7 reasons to work with Shot Darts
Darts is in our DNA – Shot has been selling, marketing and growing the game of darts in the USA since 1970, and brought the world the game-changing Bandit board in 1992. We sponsor US players like Chris White and Joe Chaney, while running a young guns program to nurture the next generation. Each year we exhibit at the BCA Expo in USA and ISPO the World’s largest trade show held in Munich Germany, and regularly promote Shot Darts at global Dart Tournaments. All this experience means you can trust that your customers will love and buy Shot products.
We make it easy – We ship to 70+ countries worldwide, so you can be assured of great shipping rates and a seamless delivery. We ship both direct ex-factory from Shot Darts in New Zealand or from one of our global distribution centres. So if you’re in the US, you’ll typically receive your delivery in just three days. Order and reorder when it suits you, and minimise the risks of carrying more stock than you need, or committing to large orders.
World-beating selection – With more than 400 lines, we’ve got darts covered from the home rec room player to pro level, in both steel and soft tip with universal-grip barrels. We’re constantly developing exciting new ranges to attract young players through engaging storytelling, fresh barrel grips, amazing artwork and cool flight designs. We conduct regular consumer research to make sure our products target and work with the right market segments from beginner to pro, and everyone in between.
Ordering is quick and easy – Our secure trade ordering website is as simple to use as your favourite online store. It lets you filter, easily add to cart and save the products you order most often – for easy stock top ups in minutes. Place an order and we process and ship it the same (business) day. And by setting and enforcing MAP and RRP, we strive to offer a pricing structure that’s fair to customers while protecting your valuable margin.
Crowd-pleasing value – Our darts are designed and manufactured right here at our Shot factory in New Zealand, so we can guarantee great value and strict quality control and the benefits of speed of manufacturing and delivery. We have 100% control over our manufacturing process, and can tailor packages to suit your needs – with helpful advice for your first order, and ongoing support to give you the products that are right for your market.

We supply quality images and engaging, SEO friendly copy for web listings, banners and social media posts. And we’ll tailor specifications to suit your e-commerce needs or promote your store as the local ‘Home of Shot Darts’.

Ordering from Shot Darts:
It’s easy to order from Shot Darts – they have an online wholesale trade portal that is easy to access and displays the full range with pricing and images, so all I need to do is add to cart and confirm. If I need help, the Shot sales team are very easy to contact and are helpful. Shot Darts sent us a free in-store display merchandiser that allow us to hang all the Shot darts and accessory items together. The merchandiser stands out in our store, which is great. We have been impressed with how Shot Darts has sold and been embraced by our customers.
The designs are unique compared to other brands, so draw a lot of attention compared to other brands. Although they are on the other side of the world, they are easy to contact if need and we receive regular contact from them. The team from Shot Darts has visited on two occasions which was great as we were able to put a face to a name and made it easier to contact them in the future. We have also been able to meet them at the BCA show where we get to catch up and see the latest product in person. Our order process is efficient and we haven’t had any issues to date.
Shot Darts has provided us with support across many parts of the business, most recently they sponsored a local player with a shirt and a set of darts. The shirt had our business logo on it so was great free advertising for us with the local dart community. Also, they provide web banners that are great for promoting ourselves on social media as the local home of Shot Darts. Shot Darts runs a great monthly promo plan where they provide branded gifts with orders that we can hand out to our customers with purchases. They have great shipping rates which is cool given they are based in New Zealand!
