Why is Vinoshipper connected with Vinebase?
Vinoshipper is an important compliance tool for independent wineries and this is our first step in a series of planned projects to offer a seamless integration between the two platforms. We’re the first and only company Vinoshipper is building this integration with and it solves the problem of having to manually input orders where you need to use Vinoshipper licenses into Vinoshipper.
What is Vinoshipper?
Vinoshipper is a compliance tool for wineries that allows wineries to process an order on a Vinoshipper direct to consumer shipping license. In order to use Vinoshipper with a Vinebase Hosted Website, you will need to connect the two platforms using our Vinoshipper Cart Integration.
What does the customer experience look like in states where my Vinoshipper cart integration is enabled?
Once you have enabled your Vinoshipper cart integration for specific states, a customer who is located in any of those states can add wines to their cart on your website or on the marketplace.
