How Reliable are Salehoo’s Suppliers?

Salehoo is a popular directory of wholesalers (this Salehoo review talks about the features in detail) that was founded in 2005 and has been operating consistently ever since.  It has thousands of members, each paying $67 per year for membership, and more than 2.5 million products available to buy at trade prices from around 8,000 suppliers – but are their suppliers really as reliable as they are supposed to be?

Salehoo – A Directory

Salehoo is not a wholesaler itself, it's a directory of wholesalers, manufacturers and wholesalers that have all been researched and certified.  Each supplier is different, and they may each deal differently with their customers, but they should at least be reliable and legitimate.

The Big Issue – Reliability

Salehoo guarantees that all 8,000 suppliers listed are safe to trade with, and it is generally considered a better place to buy wholesale goods than most other sources – like DHGate and Ali Express.

The key to the quality of Salehoo's suppliers is that they are all researched – someone at Salehoo (which employs over 30 people) visits every supplier who applies to join and places 'test' orders to check that they can deliver.

The quality of products will vary from one supplier to another, but they should all be legitimate and at least somewhat reliable in order to be listed in the Salehoo directory.

Where To Buy Wholesale Products From

buy wholesaleHave you identified a great product which you would love to retail subject to the fact that you find the right place to order them in bulk at wholesale prices from? What you are looking for are wholesalers and this is something that you will have to work hard for. If you are new to the retail business then most wholesalers may not be willing to work with you as they would already have established clients to move their inventory without needing to have to look for new customers every time.

However, this is usually true with high street wholesalers who tend to have such a mindset. To improve your chances of finding a good wholesaler who would be willing to offer you help in terms of facilitating for you to buy wholesale products, you will have to look online.

Look for directories that specialize in listing wholesalers in your area as they tend to have their own ways of identifying all possible wholesalers in any given area. They will have done all the hard work for you, the only thing left would be for you to figure out which ones would indeed be perfect for you to partner with. Obviously some may not be appropriate for your needs whereas others may have excuses to not work with you.
