Worldwide Brands and Doba

Doba is a popular and easy to use drop shipping service, and Worldwide Brands is a directory of certified wholesalers and drop shippers.  They sound similar, and in many ways they are – as they appeal to mostly the same customers, but there are some key differences as well which I'm going to explore in this post.

Worldwide Brands

Worldwide Brands is a directory of certified drop shippers and wholesalers – there are about 8,000 in total and from these suppliers about 16 million products are available to buy at wholesale prices.  Membership costs $299 ($249 with the discount that's available in June) and it comes with extras including a market research tool.

However, while you can search by product keyword in the Worldwide Brands members area, you need to contact each supplier individually to buy from them.

Doba

Doba is a service for e-commerce stores that want goods drop shipped to their customers directly.  Doba lists more than two million products that are available from drop shippers on it's website and promises to deliver them all to your customers.  It's easy to use, but can be expensive.

There are no extra tools with Doba and it costs at least $30 a month to be a member.

The Differences

Worldwide Brands is better value for money and much more flexible, but Doba is very easy to use – so if you're looking for low prices and flexibility then WWB is better, but if you just want drop shipping to be easy then Doba is probably the best for you.
