Most purchases are shipped from our warehouse in Memphis, to arrive within five business days from receipt of your order.
Rush Shipping and Processing
For an additional $15.00 per address, we can expedite delivery to most destinations. (Orders received by 3:00 p.m., Pacific time, Monday through Thursday arrive in two business days; orders placed Friday through Sunday arrive the following Tuesday.) We regret that this service is not available for some oversize items, out-of-stock items, items shipped directly from our vendor and items shipped outside the contiguous 48 states.
Special conditions sometimes apply to the delivery of oversize items, perishables or merchandise shipped directly from the vendor. You`ll find clarification of the shipping methods and times noted with the product description, as well as in your shopping cart once the item is added.
- When special shipping and processing conditions apply to a purchase, how can I estimate the arrival date?
- Oversize items typically take longer to deliver and sometimes require special treatment, such as our White Glove Delivery. Perishable items are shipped from the vendor to arrive within one week. Custom-manufactured items shipped directly from the vendor arrive within one to two weeks. If a special shipping and processing condition applies to an item, you`ll find clarification of the shipping methods and times noted with the product description, as well as in your shopping cart once the item is added.
- What is White Glove Delivery?
- Extra-heavy furniture and selected other products require our White Glove Delivery. We'll call you in advance to schedule a delivery time within the continental USA only; then bring the item into your home, unpack and inspect it, perform simple assembly and dispose of all packaging material. (Please note that outdoor grills are not unpacked and require owner assembly.) The charge for this service is included in the flat-rate delivery fee listed below the item's price, which includes all shipping charges for the item. For further assistance, please call 877.812.6235 3AM - 9PM (PST) seven days a week.

Most furniture is delivered using our In-Home White-Glove delivery service, which includes unpacking, inspection, placement and the removal of all packing materials.
- How do I measure for furniture?
- 1. Measure Your Space
- Before choosing furniture, consider the space it will occupy. Start by measuring the perimeter of the room and sketching a simple floor plan to plot the placement of furniture. Be sure to indicate all windows, doors, heating vents and existing furniture.
- Also consider lighting. Where are the electrical outlets in the room? Will you read in this chair? Will a table lamp sit on this dresser? Is there a wall sconce?
- We provide the dimensions of each piece of furniture available to you online and in our catalog. By comparing the length x width x height dimensions, you can begin to visualize how a piece of furniture will fit in the available space.
- After determining the measurements of your furniture selection, you will also want to consider delivery of this item. It's essential that it can pass through all entryways, elevators and stairways.
- Start by measuring the height and width of your entryways and elevator doors. If an item cannot fit straight through an entryway, consider the depth measurement to see if it would fit when angled or tilted.
- You will also want to ensure there is an unobstructed path inside your home. Consider the size of doorways from room to room as well as railings, banisters, ceiling fans, decorative moldings and interior walls that may pose an obstacle once inside the room.
- If you need any assistance regarding furniture measurements or have additional questions about furniture items, please call Customer Service at 1-888-922-4108 (4:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. PST, 7 days a week).
- Is the credit card information I submit secure?
- Absolutely. Every step of the Williams-Sonoma online ordering process that requests credit card information employs Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. SSL renders information unreadable if anyone should attempt to intercept it.
- What is the credit card verification number?
- This number printed on your card provides a safeguard when a purchase is made using your credit card. For Visa, Mastercard and Discover Network, it is the last three digits printed on the back of the card. For American Express, it is the four digits printed above the account number on the front of the card.
- Will Williams-Sonoma sell or rent my email address information to other companies?
- We use the personally identifiable information you provide for internal purposes, such as: confirming and tracking your order, subscription or registration; analyzing trends and statistics; informing you of our new products, services and offers; etc. From time to time, we might establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we deem trustworthy and whose privacy policies are consistent with ours. These are known as our Select Partners. In such cases we might share information, including personally identifiable information about you, that will enable such persons or entities to contact you regarding products and services that may be of interest to you.
- Williams-Sonoma supports and adheres to the guidelines and practices adopted by the Direct Marketing Association`s "Privacy Promise to American Consumers."

