Buyer Arranges Shipping - General Principles

If an auction lists "Buyer Arranges Shipping" this means that you are responsible for shipping the product from the seller's facility to yours. We encourage that all bidders review the FAQs of each site and the shipping details prior to bidding so they are familiar with the seller's shipping policies before you win an order.

If you do not already have a carrier, B-Stock has partnered with several different shipping partners. Please visit our Logistics & Fulfillment page to review the services they offer. Your Bid Won email will include a link to Freight Quote, who will then work to provide you an accurate quote that is as close as possible to the original estimate. 

For mobile sites that require Buyer Arranges Shipping, sellers will generally allow you to use your FedEx and UPS account numbers or labels. However, this is not guaranteed for all shipments, so B-Stock strongly encourages you to read the FAQs and Shipping Details on each auction page prior to bidding.

Once the order is marked as paid, you will receive shipping instructions, including the seller's contact information in most cases. Please refer to your order paid email. 

Most "Buyer Arranges Shipping" auctions of one pallet or more will have a shipping estimate provided by Freight Quote. This estimate is calculated based on the distance between your zip code and the seller's, number of pallets, pallet dimensions, shipping weight, and several other attributes that may vary for each buyer.
