Some Sell Wine Collection Mistakes People Make

by Bertha Wells

With the advancement of technology in the 21st century, one can trade almost anything online, and this includes the ability to sell wine collection. A collector who wishes to trade must have the confidence of knowing that their collection is of the best quality. In order to make selling a success, the collector must avoid making a few errors which will be the difference between a successful sale and an unsuccessful one.

The first error that people make when selling is to give away portfolios that are expensive. This in turn means that one has to wait for quite a long time to obtain their liquor license. On the other hand there are some people who do not take the time to trade with online buyers because of the time it takes to do so.

Most times people expect too much. Many collectors, instead of finding the best ways to estimate the value of their collections, they leave it to auction houses. This can be very dangerous. Most times, the auction values given are not even the least of what is gained by the owner.

Using auctions to sell is never a good idea. There are so many buyers that cheat sellers out of the deal. Many of these buyers accept the prices given by owners at the start but after they have received product, they start to give long details of complaints and are dissatisfied with the quality of the wine.

It is highly recommended that the seller insists on receiving just half of the payment, then deliver half of his stock. Should the buyer like the quality of the wine and they give no complaints, the seller can then insist on the balance outstanding and he in turn must hand over the rest of the stock. A seller must ensure that they do not buy into the low-ball counter offer system. This means that the seller must divide his collection into small boxes, he can then sell each box separately. If there is a buyer who defaults in payment, the buyer is not left without stock to continue selling.

Believe it or not there is a manner in which one must deliver to the buyer. The seller must keep in mind that in whatever way delivery takes place, the most important thing is NOT to compromise the quality. If by the time the delivery is effected, labels have peeled off the bottle, the temperature of the drink is altered or worse the quality is compromised, that will be a huge strike against the collector.

Mastering packaging and shipping is the half way point to a successful wine business. This is especially imperative if one wants to trade their collection online. A seller will need to do his homework concerning selling online as not every online site permits that wines be sold via their website.

Having said that though, it does not mean that selling one's collection is impossible, quite the contrary. A collector can research for online buyers and with hard work and perseverance, he will find these buyers. With careful planning and hard work, one can sell wine collection successfully.
