Hello Idan,

We highly suggest contacting the supplier directly to inquire about their terms.

For anything, we do not rely on third party reviews written by non-SaleHoo members.

Hopefully, we can get more reviews from our members. As of now, we can assure you that this supplier is listed as a directory approved supplier and that they have been pre-screened based on our listed qualifications.

All the best!

Hi there!

I'm new here. I've just joined the Salehoo. I have a question:

Why this firm wants to get paid for their membership?

Do not Salehoo offer free wholesaler?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Hi Mustafa and welcome to the forum,

the suppliers we list in our directory are all independent of SaleHoo and are verified based on being safe to trade with. Some suppliers do require membership to open an account with them, other do not, it's a choice made by the suppliers themselves. I would suggest not automatically be put off by them charging a membership, you should weight up the benefits you can get with that membership against a supplier who doesn't charge a sign on fee and then go with who provides the best over all service for you.

@gunduzcihat : Do not Pay to Albany! Waste of money. Very high price and not a large collection.

I signed up with them and not being that experienced was not sure what to look for. They were very helpful but rarely answered emails even for basic questions. They were quick to respond if you called, but sometimes if you are busy and it is a simple question it is easier to just drop an email.
What put me off most was their search engine. Even with a detailed request it was hard to find some products. The margins are very small. I can see some value if you work at high volumes. I am sure they give a better deal also. Many products did not have images but the data feeds generally do.
They apparently work hard on the data and keeping things up do date except for their own website. It reflects a lot of out of stock items.
it is a shame because they carry name brand products and a large variety of categories.
If you want one that is very attentive and helpful, with an easy site to navigate I suggest Chinavision. It is a good example of how to do a website IMO.
No fees at all. But it is over 90% electronics from China. Not everybody's thing. Still a nice shop to work with. Margins are decent. If you plan to do Ebay or Amazon sales take care, they suck up quite a bit of your profit with fees. Most like Chinavision don't really care how much you jack your prices, but of course buyers do.
