Being that Salehoo is not a direct supplier and simply offers its members directories of wholesalers, there is little control on the pricing which the suppliers will charge. There are several report of new members of Salehoo who are unable to navigate the sheer volume of information about inventory and suppliers without finding products without a significant mark-up (and subsequent lower profit margin).
Little information exists on Salehoo’s site about shipping costs and policies (e.g. blind shipping), which may be due to the fact that their supplier base is so diverse that they cannot report on each individual supplier.
