Detailed Review

Headquartered in Maitland, Florida, Worldwide Brands was founded in the year 1999. Worldwide Brands helps online retailers source their drop shipping products from a large collection of US-based and international wholesalers that have been certified by the company.

Large Selection of Products

Online resellers often have to compete with others who are selling the same product. Since Worldwide Brands provides its members access to millions of products, retailers have plenty of options available to them. For instance, in addition to purchasing products under the Light Bulk Wholesale option, retailers can also purchase a few niche products. Niche products are particularly beneficial to beginners, since they don't have to deal with over-saturated competition that comes with mainstream products.

Furthermore, niche markets also allow retailers to net in higher margins on their products. A wide range of product categories, from consumer electronics and sports goods to vehicle accessories and books, ensures that you can always find a product that suits your business needs.

Scam Protection

Regardless of whether you are a new or established online reseller, a poor feedback from a customer, particularly one that labels your service as a scam, can tarnish the image of your online business. It's very important for retailers, therefore, to deal only with authentic and proven dropshippers. Worldwide Brands' Wholesale Scam Protection feature ensures that members sell products only from certified dropshippers that are placed at the top of the supply chain.

‘Top-Level' Dropshippers

According to the company, ‘Top-Level' Dropshippers are the actual official distributors of wholesale products, and are the same wholesalers that are also used by big retail stores such as JC Penny, BestBuy, etc. For online resellers, gaining access to such wholesalers means that they are assured of lower wholesale prices on their products. For retailers who deal primarily with mainstream products, a Light Bulk Wholesale option allows them to purchase products in larger volumes, thereby increasing their overall profit margins.

Certified Wholesalers

Worldwide Brands certifies its wholesalers via a rigorous set of procedures. The company states that a dedicated team of research personnel regularly visits trade shows and talks to manufacturers directly to locate and identify authorized distributors of branded products. Following a strict qualification process, suppliers are certified and listed in the company's directory.

Membership Benefits

Members receive lifetime access to Worldwide Brands' Wholesalers, Importers and Liquidation Wholesale Suppliers. In addition to the product sourcing tool, members receive Built in Market Research, which allows users to look at market research information; access to Whole$ale, an educational product that provides videos, workbooks and real-life exercises that help you to learn how to work with your suppliers; and access to a Member's Only Forum where you can not only receive assistance from other members, but also build networks to grow your business.

Support Options

Worldwide Brands supports its members through multiple channels. Though email support is available only during working hours, there are separate email contacts provided for general, password-related, order and membership-related queries. Phone support is also available for general information and to address immediate concerns. A comprehensive FAQ section helps to iron out commonly asked questions, and featured videos and eBooks provide useful tips and techniques to sell products online.  

Conclusion

Worldwide Brands can be a good option for online retailers looking for access to a directory of products from authentic wholesalers. The range and selection of products runs into the millions. Additional membership benefits, such as access to educational content and a Member's Only Forum, along with plenty of support options make it a viable, value-for-money drop ship directory for new as well as large and established online resellers.
