Salehoo Review – Is it good for dropshipping?

As entrepreneurs it’s always a good idea to determine which service is most profitable and will grow your business best. Recently, I’ve been asked to investigate Salehoo to determine whether or not dropshippers should use their service. This Salehoo review will detail Salehoo pros and cons and whether or not it’s good for dropshipping.

Salehoo Review – What is Salehoo?

Salehoo is a wholesale supplier directory service that connects dropshippers to suppliers. The New Zealand company has suppliers from countries from the United States, UK and Australia on their platform.

Dropshippers use their sourcing tool to connect with suppliers, manufacturers and liquidators to get access to products at wholesale prices that they can sell to consumers. Many of Salehoo’s customers then sell the dropshipped goods via eBay, Amazon or Etsy to turn a profit.

Salehoo also offers website templates so dropshippers can start their own online store via their platform. While their backend isn’t as powerful as Shopify’s it’s a fair starting point for inexperienced dropshippers. However, you need to be a premium member to have access to this feature.


Salehoo Review – Is Salehoo Legit?

While there is a high number of affiliate reviews online, the general consensus is that Salehoo is a legitimate company. Whether or not dropshippers are running highly profitable businesses via the platform can be debated. However, Salehoo doesn’t appear to be a scam, or a poorly developed solution.

Salehoo Review – Is It Profitable?

Take a look at the images below. In the first image, you see the Potential Profit a dropshipper can make on a Panda Onesie for kids according to Salehoo. However, on Amazon, the most popular seller of the product charges between $14.99 and $16.99. In general, Amazon is an indicator for what market value really is for a product. A person selling it on eBay would be outpriced by the several variations of the same product available on Amazon for much cheaper. If a dropshipper were to follow the recommended $36.99 they would likely lose sales to dropshippers who are retailing the product at about half the price. Thus, while a dropshipper may be able to make a profit on Salehoo, the amount is likely not as high as they’d hope.
