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.

We got married the night after hurricane Delta tore through central Louisiana, tons of humidity, and the sparklers still lit perfect and burned long enough for us to run through them 3 times for the photographer!! Amazing product, fast shipping, no smoke, and all around perfect

I ordered these last minute for my wedding and they came in on time! Also they had a consistent burn and did not sputter or go out! Would definitely buy again!
Fast shipping. Very good responsiveness by seller when a wrong product was received. They made it right, and shipped the replacements in short order, in time for the event. The black cat sparklers were easy to light and great quality. The best type, with secondary sparks. Non-smoking made it best for photography.
These worked great for my wedding however the venue workers mentioned them not being very easy to light. Overall our sparkler exit went pretty quickly and looked amazing.
This product was just what we wanted for our daughters wedding. The order came quickly and the sparklers were great. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.
