What Am I Buying?
  • Salehoo’s directory of wholesale distributors (which includes liquidators, dropshippers and wholesalers).
  • A private, members’ forum. (This is gold. See why under first point in benefits, below.)
  • Tips and advice in dealing with these distributors (you will find them dispersed around the site to remind you)
  • 3 bonus software (related to eBay auctions, although I personally felt that there are better programs - which require more $$$ of course)
  • 3 bonus eBooks (related to auctions and flea markets)
Features:
  • Wholesale source categories range from art & collectibles to clothes, books, computers & gaming, jewelry & watches, movies & music, shoes & fashion to toys!
  • Some products (with prices) you might want to look at (the page is graphic intensive, give it more time to load while you read the rest of the review)
  • Country-specific sources if you are from Australia or UK.
  • Sites of the month feature
  • Database Updates for new distributors and removal of those with recurring complaints…
Benefits/Pros:
  • The members’ forum is where you go to verify the integrity of a source and chat with other members on their experience with other dealers - it’s always a good thing to know you’re not alone.
  • The tips and tricks serve as reminders, which is a good thing, especially if you are just starting out or you happen to have a question like, "Should I use escrow services?"
  • If you want to sell something that their current database of distributors don’t carry, then Salehoo will look for a source for you.
  • The database is more than enough. You should be able to find a dealer with whatever you have in mind (and people will want to buy)
  • The items are not only for online sales (eBay and other auctions), but also great if you have an offline, brick-and-mortar store. One lingerie dealer I found even had a starter kit to help you set up your store with necessary items (based on their experience, the items that will be more common amongst buyers).
Cons: They don’t carry dealers that sell electronic pianos (the ones musicians gig with). BUT Salehoo promised to look for a source for me if I’ll tell them about it. I figured that I wasn’t very keen on selling pianos, so I let that pass.
Format (Price): Online access of wholesale suppliers, USD49.95 (one-time fee for a lifetime of benefits)
Requirement(s): Capital to order from the wholesalers, so you can do your business.
Who It’s For:
  1. If you are selling (or interested in selling) tangible consumer products, Salehoo’s directory will give you a galore of suppliers.
  2. If you would like to purchase tangible consumer products at wholesale price (depending on the product, bulk purchase has different meanings from 5 to 1000) - the products can be for yourself or for sharing with a few friends, or even as gifts. Use your imagination.
Tips & Advice:

This membership can be priceless or worthless, depending on whether you want to search the directory for products to buy.

So, have something in mind to sell/buy first, then go get Salehoo. At that point time, I will highly recommend Salehoo to you.
