Salehoo is a popular directory, but are alternatives like Worldwide Brands and Doba better value for money – and should you consider joining them instead?

Both Salehoo and Worldwide Brands are directories of about 9,000 certified suppliers – that means they are guaranteed to be safe to deal with – and they each have millions of products listed from wholesalers and drop shippers around the world.  Both come with a rather expensive membership fee though – Salehoo is $67 per year and Worldwide Brands is $249 for lifetime membership.

Although these are not cheap, they are much less than Doba – a potential alternative to both Salehoo and Worldwide Brands.  Doba is a fully integrated fulfilment solution, but it costs between $29 and $249 a month for membership!

Salehoo and Worldwide Brands are very similar – the main differences are the price of membership and the number of products.  While Worldwide Brands costs more to begin with, in the long term it works out cheaper as there are no annual fees.  But Worldwide Brands has many more products – at 16 million compared to Salehoo’s relatively small 2.5 million.

So, if you are looking for an alternative to Salehoo you may have found it in Worldwide Brands.  With more products and a membership fee that works out cheaper in the long term, Worldwide Brands is probably the top Salehoo alternative.  That said, Salehoo is a very good directory – and definitely worth joining if you are looking for one with a low initial cost.
