There are many similarities and differences between Worldwide Brands and Doba, both of which are sources of suppliers and wholesale goods for online re-sellers. But there are some important differences too – most of all in the type of suppliers and the price of membership. In this article, that's what I'm going to talk about in more detail.
Doba and Worldwide Brands
Worldwide Brands is a directory of wholesalers, liquidators, manufacturers and drop shippers – in total over 8,000 certified suppliers. Of these, the overwhelming majority (more than 90% of them) either drop ship or sell in light bulk.
When you buy from Worldwide Brands you search for a product or supplier, get their contact information and deal with them directly.
There are two key differences with Doba though. First of all, Doba only does drop shipping – no buying in bulk or light bulk from any of their suppliers. Secondly, as you buy through Doba itself, you do not deal with any suppliers directly, which makes using Doba easier but less flexible.
The Cost of Membership
There's a big difference in the cost of membership too – while Doba ranges from $30 to $250 a month, Worldwide Brands costs $249 for lifetime membership. So while Worldwide Brands is more expensive initially it works out to be cheaper and more flexible in the long term.
