Our Shipping is Different

If you can wait a little while, you can save a bundle

Here's how it works:

Then we deliver the items to you

Most items ship from brand partners to our warehouse first, and then ship from our warehouse to you. This takes a little more time, but allows us to save money and pass the savings onto you.

Some items are already in our warehouse, and don't have to wait to start their journey home to you. These items are marked with a rocket icon. rocket icon You can choose to ship them out from our warehouse sooner than the rest of your order for a small extra fee.

Some items don't ship to our warehouse at all — they just ship directly from the brand partner to you. We'll let you know when this is the case at checkout.

Occasionally, an item may take more time to ship to Zulily's warehouse or directly to your doorstep. Items that typically take longer to ship include, but are not limited to:

  • Made to order and personalized items
  • Items shipping from an international location
  • Seasonal products like live plants
  • Magazine subscriptions


When will my order be delivered?

Delivery times vary, and depend on a couple things:

  • Where the item is shipping from
  • Whether the item starts its journey from our warehouse or our brand partner's
  • The shipping option you choose at checkout

Because our items ship from so many places, we offer estimates for when an item ships out from our warehouse, vs. when it will be delivered to you.

Items shipping from a Zulily warehouse in the US typically arrive 5-7 days after they leave the warehouse. Items that ship from an international location typically arrive 9-14 days after they leave the warehouse.

Look in checkout for your order's estimated ship-out date. We'll email you if your package is going to ship out more than 3 days outside our estimate.

Does Zulily offer free shipping?

Yes, Zulily typically offers free shipping on successive orders within a designated window of time. Usually, the free shipping window lasts all day or for the weekend. Zulily may also extend its weekend free shipping window to include holidays.

Here’s how it works: if you pay for shipping on your first order, then successive eligible orders placed during the designated window of time receive the lowest-priced shipping option for free.

All orders must be made using the same Zulily account and must be shipped to the same name and address within the US. Some items aren’t eligible for free shipping & handling and are excluded from all shipping & handling promotions. These will be noted at checkout.

What are Zulily's shipping options?

Zulily offers two possible shipping options at checkout.

Ship items when ready: We wait until all items in your order arrive in our warehouse before shipping them out to you. And whenever possible, we group them together in the same shipment.

  • Our lowest-priced shipping option
  • May use fewer boxes
  • Applies to orders placed during free shipping windows. Example: If you place one order on Friday during your free shipping window that can ship out from the warehouse in 5 days and another order on Sunday that can also ship out from the warehouse in 5 days, you should expect your order to ship out from the warehouse with both items on the following Friday (5 days after the second order)

Ship rocket items sooner: Have any rocket items in your order? Items with a rocket ship icon are currently in our warehouse, and ready to start their journey home to you. For a small extra fee, we'll ensure they leave our warehouse in just 3-5 days, before the rest of your order.

  • Costs a little more money
  • May use more boxes
  • Includes expedited options
  • Only applies to orders shipping to US addresses (including Alaska, Hawaii, US territories and APO/DPO/FPO addresses)
Can I speed my order up?

If your order contains rocket ship items, you can ship those items out sooner for a small extra fee. There are two speeds available for rocket items:

  • STANDARD: generally arrives in 14-15 days
  • FASTER: delivery date shown at checkout

At this time, Zulily does not offer expedited shipping options for products shipping to or from an international location.

Can I ship internationally?
