Selling Alcohol Online With Shopify


Selling alcoholic beverages online has a few unique challenges that require custom development on Shopify. That being said, Shopify as a platform has proven to be a fantastic solution for enabling both e-commerce sales for delivery and as well a solution for buy online and pick up in store. Our merchants are seeing significant growth in this area and we’d love to share our learnings with you.

Delivery Zones

With our tool you are able to map out community delivery zones and link them to your specific stores. This is the most effective way to run a fast and efficient delivery service with the lowest climate impact. Your drivers will be able to turn around more orders in the least amount of time. We can support you with the logistics planning around these maps – just ask!

Local Delivery Options

Manual logistic planning for deliveries is time consuming and can often need to be amended on the go, costing you time and money. Our tool comes complete with a logistic solution that does the work for you. Businesses who manage their own deliveries rather than work with a 3rd party delivery partner save, on average, between 30-35% on each other.  Your delivery information in syncs in the tool and routes are automatically generated (and amended) without any manual effort. Routes and timetables are completely customizable so you can manage your delivery persons shift. It really couldn’t be simpler. 

Buy Online or Pick-up In Store

Giving customers not only the choice to have their products delivered or picked up sometimes isn’t enough. Our solution allows your customers to select the window for delivery (time and date) for optimal convenience. We can customize windows for delivery between 1 hour and up to 4 hours with various delivery pricing options for your business.

Age Verification

In order to be compliant with Canadian provincial liquor laws, we offer an age gate upon entering the site.

Bottle Deposit Pricing Solution

In order to ensure your business is compliant with Canadian Container Deposit Legislation we have built an add-on which can be customized for any recyclable product and provincial pricing structure across Canada.

Photo Assignment Tool

Do you have a new product in your catalogue and no professional photography available? No problem! With our photo assignment tool you can pull practically any professional alcohol product photography from an extensive database to quickly add the product to your site. This is included with our tool at no additional charge and makes launching products quick and easy.

Multi Location Inventory Support

You can set up multiple locations to track inventory and fulfil orders at your locations. Your locations can be retail stores, warehouses, or any other place where you manage or stock inventory. With multiple locations, you have better visibility into your inventory across your business. To make sure your inventory quantities are always accurate, online orders and in-person sales are assigned to locations. If some of your inventory is out of stock at one location, but it’s in stock at another location, then our solution will split the order so that it can be fulfilled from multiple locations.

King Corp POS Integration

We have a custom e-commerce connector that connects Shopify King Corp POS. With this connector you will have an integrated experience so that new products created in store will be imported into the Shopify webstore. Additionally, the appropriate bottle deposits and other product attributes will come over. Of course, this also supports live inventory as well as multi location inventory, so that your online store is always an accurate reflection of your in store inventory levels.

Online Credit Card Processing + PCI Compliance

Whether you prefer to process with Moneris, Shopify Payments, or another merchant processor, we can make sure that you’re compliant and ready to process liquor sales online.
