AmericanWinery.com Opens Consumer Direct Marketplace and Sets New Industry Standard: Efficient, Safe and More Profitable Direct Wine Sales.Click here to get started.
America’s fastest growing wine marketing company gives American wineries access to thousands of wine consumers and highest profit margins—90% of all wine sales.
Walla Walla, WA—AmericanWinery.com is pleased to announce the successful launch of their all-new wine store, the Consumer Direct Marketplace (CDM). Within the first week of its opening on October 9th, over 20 wineries set up their online stores at AmericanWinery.com, and sales are pouring in from all parts of the U.S. Wineries can sign on with AmericanWinery.com without any start-up fees and sell their wine through its premier website, keeping 90% of every sale with no strings attached. It has never been easier or safer to sell wine direct to consumers on the Internet.
How does ordering wine at AmericanWinery.com work?
- Consumer orders wine from AmericanWinery.com (AW).
- AW processes payment through a secure payment gateway.
- Wineries pack and ship the order to the consumer.
- AW sends each winery a monthly check for 90% of their sales!
AmericanWinery.com processes credit cards, manages customer service, and markets on behalf of the winery. AW only gets paid when their clients make sales, and the AW fee is a fraction of what other distribution channels generally take.
“Now wineries have a no-cost way to sell their wine securely, safely, and for more profit,” says Lloyd Benedict, Founder and CEO of AmericanWinery.com. “Some wineries may already be losing 10% or more when you add up tasting room overhead costs, hefty web maintenance fees, and merchant fees that chip away at a winery’s profits. For wineries already selling online, the CDM is not a substitute for direct sales from their own website, but rather a long-term profit booster. For wineries with no website or e-commerce presence, it’s an absolute boon to their business.”
How can wineries get started?
- Wineries can get started by visiting AmericanWinery.com/passion
- Once a profile is activated, store set-up takes less than 10 minutes.
- Wineries will be selling more wine for more profit within one business day!
“If you are just starting in e-commerce, AmericanWinery.com is the only real choice,” says John Armstrong, owner/winemaker of Purple Cow Vineyards in Forest Grove, Oregon". “The fees are a percentage of the sales, with no monthly service fee. AmericanWinery.com is the best place to set up your e-commerce sales if you want to focus your marketing efforts on consumers.”
The AmericanWinery.com Consumer Direct Marketplace is available to any winery in the United States; however, shipping compliance remains the responsibility of the winery. The account set-up procedure prompts each winery to enter the states where they ship and appropriate sales tax data. “We have wineries shipping to between 5 and 35 states,” says Benedict. “The store was built to apply to wineries across the board, accommodating both ends of the direct sales spectrum.”
By acquiring over 600 winery clients in under a year, AmericanWinery.com has quickly established itself as the fastest-growing online wine marketing company in the United States, making easy and secure e-commerce transactions a priority. Wineries can take advantage of the added security of Digicert SSL certification, McAfee Secure, and IDology age verification technology. In turn, visitors can access a wealth of wine information and enjoy the convenience of being able to purchase wine from several different wineries in one transaction.
The ability to buy and sell online with confidence and ease while giving more profit directly to the American winemaker is what makes AmericanWinery.com a practical resource that every winery, winemaker and consumer should take advantage of.
AmericanWinery.com has acquired over 600 clients in the ten months since launching their premier site, giving wineries a no-cost way to reach new consumers with free marketing profiles. Offering wineries 90% of all sales made through the Consumer Direct Marketplace affirms the company’s commitment to always provide wineries an exceptional marketing and sales platform with no start up fees or hidden costs.
