Both Salehoo and Doba are leading services for eBay traders and small online businesses (there are many other Doba reviews to be found online), but which is better? Which is the most useful and how do their membership fees compare?
Doba is a drop-shipping service, rather than a directory – you place orders from suppliers directly though Doba, where you can search through over two million products available to drop ship, and track orders that you've already placed for your customers. It's very easy to use, but costs a lot at nearly $60 a month.
Salehoo is a directory of both drop-shippers and wholesalers. It was founded in 2005 in New Zealand and currently lists about eight thousand suppliers and about one and a half million products available to buy from them.
Salehoo membership costs $67 per year – about as much per year as Doba costs per month! However, although Salehoo is easy to use as well, it's not an integrated solution for managing your stock and getting goods drop shipped directly – you have to contact suppliers listed in Salehoo and buy from them individually.
Which is the best solution for me?
That depends. Doba is by far the easiest, but lists no wholesalers so you cannot buy in bulk and does not give you the opportunity to contact suppliers directly so you cannot build a relationship with them. Salehoo gives you both these options and is much cheaper, but is not as easy to use.
