Finding Wholesale Vendors And A Tour Of Worldwide Brands

Share On Facebook

Probably the most frequently asked question I get asked on this blog is how to find wholesale vendors to source products for an online store.

And I almost always make the same recommendation, sign up for Worldwide Brands because it will save you time and help you avoid scammers.

Especially if you want to drop ship your products or source your products domestically within the United States, signing up for Worldwide Brands is the best way to get access to a large database of pre-verified and legit wholesale vendors that sell products across a wide variety of categories.

However, the main problem is that the service costs $300 which stops most people dead in their tracks. Personally, I think $300 is a drop in the bucket when you think about how much time you can save by having direct access to a large data base of pre-verified vendors as opposed to doing random Google searches and cold calling random companies.

So today, I thought that I would show you the power of Worldwide Brands directly by giving you a complete video demo of the service. And incidentally, now’s a great time to sign up for Worldwide Brands because they are offering 30 dollars off to MyWifeQuitHerJob.com readers.

The video below is a brief demonstration and test drive of Worldwide Brands using my own account. Let me know what you think and feel free to ask me any questions you might have about the service. Enjoy the video!

  1. Hi, I really like the topic of your blog and how you deal with it. Sadly, I am Italian and Italian dropshippers are very rare. Which dropshipper directory would you suggest to people leaving outside the US, in Europe more specifically?

    1. Hi Alberto,
      Unfortunately, I’m not as familiar with dropshipping in markets outside the US.

  2. Very interesting topic… online marketing is becoming more and more popular and the ease in everything from looking for suppliers, and reaching out to possible clients is just so amazing.

    1. Hey Andrew,
      It is really amazing. The downside of course is that more people have access to this information which has the negative effect of increased competition. But finding products to sell is only about 10% of the battle. The hard part is getting customers in the door.

  3. Thank you for the answer. Do you know someone who could be familiar with the European market?

  4. That looks like a great service. Like Alberto, I’d like to know if you have any idea whether there’s a similar service in Asia as well?

  5. Ooops sorry, my bad! I didn’t notice that you answered Alberto already.

  6. Thank you for the video. I have been looking at WW Brands for awhile but haven’t pulled the trigger. I may sign up via your site after your video.

    Quick question: once you find a vendor on the service what has been your experience in dealing with the suppliers? My concern is that I pay for the service and the hard part is still left – getting the suppliers to actually work with me and accept me as a partner. Has this been straightforward for you or has it involved a lot of work on each individual vendor?

    Thank you for your guidance. You are the first person that has had some experience with this service that I feel like I can trust.

    1. @Sean
      My experience with the suppliers on WWB have been very positive. As soon as you mention that you found them through WWB, they seem more open to working with you. But after that, it’s up to you to establish the relationship

  7. What tool did you use to shoot video of yourself as well as do simultaneous video screen grab? Very nice effect.

    1. @Sean
      I use Camtasia for my screencasts

  8. we sell only American made grown caught or produces spcialty foods and culinary gifts is the a outlet for finding these things

    Hello, once you setup a business, you are going to be putting your reputation behind the products you sell. So how do you go about evaluating the products that the drop ship vendors will be selling to your customers?

    The video shows the vendors but not the product quality etc? What happens if a customer who buys a product from the website is not satisfied – will they return to the online store or the drop-ship vendor directly? And if such quality issues abound, then is it easy to change the vendor but keep the product?
    Thanks!

    Hi Steve !

    Did you hire someone to create the bumblebee website for you or you did it by yourself. Either way what software did you use to create your website. I am trying to create a website on my own in WordPress as I really want to save money.

    Thanks

    1. Nope, I created it myself. Though these days, there are a lot of themes to choose from that will take you most of the way there. Have you taken my mini course yet?

      1. Karolina says:

        Thanks !

        No I haven’t seen lesson 5 yet. I believe I should receive it today, since it’s the last day of the mini course.

        Also, is there a topic on your blog that talks about profit margins. You mentioned 25% on e bay and amazon but I really need to find out or to find a way to calculate what the profit margin would be for the products I am interested in selling.

        Thanks

    Hi Steve,

    First off, I am so very thankful to come across your website. It has given much valuable information and most importantly, given me the nudge I needed to take the plunge into an eCommerce business. I have been toying with the idea for a year now but for my own financial reasons and insecurities I have been putting it off for fear of failure. I plan to sign up for WWB after seeing your review but am wondering if you have heard of or know anything regarding Panjiva.com?

  12. Hey Steve,

    I am having concerns over the purchase of WWB. I have looked at other review sites with quite a few people complaining about the quality of the vendors and suppliers. Some people are comparing the site to DOBA. I know with DOBA it is more of an intermediary rather than a inventory of wholesalers. I just would like to know if you have used WWB and if you have found any complaints or concerns with the website. I am only 17 years old so 300 dollars is something that I don’t really want to spend without being sure of the quality of the product!

    Thanks!

    1. Hey Joseph

      If you are very short on cash, then I would not make WWB your first purchase. I have a WWB account myself and I find it most useful for finding dropshippers. But for carrying inventory, I usually try to go overseas or contact distributors directly.

    Hi Steve,

    What is your experience with Alibaba and how would you compare it with WWB? From what I’ve seen Alibaba is free, a massive resource and you can also refine your searches to “assessed” and “gold” suppliers only to reduce risk with scammers and the like? Would love your input.

    Thanks!

  14. Very nice article. I admit to giving into some of these failures. I would work for a week or two setting up my site and adding content to it. During this time I gave it my all. Then after launch, I sat back, waited, and even expected traffic to start coming my way. Sometimes I would do SEO for two days and then expect traffic to massively increase within a few days. Of course, my expectations were unrealistically high, and I got very disappointed, demotivated, and even depressed because my expectations weren’t fulfilled.

    Now I know that it takes time and CONSISTENT hard work. I ran my projects like sprints when they were supposed to be marathons. I had thought the harder I worked, the less time I could put between me and earning. That was not the case and, not only did I get disappointed, I also got burned out. So much that I didn’t even start again for a couple months.

    So maybe when you’re coaching your students through their ecommerce stores, let them know ahead of time how much work, effort, and time they will need to put in it in order for it to succeed. Not only in the pre-launch phases, but also in the post-launching phases.

    Good luck to everyone out there!

    1. I would like to join your course and open an online store as well.
      My question is, I am in Spain and would like to know if is everything just the same like opening a store in USA?
      Regards

      1. Can you be more specific as to what you mean by “everything”?

  15. It is really very good article.. Please brief about wholesale market statics in online..
    Thank you

    Hello Steve,

    Thank you for providing this information. I have been doing a lot of research about dropshipping business. I’m interested in fashion clothing and shoe niches. Are you able to recommend where I can find the best manufacturers/wholesale for these niches? I’ve heard about Worldwidebrands but I don’t want to pay $300 yet as I’m willing to dig more research via google.

    Does WWB manufacturers/wholesales have good quality of stylish clothes? I was wondering if you could give me some recommendations that would be very much appreciated :)

    I prefer to work with American manufacturers or wholesalers who will do the dropshipping for me.

    But while reading from Andrew’s blog of ecommercefuel, he mentioned that:

    “In the United States, legitimate drop shippers won’t work with you unless you have a legal business established and have an EIN, or an Employer Identification Number. You can think of an EIN number as a social security number for your business. Depending on if your state charges sales tax, you’ll also need a sales tax ID from your state.”

    Do I still need to have an EIN even if I don’t live in the United States? I travel frequently and my usual home base is in Sydney and Auckland.

    I hope you can answer all my questions.

    Many thanks.

    Regards,

    Paris
