Setting Up a Store With Worldwide Brands and Shopify

Shopify is a popular e-commerce platform and Worldwide Brands is one of the leading sources of wholesalers and drop shippers in the United States – it is, in fact, the largest source of wholesale products from certified suppliers anywhere.

Setting up a store using both Shopify and Worldwide Brands, instead of Ali Express, is not easy though – certainly not as easy as importing and fulfilling through an app like Dropified or Oberlo.  If you want to find products on Worldwide Brands, after paying the $299 membership fee, you can search their database of 16 million products really easily.

However, you need to contact each supplier individually on the telephone, email or their own web sites if you want to buy anything from them.  That means managing all of you inventory and fulfilment manually – very manually.

But sometimes it can be worth the extra effort.  The suppliers listed in Worldwide Brands are much more reliable than those that may be found on Ali Express – or other Chinese marketplaces like DHGate.  They are all researched, certified and guaranteed to be reliable.

As there are so many products from suppliers that the team at Worldwide Brands have gone out looking for, there will be many items not available on other sites.  Perhaps most importantly of all, many of the suppliers in Worldwide Brands are based in the USA too – which means delivery will be much faster.
