Using just a handful of APIs, you can offer thousands of products from Liv-ex to your customers. These wines, which range from the rarest bottles in the world to everyday drinking wine, are committed to your clients as soon as they place an order.
Merchants using these APIs have reported significant increases in sales. Not only has a large and frequently changing offer list helped to engage their existing customers, but it has helped them to find and build relationships with new ones.
How it works
The majority of buyers have two options when shopping for wine online. The first is to source from stockists, who tend to be traditional wine merchants or shops. Purchasing options from these are often limited, but the availability of the wine is guaranteed and can be secured instantly. The second option is to source from brokers. As middlemen, brokers can offer enormous choice, but cannot guarantee availability or fast delivery.
Using Liv-ex APIs, you can offer your customers the best of both. Liv-ex has thousands of products with guaranteed availability, which you offer on your website with your commission and fees added on top.
This is one half of DMA, Direct Market Access. The other half allows you to offer your stock on Liv-ex automatically.
[Remove this, but showing as an example of how content can support: Read ‘Automation: the story of a case’to see the journey of one case of wine that was bought and sold using APIs last year.]
