Online shopping: As consumers, most of us are pretty used to it by now. We buy everything from groceries to toilet paper and dog food. But for business to business (B2B) transactions in the wine and spirits space, buying wholesale alcohol online just like any other online shopping store is a new phenomenon. After all, our industry is highly regulated and technology companies like LibDib and SevenFifty have only been around for a few years.
Buying wholesale alcohol online is here and it will make your life as a buyer easier.
More and more small production wines and spirits, that were once hard to find or didn’t have distribution, are being distributed thanks to LibDib. Resellers in California, Colorado, New York and Wisconsin are enjoying the beauty of this new way to buy products. These are small production products that will engage customers in new ways.
You might not have access to LibDib in your state yet, but it’s coming! It’s the way of the future. Our partner Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) is rolling out their online platform as well. Online shopping is officially here.
What does this mean for buyers? Discover, research and purchase wine and spirits online when it’s convenient to you. Buy different quantities of products (LibDib sells products literally “one case at a time.”) Set up reorder reminders. Place orders online while in the middle of an overnight inventory count (our resellers LOVE this).
Another way we make buying easier is via shopping categories. LibDib buyers are immediately greeted with a list of categories to choose from. There is an easy way to drill down into specifics like variety, price, format, type of spirit, etc. However, categories are easily browsable for trends and bestsellers.
Looking for that small production, 94 point Napa Cabernet Sauvignon or single barrel bourbon? Sign in to LibDib and visit one of our categories. We bet you will find something new that will wow your customers. Create favorite lists and shop just like other online shopping platforms.