We have agreed to (1) provide customers with notice of their ability to opt out of information rental, sale or exchange with other marketers, (2) honor customers` requests not to share their information with other marketers and (3) honor customers` requests not to receive mail, telephone or other solicitations from Williams-Sonoma.
- Do gift-givers need a password to access a gift registry online?

Regardless of which online guest-access option is selected, complete registry information is accessible in any Williams-Sonoma store.
- How does Williams-Sonoma protect a registrant`s privacy online?
- Your own password is required for creating or managing your registry. Your name(s) and the date and locale of the event are the only personal information provided to registry guests.

To order the Williams-Sonoma eGift Card, just choose the denomination and the card design or upload your own photo. Then enter the recipient's email address. Once the purchase has been completed, the eGift Card will be sent to the recipient within hours of purchase or on the date you choose. If lost, simply reprint the eGift Card. If stolen, contact CashStar Customer Support at 866.834.1462. Since this is a partner site, you will not be able to buy the eGift Card and other merchandise in the same transaction.
The eGift Card can be redeemed online or in our retail stores. Just like our plastic Gift Cards, there are no expiration dates or fees. eGift Cards are available in any dollar amount between $25 and $250.
- How are eGift Cards different from plastic Gift Cards?
- Plastic Gift Cards are sent to recipients via mail. eGift Cards are sent via e-mail and can be printed out and used hours after they're purchased. Both plastic and eGift Cards have no fees or expiration dates. They are both redeemable in stores and online.

- I want a printed eGift Card to present to someone as a gift. How can I accomplish this?
- Simply personalize the eGift Card for your recipient, have it sent to yourself, and then print it. To do this, enter your own email address in the "Recipient Email" field, and check the box next to "This is for me." Enter your recipient's name and your own personal message on the Gift Card preview, and complete the transaction normally. You will receive an eGift Card alert via email. Follow the instructions in the message to retrieve your eGift Card, and then click "Print this page." The resulting printout may be presented as a gift to the recipient, and may be redeemed online or in our retail stores.
- Can I purchase an eGift Card with other Williams-Sonoma merchandise in the same transaction?
- No. The purchase of an eGift Card is operated by Williams-Sonoma's third party partner, Cash Star. To buy Williams-Sonoma merchandise, you will need to go to williams-sonoma.com and make the merchandise purchase in a separate transaction.
- What exactly does the recipient receive when I send an eGift Card?
- On the delivery date you choose, a message is sent to the recipient informing them of your gift, with a link to retrieve it online.

The page also gives simple instructions for redeeming the the eGift Card.
- How do I know the recipient actually received the eGift Card I sent them?
- You will receive an email confirming delivery and a message notifying you that the eGift Card has been viewed. If the eGift Card is not viewed within 15 days after delivery, you will receive a message with options for resolving the issue. You may also contact Cash Star Customer Support at 866.834.1462 with the order number from the email you received confirming your purchase, and we can tell you if the recipient viewed their eGift Card.
- When does the eGift Card expire?
- Like our plastic gift cards, there is no expiration date on your eGift Card. We recommend that you redeem it soon after you receive it, so you don't forget.

- To check your eGift Card balance, go to williams-sonoma.com and click on Gift Cards or click here.
- Can I return the eGift Card?

If you return merchandise originally purchased with an eGift Card, any refund will be issued in the form of a merchandise credit that may be used online or at any Williams-Sonoma store.
- Is my order secure?
- All personal and financial information is transmitted using the https protocol over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), utilizing state-of-the-art technology for consumer protection. Behind the scenes, your Web browser is sending all personal and financial information over SSL. The eGift Card purchase process is fully PCI compliant. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact CashStar Customer Support at 866.834.1462.
