Helium 10’s New Trusted Partner Directory is Finally Here!
As Helium 10 grows, we are determined to find more ways to offer additional value to our customers. After giving the (sometimes complicated and confusing) online ecosystem a great deal of thought, we identified the need for a sophisticated place to identify TRUSTED marketplace partners in the many fields that support Amazon and other e-commerce sellers.
It also got me thinking that selling on Amazon (and by extension, finding auxiliary online business services) is no walk in the park… it’s a drive on the beach.
Off the coast of central California, there is a wide-open stretch of beach where cars are allowed to drive right up alongside the Pacific Ocean. My father had taken me as a kid, cautiously navigating the sand and even teasing the waterline with the tires of the car. It felt liberating to strip away the lane lines of the highway and go where we pleased.
Fast forward to my mid-twenties and I’m back at the same beach, bumping along the shoreline and trying to impress my girlfriend, proving I knew exactly what I was doing. After all, why wouldn’t I? I’d done this a million times before. I wasn’t going to get stuck.
Yeah. Famous last words.
Why am I talking about this? Well, because as I soon found out that day on the beach, eventually… everyone needs help.
That’s why we’re proud to announce the newest Helium 10 resource designed to put Amazon sellers like you in touch with the professionals qualified to tackle some of the more head-scratching aspects of running an online business.
Introducing: The Trusted Partner Directory
Hiring a reliable designer for your brand logo or finding a quality freight forwarder to help with international shipping can feel a bit like playing blindfolded darts in a dark closet.
That’s why we’ve rounded up some of the most trusted e-commerce service providers in the world and placed them conveniently at your fingertips. We figure, our Amazon seller tools are available to you around the clock and all in one place… shouldn’t your outsourcing partners get the same treatment?
The Trusted Partner Directory allows you to filter companies by category, location, and language to help you find what you’re looking for today, not after hours of digging through every oversaturated corner of the internet.
Our current trusted vendors are available in more than a dozen countries and speak just as many languages. The best part? The Trusted Partner Directory will only grow from here!

This is Just the Beginning…
Like a magical e-commerce beanstalk, if you look away from Helium 10 for just one second, chances are something has grown or added features. The Trusted Partner Directory is no different.
Coming soon – Reviews!
Helium 10 has a strict vetting process – everyone in the Trusted Partner Directory is someone we trust to do right by our users. But that doesn’t mean feedback isn’t important. Whether your experience with a vendor was awful or awesome, we plan to give you a space to share it. This not only helps other sellers make important outsourcing decisions, but it also helps us get valuable feedback on the vendors we’re giving this massive platform to!
Interested in being part of the directory, as a vendor?
We are taking applications to be a part of the Trusted Partner Directory!
It doesn’t matter if your business works with 8-figure sellers or you’re more of a solopreneur boutique agency, as long as you’re not engaging in any black hat or dishonest practices, you are eligible to apply!

Every Seller Deserves the “Phone-a-Friend” Lifeline
Covering your blind side, filling in the gaps, calling in an assist, call it what you will. 80% of being a good leader (and business owner) is knowing how to delegate and who to delegate to. We’re not advising that you outsource every facet of your e-commerce business, just a couple of the weak spots. The places where it looks like you might be able to do it yourself, but will most likely just end up stuck in the sand.
Take it from me, you’ll be glad to have the help.
