Newsstand is the original online print magazine retailer in the UK and remains the largest in the world servicing 1.5 million customers in 249 countries with millions of magazines and proudly works with over 200 independent publishers.

Founded in 1898 as a stationer, Newsstand has grown to become a world class distribution and fulfilment business for eCommerce and the largest online, independent magazine retailer.

We pioneered a unique subscription management service and bespoke technology for publishers in parallel with pioneering single copy sales online which our ongoing growth clearly demonstrates the continued need for within the industry.

Unique in carrying out all our own sales and distribution, we have acquired substantial export expertise and now offer everything from storage, world class logistics, eCommerce, retail expertise, marketing and export tax solutions.

In other words, we do paperwork, you do the creative work and produce a great magazine.

Newsstand provides a custom solution for publishers, whether you’re simply looking to be stocked on our website, advice for difficult exports or for a fully tracked, integrated fulfilment service for single copy and subscriptions.
