Hi and a warm welcome to you, msm1980!
May I ask what gave you the impression that our suppliers are not true and trustworthy?
Just to clarify, I would like to inform you that each and every supplier that is being added to the directory has been verified by SaleHoo staff members. We take a number of steps to ensure that suppliers meet our rigorous standards before they are added to the database.
* All our wholesalers must meet minimum standards of service. Most notably, we insist that suppliers provide secure payment methods so that in the unlikely event of something going wrong, members can always get their money back.
* We make anonymous purchases from all our suppliers and then rate them on price, speed, quality and service.
* Our three-tiered review system means that you don't only get our opinion on a supplier - you also get ratings from other SaleHoo members and independent eBay powersellers! You don't need to take just our word for it... find out what everyone else is saying, and judge for yourself.
* If a supplier receives a poor review, we keep both the supplier and the review in our database to alert other members. We believe that knowing who you can't trust is as important as knowing who you can.
You also have to take note that price is not a category that makes a supplier a trusted supplier. For many wholesalers you need to approach them and ask further to get better prices - The greater your order volume the lower the price will go. Although its another story for dropshipping, where there is pretty much no room for haggling, what you see is what you get.
As for reviews, there have been reviews added by admin, but please take into consideration the total number of suppliers in our directory. Reviews are not mandatory they are voluntary and therefore we cannot force each member to leave one. To help us in providing more reviews, we have hired the help of our resident Powersellers so you may find Powerseller reviews in some supplier profiles.
If you have any further concerns please do not hesitate to let us know.
