We take pride in our assurance that every seller on 1stdibs offers their lowest prices on our site. If you see a seller listing an item for less somewhere else, let us know and we’ll match it. Know the details:
  • The lowest price guarantee only applies to offers in writing by the same seller for the exact same item. Please note, 1stdibs will determine the validity of the written price provided and whether it qualifies for price matching
  • To qualify, contact our Customer Support team and present the written offer in advance of your purchase, or within 7 days of submitting your order
  • We will deduct up to $5,000 per item from the price advertised on 1stdibs to match the seller’s written offer
  • 1stdibs reserves the right to update or modify the terms of this guarantee at any time

Buyer Protection

If your purchase doesn’t arrive as described, we want to make it right. But to qualify for assistance your purchase must meet the following criteria:
  • The order was placed online through our secure checkout
  • The item was significantly not as described, damaged in transit or never arrived
  • You reported the issue within 7 days of delivery date (or within 180 days of the purchase date if the item never arrived)

Buyer Protection does not apply if:

  • You are returning an accurately described item, outside of the seller’s stated return policy
  • You elected to arrange your own shipping or pick the item up in person, and the item was damaged at pickup or during shipping
  • You purchased the item directly from the seller (e.g. in store) without using our secure checkout
