Working With Worldwide Brands and Shopify

Shopify is a really easy to use e-commerce tool, and Worldwide Brands is probably the best place to find reliable and fast US based drop shippers and wholesalers.  But there's one big problem – they do not work well together at all.  There's no tool like Oberlo (which works with Ali Express and Shopify) that allows you to automate the setup and management of a Shopify store, populated with products from Worldwide Brands – and that's a big problem.

It's a shame too, because Worldwide Brands has much better suppliers and products than Ali Express and DHGate – all of their suppliers are fully researched and certified as legitimate and most are based in the USA, which means shipping is much faster.

But the manual setup deters people – to re-sell products from Worldwide Brands you will need to contact each supplier directly and buy from them over the phone or email, or their own individual websites.  As a result, you'll also have to manage stock levels and each product separately too.

There is an opportunity in this chaos though – because most other sellers will be lazy and only sell lower quality items from Ali Express instead, you could carve out a niche with some good products from Worldwide Brands and offer something that your competition does not – fast delivery and high quality products.…

Worldwide Brands, Doba and Salehoo – Which is the Best?

In this Worldwide Brands review I'm going to compare the market leading WWB to two more recent and highly popular wholesaler / drop shipper directories and services – Salehoo and Doba.  Both are great alternatives to Worldwide Brands, but how do they each compare?

As you will probably know already, Worldwide Brands is a directory of drop shippers and wholesalers – about 8,000 of them with more than 16,000,000 products listed in a searchable database.  All of the suppliers listed in Worldwide Brands are guaranteed to be reliable and it's the only directory that is certified by eBay.

Doba

Doba is a bit different to Worldwide Brands in two ways – first of all it's not a directory of suppliers, it's a middleman, and secondly it only does drop shipping – no wholesalers.  However, it's a very simple interface to use and it's great for beginners.  With 2,000,000 products listed Doba is much smaller than Worldwide Brands, but it's a good service fot anyone starting out who is only looking for drop shippers.

Salehoo

Salehoo is very similar to Worldwide Brands – in fact it's almost a copy and was founded six years later in 2005.  Salehoo has a more international focus than WWB, which is focused mainly on the Unied States and China, but most importantly, Salehoo has far fewer products listed than Worldwide Brands – only 1.5 million from the same number of suppliers.…
