Survival para cord at wholesale from Safety Technology. Imagine being out on a five-day hiking trip when the cord that keeps your sleeping bag fastened to your backpack breaks. What do you do? If you are packing one of the paracord options from Safety Technology, you’re all set. You just cut a new piece of cord and tie your sleeping bag back on. Having spare paracord on hand is as valuable to survivalists as duct tape is to DIY homeowners.
A Little Bit about Paracord
Before you start selling paracord products, it might be helpful to know a little bit more about this amazing rope. Also known as parachute cord, paracord was originally developed as a suspension rope for parachutes. As such, it was designed to be tough, sturdy, flexible, and lightweight.
Paracord is a nylon rope consisting of an inner core protected by an outer sheath of nylon. The inner core gives it strength and flexibility while the outer sheath protects the core from damage. As for the sheath itself, it is braided nylon consisting of a number of different interwoven strands. The interweaving provides a clean and smooth texture without compromising strength.
So, just how strong is paracord? Strong enough to be the de facto standard for all parachutes – be they military or privately owned. It is also tough enough for plenty of general-purpose uses. As an example, the crew of the 1997 82nd space shuttle mission used paracord to make repairs on the Hubble telescope.
If paracord is strong enough for space missions and military use, it is strong enough for general purpose use among survivalists. Fortunately for retailers, we carry a number of the paracord options that sell very well among survivalists, campers, and people who just love the great outdoors.
Sell Paracord Products as Tinder
The first thing you might think of in terms of paracord use is as a rope to tie things together. That certainly is one option. However, you can sell paracord products that are marketed as tinder for starting a fire. We carry a number of different options. One is a bracelet, another is a zipper tie, and yet another is sold as a continuous rope.
Paracord works very well as tinder because it burns hot but slowly. It doesn’t take much to ignite it either, so it works well whether a person is using a flint and steel or a hand-held fire starter. And by the way, we sell those too.
You can market paracord products for tinder by explaining how easy they are to carry. Put one in your pocket or wear it around your wrist. Stick it in your backpack or waist pack. And because it is made of nylon, it doesn’t quickly absorb water unless you stretch it out to let water in. That makes it a very good tinder even on those wet days.
Sell Paracord Products for Survival
Our paracord options include a unique self-defense product called the Monkey Fist Key Chain. You can navigate over to the product page to get a full description of it. In a nutshell though, this device is a self-defense device wrapped in paracord. Underneath the rope is a metal ball strong enough to crack glass. Use your imagination to figure out its self-defense capabilities.
Safety Technology carries another paracord product that doubles as an emergency survival kit. Once again, you can go to that product’s page for a full description. Just know that the kit includes a lot of small items that could prove to be lifesavers in the event one of your customers was alone in the wilderness.
Selling Paracord as Utility Rope
You may have customers interested in paracord products even though they are not survivalists or campers. That is not a problem. Paracord works well as an all-purpose utility rope that is great to have around the house. Your customers can use it as a laundry line in the backyard. It can be used to hang things in the garage or lash pieces of wood together.
Wherever your customers need a general-purpose rope, they can rely on paracord to get the job done. Remember, astronauts have used it in outer space. The military uses it for all sorts of general purposes. If it is good enough for them, it is equally good for your customers.
Our Wholesale Paracord Options
You will notice that our paracord inventory includes a number of products that are especially appealing to people who spend a lot of time outdoors. If you visit the individual product pages, you’ll also notice a suggested retail price for each one. That is not the price you pay. As a Safety Technology dealer, you would buy your paracord products from us at wholesale. The suggested retail price is what you might charge your customers.
We sell wholesale paracord options alongside the rest of our survival gear. This includes things like knives, fire starters, and solar-powered products. But we don’t stop there. Our inventory includes hundreds of products covering everything from non-lethal self-defense to surveillance equipment.
All our products are sold at low wholesale prices designed to support you, the dealer. You buy from us at wholesale then turn around and make a profit by selling at retail. We both win. At the end of the day, that’s what this is all about, right?
Selling Online and In Person
Selling paracord products alongside others you choose from the Safety Technology product list is a matter of finding the right venues that allow you to target the right audience. Needless to say, there are a lot of options. Consider online sales, as an example.
There are so many ways to sell online that it would be impossible to list them all here. We have seen dealers do quite well on established retail sites like eBay and Amazon. We have seen other dealers get the ball rolling by selling through online classifieds. You don’t even have to set up your own website, though you can if you want to.
Some of our most successful leaders have either built their own sites from scratch or let us build sites for them. The advantage of having your own website is that it is a lot easier to sell and manage hundreds of products simultaneously. Selling that many different items on eBay or Amazon can be a bit difficult to keep track of.
Online selling is obviously not your only option. You can take your product list right to the people by selling in person. Sell to your neighbors, co-workers, family members, and friends. Choose a few other items to go along with your paracord options and rent a table at the next community event in your local area.
If you are the flea market type, there are opportunities there as well. Or maybe you’re looking to open a retail outlet in a vacant storefront you’ve had your eye on. That works. The thing to understand is that your ability to sell paracord products is limited only by your willingness to go out and find your audience.
We Dropship Paracord Items
We invite you to buy stock to be stored on your own premises. In fact, we offer even better wholesale pricing to dealers to purchase from us in bulk. Having said all that, you can get started as a Safety Technology dealer without buying anything. You do this by starting with our dropshipping service.
Dropshipping works like this:
- You start selling without purchasing and stocking any inventory.
- When a customer makes a purchase, you order the same products from us.
- We package the order and ship it directly to your customer on your behalf.
Dropshipping is one of the easiest ways to get started in this business. And just so you know, Safety Technology is the largest dropshipper in our industry. Perhaps the fact that we don’t charge extra for the service is one of the reasons dealers appreciate doing business with us.
When you dropship wholesale paracord options through us, we charge you the same wholesale price we would charge dealers stocking their own retail operations. There are no extra fees or hidden charges. You pay the wholesale price of the product plus the cost of shipping and packaging. And no, we do not mark up shipping and packaging. You pay what we pay.
