I checked out this site. It looks good, but I wanted to talk to someone who had used them before I invest the money. Thanks!

I wasted alot of money on them a year before I signed up with salehoo. I havent found 1 good supplier from them. Most of them
sell crafts and misc items I have no knowlege or interest in selling.
The majority of thier suppliers sell generic electronics I couldnt sell to a child.

I signed up with them a few years ago. They have suppliers for just about anything you can think of. They are backed by Ebay and are on Ebay Radio often. I personally have not found them to be useful for my business but this is just my opinion.

I have a worldwidebrands account and I haven't found them as useful than salehoo. I really have been looking at name brand clothing, accessories, and bags, and worldwidebrands does not have any suppliers of these items listed. Their reasoning is that there are so many fakes circulating that they would rather not go into that arena. Same with iPods, they do not have a wholesaler for them either. Some of the stuff i have found with their searches are interesting, but I strongly feel that salehoo is going to meet my needs better.

I have found them to be usefull -at the price i paid they should be , they had the dvd connections i was looking for but you need a business licenses and large minium purchase i am still debating on that -also found a great deal on inspired sunglasses and cheap toys and a few other things ..........The PROBLEM i have with them is the site is terrible to NAVIGATE they have everything listed piece by piece and seperately so it takes you 2 hours to navigate thru for 1 item -they will have 1 item listed in 20 different ways so kills alot of time .......So if you have alot of time i would reccomend them ...also there is no forum that i am aware of .

^you say they have the dvd connections..i did notice that myself, which is why i am seriously considering a membership. Can you please tell me, are their wholesale prices for dvds reasonable if i make a minimum required purchase? ie, what are their wholesale prices like? is it a reasonable 30-60% off retail, or just a few bucks off? And what are their wholesale prices like for all of their products in general? I am just trying to figure out if it is worth forkin' out the dough for a membership. Because, although they dont have most of the products i am looking for, i may still consider membership if they have reasonable wholesale prices for the couple of products that they do have. So if you can give me a sense of their wholesale prices, i would appreciate it. Thanks. Feel free to pm me.

I would save your money. The price is not worth it.

I still have not found anything good from this site. And yes this is the worst site to find anything quick. You think a big company like this didnt think to try and be more user friendly for searching thier database

Don't get me wrong WWB is a great source and they are highly recommended by Ebay. In fact Chris Malta is on the Ebay radio show quite a bit. With this all said you know you can trust their suppliers. I purchased the light wholesale package over a year ago and have never used a supplier from it once. Most all of the companies will require you to have a license and a lot the companies you have to contact to get wholesale pricing. The prices I have seen are not that great. I guess it just depends on what your looking for. I think you could save your money and find about the same here on Salehoo or my site.

I signed up and tried them out - but found absolutely no results for any search I did. I was looking particularly for Scrapbooking goodies as well as branded wear. Although the site is mostly crafts - the few sites that brought back anything remotely linked to Scrapbooking were expensive or no response received.

I did manage to find a few sites for DVDs and Games - however I received no response after submitting the forms.

Further - if you are not in the USA - forget it.

I had good experience with them overall, however I would not reccomend becoming a dropshipper.

It ends up costing over $3200 in the end to be a full member of simplX, and the place carries over 60,000,000 items, so it is a dropshipping business meant for retail store owners.

It wouldn't work for small business / entrepreneurs of which there is more of. The startup prices are far too high.

Folks the reality is that it costs alot of cash to work and sell online even as a dropshipper.. its no longer simplet o jump up and sell one item have it dropshipped and get rich. Its a crowded force market and you got to be shrewd and unique. Dropshipping is waste of time pretty much buy a small load of product then your in business and can call the shots. Thats the truth in the 2007 wholesale market

I have used Simplx, its not worth it, you get a X amount off the retail price which they rebate back to you. I.E. you buy an HP laptop from the HP retail store online they give a 2% rebate for buying that way, so your still no where near wholesale. 2% below retail and you have to wait 30 days for you rebate to show up so your still forking out all the money up front for nothing.
