Shopify and Ali Express work well, but since stores started using Worldwide Brands as a source of high quality suppliers the competition has become much more intense.
Worldwide Brands may be more work to manage than using a combination of Ali Express and Oberlo with Shopify, but in both the short and long term it’s a much better way of doing business. With more products form certified suppliers than anywhere else, over 16 million in total, Worldwide Brands offers more choice than smaller directories like Salehoo and Doba and much better quality suppliers with faster shipping than most marketplaces, including Ali Express and DHGate.
The problem with Shopify in 2018 is not the platform itself, and there is no lack of demand for products online either, it’s that so many of the people who set up stores with Shopify use bad quality suppliers and products from sites like Ali Express.
There remains, and always has been, a huge opportunity to make a lot of money selling good quality products online – and the best place to buy them is Worldwide Brands. So if you are thinking of setting up shop online with Shopify then you really should look at the sort of products you can get from sites like Worldwide Brands and Salehoo, before looking at the cheaper alternatives.
