Shipping and Handling


Sellers are responsible for sourcing, fulfilling and shipping products to customers. Houzz operates using a flat-rate shipping model, which can be set per product and per order.

The following guidelines apply:

  • Seller must ensure products are packaged for safe transit and that goods arrive in excellent condition.
  • Seller must provide accurate shipping estimates on a per-product basis, if applicable.
  • Seller must print and include the Houzz packing slip in each product shipment.
  • Seller must include all Houzz-supplied packaging materials in each product shipment.
  • Seller must not include any promotional materials with the package.
  • Seller must apply a minimum service of curbside for all freight orders. 
  • Seller must provide legitimate tracking information.
