Rating: World wide brands is one of the oldest and most talked about wholesale directories online. They boast the largest supplier data base in the world however I beg to differ. World Wide Brands does have a quite massive wholesale directory I only found about 150 drop shippers. When using their supplier finding tool I was also disappointed due to the poor results. For example a simple search for home decor shows 56 suppliers with about 50 sub categories each with their own handful of suppliers, here’s where things get tricky for example most of the subcategories each had the exact same suppliers so in reality their was a lot less suppliers than it seemed to show. I think part of the problem is due to the search function which makes it difficult to find suppliers efficiently. I found that I was not the only one with this problem as their was several complaints on the forum about it. The world wide brands staff says this is for security reasons but it does make it difficult to find suppliers.
That is my only complaint with their service I think they are a great company and I support their mission to help keep e-commerce safe and they are doing a great job with it. I did not mean to start this review out on a negative and that was not my intention, but I have a duty to write this review as fair and balanced as possible.
World wide brands has been online for a long time and they have done a great job compiling all of their data. They have many resources available to their members from books and videos, tutorials, and a online support staff. If you are completely new to the internet this is without a doubt the type of stuff you need to be successful.
Their website is state of the art with a virtual control panel that allows you to store data, and have instant access to your suppliers. The websites they have listed are top of the line and I must say it is worth the $400.00 price tag if you can afford it.
I rate them an A Rating: and commend them on helping to keep the internet safe.
