SELL Your Whisky

Whisky Trade offers multiple options to sell your whisky.

1. We sell your bottles at auction. 

We run an auction through our website. You must post the bottles to our warehouse prior to us listing them in the next available auction. Enquire about our free reply-paid postage service for new sellers.

The sellers fees are:

-  We charge 0% Sellers Commission on the winning bid (You get 100%). 

-  There are no listing fees to sell your bottles.

-  You are also welcome to set a reserve at no charge.

Please note if your bottle has previously run in 2 auctions without sale, to continue listing the item will incur a $10 listing/reserve fee per additional auction. 

Reserve Restrictions:

- Any bottles readily available at retail can only have a maximum reserve of 80% of the current retail value.

- Your reserve will be displayed during the auction. 

Once sold, we arrange careful delivery at the buyer's expense.

2. We sell your bottles on consignment.

We charge 15% Sellers Commission on the agreed sales price. 

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 return postage fees apply. 

 

3. We make an offer to buy your bottles upfront.

If you need to sell your bottles in a hurry, we can offer to buy your bottles outright. Please note this price is approximately 35% under what we consider fair 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 to sales@whiskytrade.com.au

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. If selling a large collection please contact us to provide a solution. 

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. Please note for Auctions, buyers are given 5 days to pay at completion of an auction. You are also welcome to use your balance as a credit towards other purchases.

What if my bottle fails to meet my reserve price?

If your bottle fails to meet your specified reserve price during auction you have a number of options:

- Relist your bottle in the next monthly auction.

- Ask us to arrange a deal with the highest bidder.

- List your bottle on our Online Whisky Shop or eBay.

- Request the bottle be returned (Postage fees apply).

Please note if your bottle has previously run in 2 auctions without sale, to continue listing the item will incur a $10 listing/reserve fee per additional auction. 

Are my bottles insured while in our possession?

Once received and condition verified on delivery, you have the option to insure your bottles for their reserve values at a fee of 1% of the final sales price.
