Selling whisky -

Postby o2o » Mon Nov 11, 2013 9:41 am

Hi,

I was doing some research trying to find a good place to sell whisky and I came across https://www.facebook.com/WhiskyAuctioneer (www.whiskyauctioneer.com) got an interesting competition going..and another http://www.just-whisky.co.uk/ ...

Anyway, I am likely to use an online auction site to sell my whisky - there seems to be quite a selection of sites these days...? Any recommendations? I know Scotchwhiskyauctions and whiskyauctions are established but one seems expensive and the other far away..I only have a few bottles, macallan royal wedding, private eye fortunately and a few less valuable bottles. I "think" I may wait 6 months and see what these new sites have to offer...prices should be fairly consistent as the bottle brings the value not the site?

http://www.whiskyauctioneer.com is live now and are offering 0% comissions charge to sellers. Think I will use them. Wish I could afford some of the lots.

BTW I have another question - should I sell a few ardbeg bottles, I am wondering if the still/very young have reached a good price

what was wrong with the private eye?

they seem very responsive to problems, as can be expected with any new site I guess.

Thanks Richard.

I believe you are referring to the word 'includes', many thanks for pointing that out to me.

Writing these descriptions as well as starting a new business is as can be expected a learning curve.

o2o - I will be happy to discuss any potential sale with you, drop me a pm or contact me via my website please. We are currently offering 0% commission to sellers until January and hope to have ironed out my typing errors by then.
