eBay Enters The Wine Space In Partnership With Delivery App DryncApril 28, 2016
E-commerce retailer eBay has partnered with mobile delivery platform Drync to launch eBay Wine, a new portal for wine sales.The site and section in eBay’s mobile application is initially offering more than 10,000 wines, from 30 countries and over 500 wine regions. The selection spans entry-level offerings to rare collectibles and will grow as eBay Wine expands.
As opposed to the unstructured listings found on eBay’s main site, the wine portal sorts wines by varietal, region and price point, among other parameters. For rare bottles, shoppers can use eBay’s “Buy It Now” or auction method. Wines can be shipped to any destination in the United States where permitted by law, and delivery options will also include in-store pick-up in the near future.
Drync, which launched in 2008, began as an at-home delivery service, but later shifted its focus to providing e-commerce solutions for off-premise accounts. The app works with retailers to facilitate wine, spirits and beer purchases for customers to pick up in-store. “We’ve basically integrated with the three-tier network,” Drync CEO Brad Rosen told SND last year. “We know what’s available in wholesaler warehouses, and we market from that inventory.”
