Worldwide Brands is the top directory of certified drop shippers and wholesalers, and has been since 1999, when it was founded by Chris Malta (here's a Worldwide Brands discount link for anyone who's interested in joining). Now that Worldwide Brands is nearly 20 years old, I wanted to write a quick post about the key features and benefits that make it the top supplier directory – both in 1999 and now in 2018.
Worldwide Brands – The Directory
Worldwide Brands is a directory, not a supplier itself. It lists products and suppliers – more than 16 million products from about 8,500 drop shippers and wholesalers – and you can easily search through them by product name, category or keyword.
Membership costs $299, although there is a $30 discount available at the moment, and there is a 30 day money back guarantee.
Worldwide Brands – The Advantages
The two key features of Worldwide Brands are:
1. All of their suppliers are certified to such a high level that Worldwide Brands are willing to offer a guarantee that they are all legitimate and reliable – so there is no risk buying from suppliers found through Worldwide Brands.
2. With more than 16 million products from 8,500+ suppliers, Worldwide Brands has the greatest scale of all of the directories, and with that comes lower prices and a much greater range of products at trade prices.
Worldwide Brands is the leader because of it's scale – more than ten times the size of their closest competitor, Salehoo, Worldwide Brands has a huge number of products that you will not find elsewhere. That was true in 1999 and it still is in 2018 – Worldwide Brands is expensive, but it's still popular because it's scale is unmatched.
