Find trading opportunities

There are tens of thousands of products on the market, and their prices are constantly changing. So how can you make sure that you’re finding the best opportunities? Be alerted to price changes and relevant activity by buyers and sellers. 


Automated trading – sell automatically

Our APIs connect stock management systems like MS Business Central or Vintner with Liv-ex so that your wines are advertised for sale on our trading platform automatically. You can set filters and parameters so that you stay in control of what is offered. 


Automated trading – increase your offering

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. 


Bring prices into your system

When you’re buying and selling wine, or talking to clients, it’s important to know the right price. Often, this means making repetitive online searches – but it doesn’t have to. 

With automation services, you can bring prices from Liv-ex – Market Price, Bid, Offer, last trade, and others – into your internal systems.  


Critic scores icon

Get critic scores automatically

Bring thousands of scores and notes into your system and website automatically. This saves time and ensures total accuracy.

This is new service is currently available with Vinous, Jane Anson and Saturnalia, and we are planning to add other publications and critics.


Stay in sync with LWIN

The LWIN database is vast and constantly growing. It contains extensive information – region, sub-region, colour, classification and more – on 100,000 different wines, and it’s constantly growing. 

Using LWIN APIs, you can stay in sync with it automatically – no more manual updates.

Finance icon

Track your account and financial position

Account APIs bring key financial information, like your trading limits, invoices and net statements, into your own system. You can set up alerts as you reach your trading limits, and view information on which members of your team have access to Liv-ex. All of this makes it more convenient for you to view and monitor your Liv-ex account activity. 


"The biggest benefit of automated trading is the freedom to use our unique environment without consulting the website multiple times a day."
