Sell Wine - Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What commission does Cru take on selling my wines?
A. Typically, we will charge just 5% of the total sale value for wines purchased through us. If wines were purchased elsewhere then our fee is 10%, however, our advisors will confirm our commission based on the size and total value of your portfolio. The more you sell the less you pay in commission. Meaning you keep more of your return.
Q. Do I have to pay to transfer to Cru's storage?
A. Storing your wine with Cru is essential for us to sell your wines quickly and efficiently. Cru will not charge any landing or handling fee once your items arrive at our warehouses. Though, your current supplier may charge you a transfer fee per item.
Q. Do I have to pay for storing my wine while selling it with Cru?
A. Storage fees do apply, however, they are extremely low and can be paid monthly rather than yearly. We are also willing to negotiate the cost of storing your wine with us while it sells, based on the total value and quantity you decide to sell through us. More information on storage fees can be found here.
