I agree that they are middle men but I dont know if I would say they are scammers? I personally have not used any of these sites and never will how did they get a 5 star rating ?Who rates these people ? is it verified by anyone?I thought the listings were 'verified' That is what it says on the homepage.Could the sites be members sites? I consider a scammer someone who cheats me out of my money and as long as they provide the service I dont think they are a scammer I would definately say they are middlemen but that does not mean they are bad people how do we know for sure cbk is the main supplier maybe some one else sales it for cheaper.I dont really know where to point blame on this one folks Salehoo has let these people in and I trust they know what is going on around here I kind of have mixed feelings on this one I am glad this has been pointed out I wander how many more sites are on here like this one? I always assumed the sites listed here were 'verified' and surely someone could not have messed up this bad so it was either purposely done or added by a member but they should have been checked.
It would be nice even to list suppliers that are with BBB. Or even add new suppliers once or twice a year or six months. Just my thoughts.
I AGREE I havent seen an update since I have been a member and doesnt the homepage say it is updated daily ha
I think there are some very valid points being raised in this thread, and while these suppliers may be genuine, they should not be listed under directories such as wholesale when they are nothing more than discount retailers, or even worse....full retail!
Members are joining here to not only find genuine suppliers selling genuine articles , but also expect the suppliers to be what they are listed as. At the moment it seems that everyone is being let down all round.
You shouldn't have retail prices in a wholesale category, you shouldn't have suppliers selling fakes listed under any of these categories. Sure there is a market for people wanting to buy fakes, but why on earth aren't these suppliers in their own category, or are at least flagged to let members know what they are dealing with.
Seems that someone is asleep in the wheel house when this type of situation is happening. I believe that it is incumbent on Salehoo to ensure a better checking process to ensure the suppliers listed under the set categories fit specific trading criteria to offer members complete clarity.
One other thing I have to say is that I hate the way most of the marketing seems to focus around finding suppliers for ebay, when the truth is that is like finding a needle in a hay stack on here, perhaps possible, but no easier than researching the net yourself in my opinion. I know it's all about marketing, but come on guys......I think the time might be right to start cleaning up some areas including the suppliers directories to give members clarity to make an informed decision on purchasing.
Members are paying for information, factual information, not cheap gimicks like that useless Product Researching Tool, I call it the 75% tool. Seriously, that type of thing is something anyone can offer, but it doesn't provide members with value. Providing real factual supplier information is what will deliver value, and is what members have a right to expect.
Big chance here to make the Salehoo community a guiding light on the net, please don't waste that opportunity and let it become just another money making excerise that doesn't deliver what it promises.
It's fine for members to take a personal interest and defend Salehoo when they feel that it is under attack for misguided reasons, but Salehoo itself has to step up to the plate and make sure we as members have something to defend!
Ok, maybe I got out of the wrong side of bed this morning, but seriously........everyone knows there are areas that need some serious work here, the question is, is Salehoo ready to do that work to provide its community with something truly valuable for their membership fees?
Salehoo is losing credibility. Haha.
I am a new member, and what i read about Salehoo holdme back and start suspecting my search even i was told that i will be in a land of dream having a dozen of trusted supplier and no worry for any middelman or scammers. This is my first week using Salehoo, please can you help me more with the best process not to be a victim of any deciving supplier.
And yes, I myself aren't sure CKB products is the cheapest.

I'm new to salehoo and I join salehoo to find suppliers that was able to offer genuine product at wholesale prices but in stead i only come accross discount retailers
Sorry, but business is business, be it offline or online, it makes very little difference, and without at least some basic business knowledge the chances of success are extremely limited.
I think a lot of members would benefit more from leaning some business basics, rather than looking for invisible suppliers, and their magic money making products. These types of skills would at least inform them of what is realistic, and what is simply fantasy!
If you've checked it.... did you realize they look 90% the same (10% goes to colours and ads)?
There are plenty more out there in the directory... continously fooling people with their 5 star ratings which came from blur lack of research members.
They should be removed from the directory. Let's hunt them down one by one. I've spotted 2. But there must be more.
Cheers. Save yourself from this scam.
This may sound offensive but somehow I have a feeling that some featured suppliers are featured not because they are reliable, cheap and good in quality but because they paid to be featured. I wouldn't say it's wrong, but just that it has to be the best to be featured.
