Lampoon review: The largest online independent magazine retailer in the UK

Newsstand Magazines stock all publications and send them directly to clients very fast – at least in the UK – also delivering worldwide. In other words, if you order before 3pm a copy in stock you should see that the next morning. Clients are also able to search among thousands of current magazines covers from all over the world and receive updates on new magazine issues.

At the same time, this flexibility applies to publishers. If it’s true that this online newsagent works mainly with consumer products, Newsstand Magazines commits also with independent looking for fulfillment service and offering different options that go till online retailing, meaning that publishers only have to worry about creating the publication.

As for packaging options, Newsstand Magazines provides different possibilities always remaining engaged with the planet. They only fully recycle through recyclable packaging. Looking to the future, their story shows how being able to understand the market and its evolution is crucial. Nevertheless, new challenges are just around the corner.
