My review of SaleHoo
- Product: SaleHoo
- Overall Ranking: 94 out of 100
- Price: $67 a year
- owners: CEO Simon Slade
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.

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
