Wire Payment

1stDibs is able to accept wire payments for any orders over $2,500 USD. If the item cost is over $2,500, a wire payment option will appear during checkout. A wire invoice will be presented to you after completing the check-out process and it will have all the necessary bank details in order for you to complete the payment.

For GBP wire transfers a UK bank account with sort code and account number is required. SWIFT transfers are not supported.

Pay with Wire

When sending a wire transfer, remember to factor in potential bank fees. These charges can vary significantly, affecting the total cost of your transfer. Be sure that the amount of your wire transfer after fees matches the total cost of the order plus bank fees.
