No, Worldwide Brands is not a wholesale supplier or dropshipper. Worldwide Brands is a service provider. They locate genuine wholesale suppliers, verify their legitimacy to make sure that the supplier is a 100% genuine, real dropshipper for wholesale products and are factory-authorized. They absolutely verify this. Worldwide Brands makes sure that the dropshippers are willing to sell products to online retailers (online stores) at wholesale cost, and see if they will also work with sellers that like to sell on eBay or Amazon. Once they do all this consultation and vet the supplier, they then place the given company in the searchable database for their members to locate. Here is more information on certified dropshippers.

$299 USD for a lifetime membership, but discounts are available.

Yes, absolutely. From time to time there are sales and promotions on the order of $30 – $50 USD. For example, on Memorial Day there was a $50-off sale. Usually you can find a $30-off coupon code. So, the lifetime membership should cost you about $269 USD. You can find the latest coupons at Worldwide Brands Coupons.

Not at all. You are granted a lifetime access to the dropshipper and wholesaler Directory so you can always come back month after month, year after year to expand your business and explore new dropshippers.

First, no overhead is the main benefit. You are not storing nor stocking the inventory, so there are no extra costs involved there. There are no extra costs for you to take the time to pack and ship the product. Dropshipping is also great for testing the product before getting into light-bulk.

You can use dropshipping to sell on eBay and Amazon. EBay is a good place to test the product market to get more instant results. It can be difficult to compete on eBay, so it’s best to purchase in light bulk quantities to sell on the eBay platform. You will get even better pricing by purchasing wholesale products in this manner, and you will have the control over your shipping so there will not be an issue with feedback. However, to test dropshipping product ideas, this is a great place to begin. If you have a nice product, or even private-label a product, then eBay or Amazon can be a great marketplace.

Worldwide Brands does list suppliers from all over the world, but the majority of the wholesale suppliers and dropshippers listed are based in the USA and Canada. But if you are an international retailer, 60%-70% of the listed wholesale suppliers will work with you and ship products worldwide.

Attend Major Wholesale Tradeshows

Going to major Wholesale Tradeshows across the United States, Canada and around the world is expensive, but that’s where you find the best Wholesaler Dropshippers. These are the same wholesale dropshippers used by professional physical retail stores. They make sure you connect your online business and dropshipping site with only the best factory-direct suppliers.

Certify Each and Every Wholesale Dropshipper

Their industry leading qualification process ensures that your business is connected to top wholesalers with REAL wholesale prices. Worldwide Brands builds personal relationships with all of their Wholesalers. They know they are listed in the supplier database and look forward to opening FREE wholesale accounts with WWB members.

Finally, List Them in the Dropshipper Database

Over 10,000 quality Wholesale Dropshippers, Light Bulk and Volume Wholesalers have been added to the dropshipper database and new Wholesalers are added weekly. The quick account setup feature makes it easy for you to set up free accounts fast with listed dropshippers. In addition, Worldwide Brands includes valuable market research data on every single product carried by the Wholesale Dropshippers.

When Worldwide Brands goes through the process of verifying a supplier, they check many different things as well as have stringent criteria. They also monitor the listed suppliers and get feedback from the members. If a wholesale supplier closes their business, changes their wholesale programs or becomes unreliable, they remove the supplier immediately. Keep this directory clean and reliable is their top priority.

Of course! Worldwide Brands sources suppliers from both the US and Canada. Keep in mind that dropshippers located in the US will ship usually to Canada and vice versa. Simply perform a search and specify “Canada” as the dropshipper location.

Many of the listed wholesale and dropship suppliers will send the product in your name, or they will blind drop ship (e.g. They will put a generic label), so the customer doesn’t know exactly where it came from. This is what you want wen establishing a dropshipping business – you want to keep your source hidden so customers come to you.

Blind dropshipping is when the wholesale supplier will use a return label that reads something along the lines of “Fulfillment Center” or “Shipper” as the business name.

Worldwide Brands does not list wholesale suppliers with membership or account setup fees. They stand firm against this and are proud of their clean directory.

With dropshipping, happily no. The supplier will be sending the product on your behalf to the end customer (often with your business logo, name and address). You will pay for the product once a customer orders from you. You pay the dropshipper, and they fulfill the order on your behalf. It’s beautifully simple.

The wholesale suppliers that dropship will provide you with all the images and product descriptions that you will need to sell the product once you have setup an account with the wholesale supplier. However, to really stand out, you can order samples from the dropshipper and take your own photos. This ensures you have the best possible photos, or unique, memorable photos to advance your sales.


Yes. In order to work with any genuine wholesaler or dropship supplier, you need a tax ID. Please see your State’s Department of Revenue’s website for information about a sales tax ID.

Anyone from anywhere can purchase access to the Worldwide Brands Membership and still get a lot of benefit! The majority of the listed wholesale suppliers will work with Canadian retailers. That means over half of the 10,000+ listed suppliers will work with you! If you are from Canada, and only want to work with wholesale suppliers there, you are welcome to contact customer support and they will check for you. Keep in mind that since International rules differ from the US, there is no tax ID involved like you would need for the USA. So you will typically not need a tax ID in order to work with US wholesale suppliers. However, you will still need to obtain a registered business name and any other documentation required to prove you are a legitimate retailer. So you will need to check with the Canadian Revenue Service to see what you need to show you are a genuine retailer.

Absolutely, yes. Worldwide Brands has been an A+ accredited member of the BBB since 2003. Details here.
