SELL Your Whisky
Whisky Trade offers four options to sell your whisky.
1. We sell your bottles at auction.
We run a monthly auction through our website. You must post the bottles to our warehouse prior to us listing them in the next available auction. We also offer free collection in some states.
The sellers fees are:
- We charge 0% Sellers Commission on the winning bid.
- There is a $5 listing fee per bottle per auction (FREE if 3 or more bottles listed in the same auction).
- You are welcome to set a reserve at no charge.
- Please note we do not allow reserves for bottles under $200.
- Any bottles readily available at retail can only have a maximum reserve of 80% of the current retail value.
- Your reserve will not be displayed during the auction.
Once sold, we arrange careful delivery at the buyers expense. Please note if you wish to withdraw your bottle for sale there is a $25 per bottle handling fee plus return postage. Bottles can not be withdrawn during a live auction.

2. We sell your bottles on consignment.

We have a Whisky Shop on our website. This is a great option if you are not in a rush to sell and have a set value in mind. You must post the bottles to our warehouse prior to us listing it on our website. We then photograph the bottles and list them for sale. You are welcome to decide the sales price for the bottles you are selling or ask us for advice. You may decide to revise your price if necessary.
We have a growing number of members daily who are interested in buying. You are also welcome to share the link to your bottles on any social media platform. Once they sell, we pay you the agreed sales price less our commission. We arrange careful delivery at the buyers expense. Please note if you wish to withdraw your bottle for sale there is a $25 per bottle handling fee plus return postage.
3. We sell your bottles via eBay.
We charge 22% Sellers Commission on the final agreed sales price. Inclusive of eBay fees.
We can use eBay to sell your bottles. You must post the bottles to our warehouse prior to us listing them on eBay. We then photograph the bottles and list them for sale. Once they sell we pay you the agreed sales price less our commission. We arrange careful delivery at the buyers expense. Please note if you wish to withdraw your bottle for sale there is a $25 per bottle handling fee plus return postage.
4. We make an offer to buy your bottles for a wholesale price.
If you need to sell your bottles in a hurry, we can offer to buy your bottles outright at a wholesale price. Please note this price is approximately 30% under what we consider fair retail value. Once we agree on a value, you must post the bottles to our warehouse. As soon as the bottles are checked you will be paid immediately.
To start selling, FIRST email us with a list of your bottles you are looking to sell with some clear photos attached to:
Address for deliveries:
32-34 Provident Ave,
Glynde, SA, 5070
All bottles sent to us are done so at your own risk. We cannot be responsible for any damage or loss in transit. Please keep a note of your tracking numbers and couriers for your records. Please check with the courier about insuring your bottles.
How should I pack my bottles for transport?
Please use a strong cardboard box which will allow you to keep the bottles upright. You'll also need plenty of bubble wrap or packing materials to make sure that the bottles and boxes are well protected. Fragile tape or stickers are also worth attaching to the outer box.
What bottles do we accept?
We specialise in whiskies but we do accept other alcohol as well.
We reserve the right to refuse any bottle. If there is any concern about the authenticity of a bottle, it will not be listed for sale. In the event of a dispute arising over the provenance or authenticity of any bottle, if it cannot be proved to be genuine, it will be returned to the seller.
How will I be paid for my bottles?
If you are a successful seller, we will not process your payments until the buyer has paid us, has received their bottle(s) and is satisfied that the bottle(s) received were accurate. You are also welcome to use your balance as a credit towards other available stock.
Are my bottles insured while in our possession?
Yes, once received and condition verified on delivery, all bottles are insured for the agreed sales price or reserve (less commission).
