SaleHoo, Doba and Worldwide Brands Compared

In this post I'm going to talk about Worldwide Brands, Salehoo and Doba – briefly introducing each and then comparing them at the end.

Worldwide Brands

Worldwide Brands is a directory of about 8,600 certified wholesalers and drop shippers with more than 15.5 million products listed at trade prices from these sellers in a searchable database.  It costs $299 to join and comes with forums, tutorials and tools as well.  It's the only directory that's certified by eBay and the oldest, having been established in 1999.

Salehoo

This is another directory – but smaller than Worldwide Brands with only about 1.6 million products listed.  It was founded in 2005 and costs a total of $67 per year.  Like WWB, it comes with forum access, tools and videos about selling on eBay.

Doba

Doba is a middleman, not a directory – but it's often compared to them as it's a good alternative.  However, it's much more expensive at $60 a month, and only offers products to be drop shipped – there are no options to buy in bulk form wholesalers with Doba.

Which is the Best?

Worldwide Brands is the leading directory of suppliers – covering both drop shippers and wholesalers – and is the only directory that's fully endorsed by eBay, the most difficult marketplace to sell on.  In my view, Worldwide Brands is the best.
