Shipping Quotes

Any information around shipping quotes can be found on the item details page, next to the shipping icon, along with a link to view additional details or other quotes if they are available, as rates often vary by destination and complexity. 



If you don't see a quote, the seller may have not quoted shipping to your specific location, or you may need to log in to see tailored quotes to your area. You can also directly ask the seller by clicking, "Request a quote."


The "Request a quote" feature is address specific, So it will prompt you to enter your full shipping address.



Requesting a Quote


If the shipping cost is not listed on the item details page, you may still submit your order and a shipping quote will be provided within 24 to 48 hours.

  • If you accept the quote, your order will be confirmed and the item will be shipped to you. If you reject the quote, your order will be canceled and you will not be charged. 
  • If the seller provides free shipping, your order will be automatically confirmed and the item will be shipped to you.


Calculating Shipping Quotes


Shipping quotes are determined by dimensional weight, which is based on the item size, not the actual item weight, and shipping distance. 1stDibs passes the direct cost for shipping to the customer. There is no mark up on these costs.

Pre-quoted shipping is based on dimensional weight and covers broader geographic areas. This includes shipping to the entire continental US and the rest of the world. This cost is often subsidized, as the actual cost can be higher than the pre-quoted prices.
