The wine category on eBay has been open for some time and already has some 3500 items for sale. And that number seems sure to sweep because Laithwaites has started selling on eBay.co.uk. They’ll be selling a wide selection of red, white, rose’ and sparkling wines plus mixed cases.
Rhian Bartlett, senior director of retail at eBay says: “Welcoming Laithwaite’s to eBay further expands our wine offering providing more selection and choice for our customers. Whether it’s for summer celebrations or stocking up ahead of the festive season, eBay is becoming a destination for those who know what they like when it comes to wine, as well as enthusiastic amateurs looking to try something new.”
Laithwaite’s CEO David Thatcher says: “We’re excited to be partnering with eBay to reach a new generation of wine drinkers and look forward to introducing eBay’s customers to great-value wines handcrafted in quantities too small for the supermarkets and big retailers.”
Don’t forget that selling alcohol on eBay isn’t open to everyone, you need to be vetted by eBay to verify you have the appropriate licences. And there are some other alcohol related rules here.
