How to Buy Flameless Candles in Bulk
Flameless candles use light bulbs and batteries instead of fire. (spare light bulbs image by Alison Bowden from

The next time you are planning any party, wedding or reunion consider using flameless candles that you have purchased in bulk. Instead of having a wick that is set on fire, flameless candles are operated by a battery and light bulb. Fear of candle wax getting on tablecloths, fires being started and kids being burnt are reduced if not completely wiped away with the use of flameless candles. It is possible to purchase flameless candles with the best of normal candles: appearance, scent and light.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Set a budget and begin comparing cost per candle. Depending on the size of the candle and whether it is scented--as of 2010--you can purchase a single, flameless candle for around £1.30 to £6. When you buy in bulk, you want to make sure that the price per candle is less than what you would pay for an individual candle.

  2. 2

    Write down prices for bulk cases of candles listed on websites like Buy Flameless Candles, Lamp Lust, 100 Candles and Glade. Find the price per candle by dividing the price of the bulk candles by the number of candles included in the box. For example, if you buy a bulk lot of 100 candles for £57 you will be paying 89 cents per candle. You know it is a decent price because you will be paying less than 60p per candle versus if you bought single candles for £1.30 a piece.

  3. 3

    Purchase the bulk, flameless candles from an online retailer. Follow the instructions on the website to checkout. In general, most websites require a buyer to create an account by inserting his e-mail address and a password. Many sites also ask for the buyer’s personal information: name, address, e-mail address and phone number. Finally, a page requiring payment will appear. Insert your credit card information or PayPal account information to complete the purchase. You will receive a confirmation of purchase e-mail.

  4. 4

    Look for bulk retailers in your local phone book and newspaper. Call them to see if they have what you would like to purchase in stock. Figure out the price per candle and decide if it is a purchase you would like to complete. If so, drive to the business, look at the merchandise and pay for it.
