Salehoo – Top Questions and Answers
Some time ago I wrote a very long and detailed Salehoo review, so I've chosen to dedicate this post to the top questions I've received about Salehoo and similar alternatives like DHGate, Ali Express and Worldwide Brands.
How much does Salehoo cost?
Membership to Salehoo costs $67 per year, every year that you're a member. There are some up-sells including extra training at $27 a year, and an e-commerce plugin that costs $39 a month.
How does that compare to the alternatives?
Worldwide Brands starts off more expensive at $299, but that's for lifetime membership and there are discounts of as much as $50 available.
Ali Express and DHGate are completely free to join and use, but they are slightly different – they are both marketplaces for Chinese wholesalers, rather than directories of certified suppliers like Salehoo and Worldwide Brands.
What are the alternatives to Salehoo?
The closest alternative is Worldwide Brands, which is another directory – with about the same number of suppliers and many more products.
DHGate and Ali Express are both marketplaces for Chinese drop shippers and wholesalers, which are very cheap to buy form but can be unreliable and have very slow shipping to the USA.
Doba is another alternative – it's a service that you can buy over two million products from and have them drop shipped directly to your customers.
Are there any discounts available for Salehoo?
At the moment there are none, however, occasionally a one week trial (costing $1) is available on the Salehoo website.
