1stDibs has a dedicated phone line (646) 362-1146 for uShip carriers who need to contact or leave a voicemail regarding time-sensitive or urgent issues.



Mon – Fri: 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM EST


We ask that carriers continue to email [email protected] for ALL inquiries, regardless of urgency, as this allows the phone line to be reserved exclusively for high-priority issues.


See below for more details.


To ensure your assigned 1stDibs Specialist is able to properly address your inquiry, we ask that carriers leave a detailed voicemail with the following information:

  • Carrier name
  • 1stDibs order ID
  • Detailed reason for the call
  • Best callback number

Please ensure all of this information is communicated to 1stDibs. A failure to do so could prevent their team from promptly addressing your call.

When to Email

For the majority of inquiries, we ask that carriers email 1stDibs instead. This allows the phone line to be reserved for extremely time-sensitive requests.


Here are a few examples of common carrier inquiries that should be sent via email:

  • ALL Payment Release inquiries (regardless of carrier using eBOL vs. documentation emails)
    • Moving forward, payment release requests sent by phone or voicemail will not be processed, especially if requests are sent same-day as delivery or multiple times a day.
    • We ask for email inquiries on late payments, particularly for late payment releases via eBOL.
  • Damages that occur in transit
    • 1stDibs requires documentation of any damages to be notated in the eBOL
  • Booking negotiations or issues with a shipment being auto-booked by another carrier
    • Such issues should be submitted to uShip or via email with uShip Partner Support cc’d
  • Post-booking changes, modifications, or accessorials (change of address, qty changes, assembly, etc)
    • All changes to cost require uShip involvement for COMP shipment creation. Such requests should always be sent via email with uShip Partner Support cc’d
  • Feedback for seller or client interactions should always be sent via email.
    • 1stDibs DOES ask for a call if the interaction is serious or confrontational in nature, followed up with an email
