The partnership enables a seamless buying process for both wineries and consumers while ensuring compliance with all regulatory requirements
(ATLANTA) June 13, 2023 – Automated alcohol beverage compliance leader Sovos ShipCompliant today announced a partnership with WithWine, a direct-to-consumer commerce and marketing platform for wineries. The integration of ShipCompliant within the WithWine platform enables real-time compliance checks and application of tax rates to wine orders placed through websites, point-of-sale (POS) systems and club/recurring orders for wineries using the WithWine app to attract and retain customers. Additional support for pickup orders provides wineries with flexibility in fulfilling customer requests.
“The WithWine and Sovos ShipCompliant partnership represents a significant advancement in streamlining the consumer purchase process, while continuing to prioritize regulatory compliance for wineries,” said Larry Cormier, vice president and general manager of Sovos ShipCompliant. “By seamlessly connecting wineries directly to consumers, WithWine enables a convenient and compliant marketplace for all parties.”
ShipCompliant’s solution is designed to guarantee a compliant process that mitigates the risk of fines or penalties for wineries due to non-compliant orders, fostering a secure and hassle-free experience for all parties involved. Through the technology used in each of the DtC solutions, if an order fails to meet compliance standards, wineries will receive detailed information to make necessary edits to the orders and recheck their compliance status.
“WithWine’s partnership with Sovos ShipCompliant is a game-changer for wine consumers and wineries alike,” said Richard Owens, CEO of WithWine. “The WithWine app revolutionizes wineries’ selling process and the way they find, acquire and retain customers. With the Sovos ShipCompliant partnership, wineries can be assured we are providing them with a platform that is compliant and convenient for them and consumers.”
