Although there are already a large number of Worldwide Brands reviews around the internet, I want to give a quick summary and overview of the popular directory of suppliers in this post.
Worldwide Brands was founded in 1999 by Chris Malta, a professional eBay seller back in the mid 90s – soon after the site was first set up. Back then there were not any other sources of certified suppliers, so Worldwide Brands was quite groundbreaking.
Now of course there are many alternatives – from sites like DHGate and Ali Express to other directories like Salehoo and drop shipping services like Doba. But Worldwide Brands remains the largest by far in terms of the number of products on offer. Worldwide Brands has about 8,000 certified wholesalers and drop shippers and around 16 million products that you can search though and buy at trade prices.
Membership is expensive though – for lifetime access to the Worldwide Brands database you will need to pay the rather large sum of $249. However, this is for unlimited lifetime use of the directory and there is a 30 day money back guarantee too.
Worldwide Brands is probably the best directory, but it's also among the most expensive – so if you are looking for certified suppliers definitely do consider joining it, but bear in mind the cheaper alternatives as well.
