Introduction

First introduced in 2005, SaleHoo is a New Zealand based company whose suppliers are from the US, UK, Canada, Australia and China. SaleHoo is not a wholesaler but a directory of over 8,000 wholesalers who provide drop shipping of over 1.6 million products at genuine wholesale prices. In fact, there are many who say it is the best sourcing tool for online resellers the world over.  

Who is it for

This is for anyone looking for legitimate online money making opportunities. If you’re looking for products to sell and wholesalers to buy from, this is your ticket. If you’re out to earn money using the internet then the chances are you don’t have deep pockets. Maybe it’s something you’re doing on the side just to get started or you’re trying to get out of a rut. Whatever, capital is probably what you don’t have enough of.

Drop shipping is the answer when you don’t have the capital to purchase bulk product or the warehouse to store that product. Also, you don’t have to package and ship that product yourself and you won’t get stuck with it, if it doesn’t sell.

With drop shipping, you research for products that will sell. This is made easier with SaleHoo’s market research labs which search to discover the most profitable products to sell. You then advertise these products on Amazon or E bay or anywhere you choose and when you make a sale, you order the product from the wholesaler and have it dropshipped to your customer. Below is an example of profitable products to sell.

In my research of SaleHoo one of the common complaints I came across was that the wholesalers prices were so high you couldn’t make a profit. As you can see from the screenshot, that just doesn’t seem to be the case.

Tools and training

One of the best tools is the safe supplier directory itself. There are over 8,000 verified wholesalers to choose from. Verified is important because this means you can trust the people you’re dealing with. SaleHoo has been known to drop wholesalers from the directory for issues of trust.

The market research labs is a powerful tool for finding profitable products to sell.

Pros

  • Verified safe supplier directory
  • Top brand names–Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, Nike, Adidas, Cannon, HP, Ralph Lauren among others.
  • Support and training
  • Price– Less than $6 a month
  • The Forum– even providing tips on what pitfalls to avoid
  • Research labs
  • Most suppliers have no minimum order requirement
  • Member BBB
  • 60 day money back guarantee

Cons

  • Worldwide brands has a larger data base but costs $497
  • Unable to search for location specific suppliers

In researching this review I found there are companies advertising dropshipping service that are scams. Others, like Worldwide brands ($497) and Doba ($49 a month) are very expensive. SaleHoo at $67 a year seems to be a bargain and they do give a 60 day money back guarantee.

  • Final Verdict: Recommended

    Drop shipping has never been something I have looked into, mainly due to the high costs of storing and then the mission of shipping out again.

    Affiliate marketing on the other hand is easier, because the merchant handles all that for you. The commissions are most probably better when you do drop shipping though, and SaleHoo looks like a great option for people wanting to dip their toes in.

    The idea of drop shipping has always intrigued me. If i build a website and advertise with products I could turn a decent profit. Thank you for providing me with this information. Is there a free trial for this service? It seems like it is worth paying for but I would like to be able to check it out first.

      Hi Keith,

      Thanks for stopping by. You don’t actually need a website for drop shipping. You can sell on e bay. No, there is not a free trial but there is a 60 day money back guarantee. Thanks for the comment.

    I have a friend who makes money online from drop shipping and he says it’s a great way to earn extra money on the web.

    I’ve come across SaleHoo before and it seems like an awesome platform for finding wholesale suppliers to do business with. 🙂

    With so many suppliers available to connect with, I can see why SaleHoo is the best opportunity for earning as a drop shipper.

    Looking at all the benefits, I don’t see why anyone would pass up the opportunity to take advantage of SaleHoo.

    Thanks for the review

      Hi Neil,

      First I want to thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. SaleHoo has over 8,000 verified suppliers. In drop shipping it’s important to know you have suppliers you can count on. SaleHoo takes the worry out of that part of the business.

      have a great day and thanks again, Neil.
