Building a New E-Commerce Business

E-commerce is booming – every year more and more money is spent online, and it's easier than ever to find good suppliers and products, and get them drop shipped to your customers.

Drop shipping used to be something that only small short-lived stores would do – with unreliable results, especially in terms of the quality of products and shipping times.  But in 2018 things really have changed for the better and drop shipping is probably the best way to get started online now.

With platforms like Shopify (and all of the add on apps like Oberlo) you can set up a professional looking online store in hours and get customers from around the world using ads on Facebook, Bing and of course Google Adwords.

Oberlo connects directly to Ali Express, the leading marketplace for Chinese wholesalers and drop shippers who export to the rest of the world, so you can import their products to sell and have them drop shipped directly to your customers.

There are also more traditional sources of drop shippers too – like Worldwide Brands and Salehoo.  Both of these are directories of certified suppliers that are easy to trade with, but they do not directly integrate with any e-commerce apps like Shopify.

However, it's still easy to set up and start getting customers in just hours with a combination of these e-commerce apps, drop shippers and PPC ads on Bing and Google Adwords.

Worldwide Brands – The Discounts Available

Worldwide Brands is a popular source of verified wholesale and drop shipping suppliers, and has been since it was founded in 1999 (see a full Worldwide Brands review here for more information about WWB), but the price of membership is very high at nearly $300.  So, what discounts are available to new members in 2018 and where can you find them?

Worldwide Brands

Worldwide Brands is a directory of about 8,000 suppliers with more than 15 million products available from these suppliers at trade prices.  You can buy in bulk, 'light bulk' or even single units on a drop shipping basis.  All of the suppliers in Worldwide Brands are fully verified and guaranteed to be reliable and legitimate.  For these reasons it's a popular source of wholesale goods.

Worldwide Brands Discounts

There are often flash sales available on the Worldwide Brands site – usually at the time of other retail sales like in January, Black Friday or on the 4th of July.  These sales usually offer as much as $50 off the $299 membership cost, making it much more affordable at $249.  Bear in mind this is a one time fee for lifetime access, so it's a good idea to find the cheapest deal online.

There are some sites as well that offer consistent dicounts all year round of up to $30 – the link to a review of Worldwide Brands that I posted above is an example but there are many more online too.  These dicounts are good as well, and you can use them at any time – without having to wait for a specific flash sale date.
