There are two main reasons that e-commerce store owners and eBay sellers join Worldwide Brands and other similar directories and services like Salehoo and Doba – first of all they are easy to use, and secondly they are safer than trading with new unverified suppliers.
I want to talk about these points in more detail in this post though – and explain how a directory like Worldwide Brands can be useful to new online businesses.
The Key Features of Worldwide Brands
Worldwide Brands is a directory of certified drop-shippers, liquidators and wholesalers – just over 8,000 as of April 2018 and all of them researched and certified.
Membership also includes access to the members forums, research tools and support. Worldwide Brands costs $299 to join, although there are discounts available.
Why Join a Directory?
As I mentioned earlier, there are two reasons people join directories: they are both safe and easy.
Because all of the suppliers in the directory have been researched and certified before being listed, you can trust that they are legitimate and reliable to trade with – so there's no risk buying from them.
It's also much, much easier to find suppliers of the products you're looking for. For example, Worldwide Brands has a database of over 16 million wholesale products (from their suppliers) that you can search through online – that's not possible on Google, or anywhere but a directory like Worldwide Brands.
