Commerce7

Commerce7 is a newcomer to the wine ecommerce/POS scene, and is quickly becoming our FAVORITE solution for wineries. First, it has an incredibly intuitive design throughout. The POS is easy to use, and the backend to manage inventory, clubs, etc. is refreshingly easy to use compared to the other wine-specific ecommerce solutions mentioned on this page. The online store is embedded on your own website (currently WordPress only, does not work with Squarespace yet), so there is no need to create a separate subdomain for your store that is different from your core website. Commerce7 integrates with a wide range of services, including ShipCompliant, Mailchimp, CellarPass, FedEx and more. Overall, this is definitely at the top of our list, and you need to take a demo to see it for yourself!


COSTS

Initiation Fee (to Vinespring): $0
Website Integration Fee (to Vinbound): $500
Monthly Fee: $79+1%, or $399/m
Transaction Fee: 2.9 – 3.9%

VineSpring Website Designer

Vinespring

There are a number of ecommerce solutions built specifically for wineries, such as Commerce7, WineDirect, Orderport and Vinespring. Rather than just allowing for online sales, these systems also provide wine club management, wine allocations, and varying levels of POS integrations. These options can be too costly for small wineries, and many of the features go unused. Yet for wineries with a high volume of sales and members, a wine-specific solution is usually the  best solution. A great choice for a solution of this caliber is Vinespring.


COSTS

Initiation Fee (to Vinespring): $1000
Website Integration Fee (to Vinbound): $1500
Monthly Fee: $179-249
Transaction Fee: $0


IDEAL FOR

Wineries who want a nicely integrated online store that also provides wine club and allocation management.

WineDirect (Formerly Vin65)

WineDirect is often called the Rolls Royce ecommerce solution for wineries… packed full of features, but at the highest price. For sure, WineDirect is among the best in the wine ecommerce game, with countless features you should review on their website. However, while their ecommerce solutions are excellent, be wary of building your entire website with one of their “free” website templates. Compared to popular website platforms like WordPress or Squarespace, trying to edit your website using the WineDirect website builder is cumbersome and confusing. The backend is not intuitive at all, and your free website soon ends up costing a fortune in tech support for even the smallest edits. We are of the firm belief that WineDirect and others should focus solely on improving their ecommerce functionality while leaving the core website to the much more developed, community-rich platforms of WordPress, Squarespace, Shopify, etc.. So if you go with WineDirect, here is our advice: Hire Vinbound or another website developer to craft your ideal, beautiful, easily-editable core website, then use a WineDirect ecommerce integrator like WineWorks.co to match the style of your WineDirect(Vin65) ecommerce store to the rest of your beautiful website. The result will be a website you love and can easily edit,  empowered by all the ecommerce features you need from WineDirect. Win Win!


COSTS

Core Website (To Vinbound or other developer): $3000-6000+
Ecommerce Integration Fee (to WineWorks): $1000+
WineDirect Fees: $249-599/month


IDEAL FOR

Wineries who want one powerful system to manage all POS, online and club transactions.
