo also has about 8,000 suppliers (both drop shippers and wholesalers) but lists significantly fewer products from them – only 2.5 million compared to 16 million in World Wide Brands.
Salehoo costs $67 per year – this is cheaper, but only at first. After about four years of membership, Salehoo works out to be more expensive than Worldwide Brands – so the cost of membership depends upon how long you intend to remain a member.
In the long term, Worldwide Brands offers better value for money – it has more products and although initially more expensive it's cheaper if you intend to use it for more than a few years.
