I've written about Worldwide Brands before, but this time I'm going to talk about the leading wholesaler and drop shipper directory and whether or not it's still worth joining in 2017, now that competitors like Salehoo have become more established and sites like DHGate and Ali Express have grown in popularity so much.
Worldwide Brands Review
When I first encountered Worldwide Brands in 2008 there was not much competition and their directory of products was much more limited – at about two million products from a few thousand suppliers, as I remember. The only competitors were Salehoo and Doba, both of which were similar – apart from Doba only offering drop shippers and no wholesalers.
How things have changed though! Worldwide Brands now has more suppliers than Salehoo and about ten times the number of products – reaching 16 million in 2017 and growing by about 400,000 every year.
Salehoo is still a good directory, and Doba is a good service for dropshipping, but they have been left way behind Worldwide Brands. DH Gate and Ali Express do not verifiy their suppliers like WWB and Salehoo do, so while they are good they cannot offer the same guarantee of reliability.
Unlike many similar tools, Worldwide Brands has remained at the same price too – $299 for lifetime membership.
Is It Still Worth Joining?
Very much so yes – Worldwide Brands is still by far the leading source of suppliers on the Intetnet with over ten million products from nearly 9,000 suppliers it's far bigger than Salehoo and much more reliable than any other similar site. Worldwide Brands is still very much the best wholesaler and dropshipper directory in 2017.
