Swappa Holiday Shipping Deadlines
Swappa sellers are required to ship items 2 days after receiving payment using their preferred shipping provider (FedEx, UPS, US Postal Service, etc). However, widespread shipping delays make it tricky to pinpoint exactly when a package will reach its destination. Swappa recommends including a one-week buffer in order to ensure that you aren’t affected by any potential delays.
Here’s when you should have ordered by in order to guarantee delivery by Christmas:
Last day to ship United States Postal Service before Christmas
- USPS Retail Ground – Dec. 15 (order by : Dec. 8)
- First-Class Mail Service – Dec. 18 (order by: Dec. 11)
- Priority Mail Service – Dec. 19 (order by: Dec. 12)
- Priority Mail Express – Dec. 23 (order by: Dec. 16)
Last day to ship UPS before Christmas

Keep in mind that the above dates don’t account for any unforeseen delays due to inclement weather. Due to widespread shipping delays, the sooner you can buy and get your package shipped, the better. You’ll also want to factor in the two days sellers have to ship out devices purchased on Swappa.
