There are quite a few online sellers of sparklers, whether sold direct, drop shipped from an outlet or from a wholesaler. However, one place you won’t find sparklers is on Amazon. In this brief article we explain why that is.
Selling on Amazon can obviously be very lucrative, however there are many items that are restricted such as perfumes or aerosols while other products are outright banned such as firecrackers and sparklers. These policies are clearly defined here. For those that do not have a seller central account to view that link below is a screenshot (12.09.2019).
But why is Amazon prohibiting the sale of sparklers? We’ve uncovered several reasons described below:
- Sparklers are considered Hazmat and fall into a weird shipping category that restricts shipping to ground only. Amazon doesn’t like to restrict products to a certain type of shipping ie, products should be able to be shipped via air for fastest delivery. We’ve discussed why sparklers aren’t allowed on planes in a previous post.
- Sparklers are not allowed via USPS shipping. This is a severe restraint for Amazon for last mile delivery.
- Sparklers aren’t allowed in some jurisdictions where Amazon has warehouses making storage a legal hassle.
There you have it, Amazon simply does not want to deal with the headache of selling sparklers on their platform. So if you’re looking for sparklers for your wedding, birthday, July 4th celebration or simply to have on hand for parties you don’t need to look further than here.

I waited until the last minute to order 36” sparklers for my wedding. This website was the only one I found with stock and they had them to me in a week!
Sparklers were perfect for the bride and groom entrance to the dance at my daughters wedding. They lasted long enough for bride and groom to come down line twice and bridal party also. Made for some great pictures
We got the 36 in ones and they were quick to light, last a long time. We were able to make multiple passes for beautiful wedding shots!
The 36” sparklers arrived on time and in excellent shape.
My sparklers arrived on time in perfect condition and made the perfect ending to my wedding. The sparkler pics were some of my favorites. Highly recommend!!!
Lasted a long time! Loved them!
No problems or issue! Purchase was easy and delivery was quick.
These were terrific sparklers for a wedding! They shipped on time and lasted a long time for the bride and groom to leave! Would use this company again! Melissa M
Product as described, excellent communication…thank you so much!
This made the exit of our wedding absolutely stunning!! They lasted so long we were able to really take our time during our exit instead of having to run through! Just make sure you have LOTS of lighters to ensure everyone gets their sparkler lit at the same time. BEAUTIFUL!!
This company is the best! I inquired about a rush order and they assured if I paid for expidited shipping it would arrive in time. I placed my order, paid for expidited shipping. Wedding Sparklers shipped almost immediately and then the ball was in the hands of FedEx. Sadly the package was quite delayed and I did not recieve it in time. I emailed and asked if the shipment could be return as I no longer needed the sparklers since the wedding had happened!! They apologized and gave me a full refund even though I had not yet receieved the sparklers. They said they would deal with FedEx. I did get them about a week later and plan on returning them as I was not seeking a freeby. That they covered what was really not their mistake (FedEx is obviously having issues) is some of the best customer service I have experienced. The wedding was beautiful even without the sparkler send off!! I would recomend this company and if I have the need for more wedding sparklers I would not hesitate to use them again.
Great photo op for our wedding. Quality sparklers.
Would recommend to anyone! Was perfect at our wedding.
Perfect length and lasted forever!
I purchased these for a sparkler exit for my daughter's wedding and they were amazing! So bright and long lasting. The 36" length made sure everyone's stayed lit for long after bride and groom went through. Buy the torches also!
