Online Only Vendor Direct Shipping

Ordering online exclusive items at Lowe's means that your purchase is shipped directly from the vendor. Learn what that means for you and your order.

  • Online only items are shipped to you directly from our Vendors. This allows us to offer more variety and value with the same level of service as if your purchase was shipped directly by Lowe's. 
  • On each product page, we display the Vendor's stated lead time, which refers to the time from their receipt of your order to when it's ready to ship to you. We do our best to provide you with accurate shipping times for these products. The times are estimates only. Lowe's truck deliveries for large Online Only exclusive items are curb-side only. Curb-side delivery service provides delivery of your item(s) to the curb at the end of your driveway. This service does not include setup or assembly of items or removal of packaging materials. All other Online Only items will be delivered via standard ground shipping. 
  • The "Ships-In" time for our Online Only Vendor-Direct Shipping items is provided to by each vendor and is an estimate of the average number of business days it takes the Vendor to process your order and ship the item from their warehouse. These shipping times are not a guarantee. 
  • Items will be delivered curbside due to weight restrictions. The customer will be responsible for placing the item in their home.
  • Online only products marked "In Stock" are items that the Vendor has provided us a real-time inventory feed for. These items normally ship from their warehouse within two business days; however, these products are subject to prior sale and availability and lead times are not guaranteed. 
  • Occasionally, Vendor-Direct items shown to be in stock or available get pre-sold; in this case, you will be sent an email notification that your item is on backorder. You have the option to continue to wait for that item, cancel your order for a full refund, or select a different item to order. 
  • Any item purchased online can be returned to any Lowe's Store. Please see our return policy for more details. 
  • We recommend ordering custom products well in advance to avoid project delays. 
  • Purchases from can only be shipped to destinations within Canada; standard shipping rates apply unless specified. 
  • Lowe's is not liable for costs associated with shipment delays.
