How Long Does StockX Take to Ship? – Full Guide

You’ve made an order through StockX and you’re wondering how long will it take to ship.

As always when it comes to deliveries there are a number of factors at play here.

Let’s take a look…

Summary: How Long Does StockX Take to Ship?

StockX states that it aims to deliver items to the buyer within 7 to 12 business days. This delivery window includes the time it takes the seller to send the item to StockX for authentication before it is dispatched to the buyer’s address.

Because StockX is a platform for selling items, and there is a stringent process of authentication and verification before sold items are sent to the buyer, there is a longer delivery time than you might expect from other eCommerce platforms.

That being said, StockX still aims to deliver sold items within 7 – 12 days.

Considering this delivery window includes the time it takes the seller to ship the item to StockX for this verification process, it is actually relatively fast.

The nature of goods on StockX (in many cases being of high value and rare), it is very important that items are cleared as genuine and that the buyer is getting exactly what they ordered.

The time that it takes StockX to verify sold items is short as the 7 – 12 business days also include any international shipments too.

I Bought My Item Over 12 Days Ago & it Hasn’t Arrived Yet!?

If almost two weeks pass and your StockX order still hasn’t arrived, you will understandably become frustrated.

StockX has one explanation for this outcome.

New Releases

If the item you have purchased has only just been released onto the market, there will be an additional wait time while the item is shipped from the retailer to the seller and then to StockX.

While this does seem like an inefficient delivery chain, it is just the nature of the beast.

If sellers are selling items directly from the retailer and then using StockX as a sales platform, the goods will pass through these separate hands before being dispatched to the buyer.

At the same time, this is the strength of StockX; you can be confident that the goods are genuine.

However, the process of delivery can take longer as a result of these precautions.

That being said, if this scenario is taking place (i.e. the seller is receiving items from a retailer), StockX state that the estimated delivery window will be declared during the order process, prior to you confirming your Bid or Buy Now purchase.

Seller Delays

Another potential reason your item is late is that the seller failed to send it to StockX in a reasonable short time.

The good news is, StockX will have a record of when you made the purchase, and when it arrived at StockX for verification… if there has been a delay in this process, they will make efforts to mitigate it so that delivery is completed ASAP.

You will need to contact StockX to make inquiries in this case.

I am a Seller, How Long do I have to Ship to StockX?

StockX has strict guidelines for sellers and you can visit the relevant webpage here.

However, As a general rule, Sellers have two working days to ship sales.

The exceptions that StockX allows are connected to what I have mentioned above, scenarios where new release items have to arrive from the retailer first.

StockX states that:

  • Sneakers sold on the release day have one (1) additional working day to ship (3 days total)
  • Supreme items sold on the release day have three (3) additional working days to ship (5 days total).
  • KAWS releases sold on the release day may have up to ten (10) additional working days to ship (12 days total)

I recommend that you visit the StockX website for more information on this.

I have Ordered KAWS, How Long Will StockX Take to Ship?

As you can see from the above guidelines to sellers of KAWS, the allowance of up to 12 days to ship the items to StockX for authentication, means that a buyer can wait up to 16 – 18 business days to receive their order.

Note that this is the maximum delivery window you should expect, and again details will have been provided during the order process.

However, if you are experiencing delivery delays for longer than this on your KAWs order, you should contact StockX for details.
