Wire Payment

1stDibs accepts wire payments for orders over $5,000 USD.

Place the Order

  1. When viewing an item on 1stDibs, click Purchase, or Make an Offer to the seller for a negotiated price.
  2. In Checkout, first complete the Address and Shipping steps, as necessary.
    In the Payment step, select the Bank Account payment method.
  3. Click or tap on the Wire Transfer link.
  4. Provide your billing address as it will appear on the invoice.
  5. Complete the checkout process as normal.

Pay with Wire

Once the seller confirms your order, you will be notified via email and an invoice will be made available. Wire payment instructions can be accessed from this email, or from the Orders page in your account.

Wire transfers can take up to 3-5 business days to receive. Once payment has been received, you will be notified that your order has been confirmed, and your seller can begin the process of shipping the item to you.
