When it comes to purchasing lanyards or even lanyard card holders, where do you think to explore first; the high street or online? At the moment going out to your local shopping centre may not be the most accessible option for you, therefore online retailers may be your only option. Not to worry though there is an infinite supply of lanyards on third party websites and e-commerce sites.
Take Amazon, for instance, they are a global marketplace; selling millions of products a day through their buying and selling platform. If you search up on Amazon ‘Lanyards’ an eye watering 10,000+ listings are found instantaneously. They can range in quantities of as little as three for prices starting at £2.99 all the way up to 100 pairs for £30.00+.
They are not just standard black or white lanyards either; they can be brought in an array of colours and sizes (depending on if they are for children- therefore shorted or for adult wear). The children’s lanyards are very colourful with cartoon buckles for adjusting the sizes.
If you are after personalised or customizable lanyards then you are also in luck; there are endless e-commerce sites and online shops who can accommodate your requests. Again, if you search up ‘personalized lanyards’ into your search engine nearly half a million results show up. Ebay and Amazon are both placed near the top of the search; in between specialist online websites who specialise in lanyards customization and personalization.
Websites like www.justlanyards.co.uk and www.pcd.co.uk are just two of the top searches when looking for customisable lanyards. Depending on how many lanyards you need and in what variations (colours, sizes or personalisation) they are considerably cheaper when purchased in bulk.
The websites that have just been mentioned, as well as Ebay and Amazon can all accommodate bulk and large quantity orders very easily. On third-party listing sites like Amazon and Ebay if you are looking for 300 standard black lanyards with metal clasps then Ebay and Amazon can accommodate your request.
An order like that would end up costing you around £59.97 on Amazon which is an excellent price which also includes free delivery for Prime members.
However, if you were to go out to browse your local high street or shopping centre finding a bargain like that would be hard to find. For instance, in your local WH.Smith one single lanyard is priced at £3.99. This may be ideal if you are only interested in purchasing just one for your own personal use but if you needed to buy in bulk then perhaps a high street retailer like a chain stationary shop may not be the most cost effective. Ryman office supplies are also selling lanyards and badges, slightly cheaper to WH.Smiths but still £2.99 for just one.
If you are out in your local shopping centre specifically but just one for yourself then these would be two excellent retailers to venture to; your purchase will be honoured with a fair refund policy should you not be happy with your purchase. However, it is common that lanyards orders are in fact bulk orders; therefore the high street may not be the most cost effective. It can save you a lot of money to purchase lanyards online, especially if you are a business owner or event host and you require large quantities on a regular or continuous basis. Even a single one off purchase of 50+ lanyards would save you money.
When ordering anything online it is always worth looking at the retailers returns policies and refund process should you not be happy with your order of lanyards. Online retailers like Amazon and Ebay offer money back and returns on orders if you are not happy; all payments are protected through their platform and you should not face any issues if you need to request a refund or flag any issues you have with quality or delivery.
The one factor that puts people off ordering anything online can be the delivery cost and time; online retailers are offering excellent delivery rates. Amazon offers a lot of free delivery and even next day options as a free Prime member benefit on thousands of their products. Therefore, if you are in need of a large order of lanyards very urgently then always check online shops delivery expectancy and fees.
You can find some excellent bargains online in little to no time at all; if you know how many lanyards you need and who soon you need them then you can browse through thousands of online retailers until you find the best deal for you. Just remember, most of the time, buying in bulk will end up cheaper than having to purchase smaller quantities of goods on a regular basis.
