SALEHOO REVIEW: WHAT IS IT?
SaleHoo is a New Zealand based organization that was founded in 2005 by Simon Slade and Mark Ling. It is a wholesale directory that connects individuals with over 2.5 million branded products and 8000+ manufacturers, wholesalers, drop-shippers, and liquidators. SaleHoo acts solely as an intermediary and is not a direct supplier so they do not exchange any merchandise.
Essentially SaleHoo is a must-have for serious drop shippers. Especially if you’re new to drop shipping and you’re trying to get your store built and making you money. It’s going to take a lot of sweat and due diligence when looking for the right supplier.
SaleHoo does all that work and due diligence for you. They also have a really impressive training center and support team that wants you to succeed.

For those who can’t be asked to read through everything, let me just say this. It’s the perfect directory for some people, but not for everyone, and in this article, we’re going to explain who it benefits and who should be looking elsewhere.
At Hustle Life, we’re all about earning more by working smarter. So when we decided to investigate and review Salehoo, we were immediately excited by the concept of someone taking out all the hard work that comes with drop shipping.
But does Salehoo actually deliver on its promise? How does it compare to the other drop ship and whole directories online? Let’s jump right into it and see.
We give SaleHoo a score of 4 out of 5. If they have a slightly larger directory, so you’d have more choice as your e-commerce store developed, then we’d give them the full 5 stars.
This New Zealand based team take all the stress and concern out of the drop shipping process. They’ve done all the hard work for you by validating the suppliers and their products. You know you’re selling genuine branded goods. That’s always the main concern when dealing with Asian suppliers because the fakes are just so good and you don’t want your customers to be duped.
The other thing they do is over deliver in terms of customer service and free training. They want to help you get your drop shipping business up and running and it really shows because they actually put in the effort.
Overall, they are the perfect startup directory. They have 2.5 million products, 8000 suppliers and a platform that’s really user-friendly. They give you a ‘safe space’ to find decent and respectable suppliers. There are larger directories but none that give the same level of service and support as Salehoo.
