I am looking for a single word to describe someone who distributes flyers.

Distributor doesn't seem right, part-timer may not be true, labourer is too generic. Is there a job title for such a role?

  • in the business it is box stuffer, letterbox stuffer or just walker – Fattie Sep 12 '14 at 9:00
  • A single word? Annoying. – Dan Bron Sep 12 '14 at 9:19
  • lol cute nickname. – Fattie Sep 12 '14 at 12:14
  • a flyer supplier? – Rusty Tuba Dec 24 '14 at 17:37
  • I would say "litterer". – Hot Licks Jan 26 '17 at 4:38

Leaflet Distributor seems like your best option.

This company uses the term Leaflet Distributor

While all these advertised jobs also use the same term: Leaflet Distributor.


Leafleter is one possibility.

a person who hands out leaflets

You could also say leaflet distributor or flyer distributor.

  • Maybe it's the coffee, but I really want this to be leafleteer. It sounds like a way cooler job. – Gerger Dec 24 '14 at 17:39

    Especially if they travel in trios. – Rusty Tuba Dec 24 '14 at 17:40

So leafleter sounds good. Infact here's a formal post for such a job opening.

A crazy but fancy (albeit generic) alternative can be Street Marketer.


At least one employer does indeed use the word distributor.

We are always looking for good adult distributors...
What should I do if I'm interested in becoming a leaflet or flyer distributor?

This does seem to be an intuitive choice:

  1. a person or thing that distributes

  2. a wholesaler or middleman engaged in the distribution of a category of goods, esp to retailers in a specific area

[Collins via dictionary.com]

The work itself is delivery.

Is leaflet delivery a full time job?
