Anyone can use the platform and you do not need to store your wines with Bordeaux Index to sell them on LiveTrade (although of course we recommend that you do – to see why click here). However, they need to be in excellent condition and in professional storage in a UK or EU tax warehouse. Detailed condition requirements can be found in our Terms and Conditions.
The prevailing best prices from the LiveTrade platform are reflected on the standard individual wine pages on our website (In Bond tab only). You can instantly buy and sell directly from those pages by adding the wines to your purchase basket or selling basket as appropriate and checking out in the normal way.
But for the full LiveTrade experience head to the Dashboard.
This is where things get exciting. Not only can you buy or sell instantly at the prevailing quote, but you can enter your own targets with a view to enticing another user to deal. Your target levels are adjusted for our margin and published on the platform. This automated process immediately disseminates your interest to our entire global client base.
Browse, search and filter all LiveTrade wines in one easy location complete with price graphs, critic scores and recent trade data. Create your own watchlist and request email notifications to alert you instantly of market movements and trades. Start exploring the Dashboard here.
Transparent two way market, always with a bid and an offer. Nobody else in the wine market guarantees both sides of the trade.
Immediate payment on safe receipt of stock. No hanging around waiting for traditional auction houses to send you a cheque.
