Wine Sales & Commissions

You can list any of your wines for sale in the Buy Wine section of the Cellarit website
(note, the example uses retail prices and commissions, inclusive of GST)

  • It's free and easy to list your wine for sale. No sales, no commissions.
  • You set the price and quantity for sale, make changes or cancel whenever you like
  • If you ship a listed wine it's automatically removed from sale prior to dispatch
  • Cellarit takes care of everything incl. advertising, licensing, payments, pick, pack & delivery
  • You pay no logistics fees (handling-out, delivery, transit insurance) when you sell wine via Cellarit
  • Commission upon a sale is 25% of the listing price
    Example for a bottle sold by Cellarit to its buyer at $100:
    • $25 is the total commission netted out from the listing price
    • $75 is your wholesale price for tax and accounting purposes

Sales proceeds, net of commissions, are credited directly to your Cellarit account and can significantly offset your logistics fees, saving valuable cash flow.
