From ShareWine, we recommend sellers to offer shipping of wine. There are several reasons why it is attractive for you as a seller to offer shipping.
- You get access to multiple buyers when your ads are not restricted by who has the option to pick up a wine.
- Most often, trades can be completed faster as you can ship the wine as soon as the buyer has paid. In this way, you do not have to find a time where you have the opportunity to meet and hand over the wine.
- With access to more buyers, you will typically be able to achieve higher selling prices.
NOTE: In order for winners of your ads to use shipments via ShareWine, you must configure Secure Payment and then set up Checkout / Shipping. See more about it here Secure Payment and here Checkout / Shipping.
Once you as a seller have configured Shipping, winners of your ads will be presented with the opportunity to receive wines.
There are 2 types of shipments, In both cases the postage is paid together with the wine.
ShareWine Shipping: If you choose to offer shipping via ShareWine shipping, we will buy postage on your behalf. And attach it to the sale. That way, you simply print the bill of lading and put it on the package. Then we will make sure to update the Track'n Trace information on the platform so that both you and the buyer can always see how far the package is. If the buyer has paid by credit card, the money for postage will automatically be deducted from the payment before the money is paid to you. If the buyer has paid around ShareWine (mobilepay, bank transfer or similar) then the price for postage will be included in the collection of the seller fee which we send to you.
Own Shipments: If you as a buyer want to be responsible for buying postage, entering Trace'n Trace details, etc., it is also possible. With Own Shipments, you have defined during the setup how much the buyer must pay in postage. After the ad has been won and paid for, you buy postage and fill in the details about the shipment on the order so that the buyer can follow the process. If the buyer has paid by credit card, we will pay the money for postage to your account together with the money for the wine sold.
