    Very poor company, possible ID threat!

    What were the positives?

    nothing

    Any negatives?

    if I had never heard of them

    Overall

    The support was non existent.

    Please think twice before going near this company, they will cost you a fortune and will ask for all your personal info, Drivers licence, both sides, and a copy of your passport.

    Why do they need any of this when they are delivering parcels.
    Parcels paid to be delivered door to door, they then want to appoint customs brokers and charge for storage as they say they cant deliver.
    I have imported many things from china and never come across a company like this before.
    STAY AWAY from this company

    Dropship listing and training

    I joined the worldwide brands and in my opinion Chris does do a good job educating people on what to watch out for on the Internet. I myself have run accords those companies that Chris warned us about. These would of been costly mistakes.

    The training alone is worth the membership money. On top of that you get a list of wholesalers that you can drop ship. If you want higher profits you need to buy in bulk and ship items yourself.

    You will not see high amount of profits in drop shipping, but it's a good place to start while building your business.

    Okay Variety... No Profit

    I believe Chris has worked really hard to put together a list of honest drop shippers. However, the wholesellers' prices are not competitive nor are they in-demand items. The very few items that had some potential were priced higher than the listings on ebay.

    Save your money, and find product resources elsewhere!

    1. Reply from Worldwide Brands

      Hi, this is Chris Malta, Founder and CEO of Worldwide Brands.

      Guys, your frustration is understandable, but have you ever considered that the problem is with the sales venue, and not the wholesale prices?

      eBay and Amazon have always been low-profit venues. Consider the fact that on eBay, almost everyone who shops there will search for what they want, then click the "Sort by lowest price" link.

      If you don't have one of the top three lowest prices, you hardly ever get seen. eBay Sellers know that, so they are forced to constantly undercut each others' prices in order to show up at or near the top of that sorted results page. Dollar by dollar, eBay Sellers are forced to drop their prices in order to compete successfully. Many eBay Sellers who are less experienced fuel this process, and the result is that in order to make sales, you end up selling at a couple of bucks over wholesale.

      I've seen this happening for many years; People call it "a race to the bottom".

      That is not the fault of the wholesaler. The exact same products that are sold at a 5% profit margin on eBay will sell for a 30% to 60% profit margin on an individual website, or in a physical world retail store.

      Add to that the fact that since 2009, eBay has opened a back door into their site and encouraged actual wholesalers and manufacturers to sell on eBay directly, under assumed seller names so that nobody knows who they are, and it becomes almost impossible to earn a reasonable profit on eBay as a small home-based seller.

      This is tough situation, it's discouraging, and it makes people angry. I understand that. It's just that the anger is often pointed in the wrong direction.

      Wholesalers are wholesalers. We've been vetting them thoroughly for almost 18 years. As of this date we list over 8,000 suppliers of more than 15 million products. Their wholesale prices are valid and they are competitive in the general marketplace, but because of the innate margin problems for small sellers with eBay, the profit margins just aren't what they should be.

      That often prompts people to blame the messenger (us, and the wholesalers themselves) instead of looking at the real problem.

      Again, I understand that frustration.

      There is also a mention that there isn't much 'variety' in the wholesalers we list. That's something that people tend to feel when they're only looking for a limited type of product line, which is what most people tend to do.

      That's understandable; people want to sell what they want to sell. It's important to understand that there are NOT a whole lot of wholesalers who are willing to sell single products to home based retailers. It's taken our full-time research team over 17 years to locate 8,000 or so legitimate wholesalers we list. So if you focus your research on just a couple of product types, there may not be much variety within those product types.

      When you consider that there are over 15 million products represented in our Directory, though, that IS a tremendous variety. You just have to be willing to look outside of the narrow band of product research that you may be doing.

      None of these things are talked about on eBay, and none of them are readily apparent when you use eBay. But they are all real issues that force profit margins down severely.

      So please don't condemn the only thoroughly verified source of real wholesale suppliers because of the unfortunate "race to the bottom" mentality that eBay forces you into miserable profit margins. It's not the wholesalers' fault.
