Fine wine e-tailer Port2Port turned one-year-old in February of this year and is not letting the proverbial grass grow with the recent launch of Port2Port MarketPlace. Frustrated by limited stock allocations, delayed delivery times and restricted product variation incurred by the back and forth between producers and retailers alike, the question presented itself: Why not remove the middleman – themselves? Port2Port MarketPlace offers retailers and producers the opportunity to sell and deliver directly to their consumers via Port2Port’s integrated, user-friendly online platform.
Users will have the opportunity to shop a vast array of wines, spirits and accessories from a number of retailers and producers directly from one platform, offering not only choice but convenience. The selection of wines and spirits will include both local and international products curated in trademark Port2Port style.
Users will settle one bill even when shopping from a variety of retailers and producers at a time, with the added bonus of receiving their parcels within two to four working days as the products will be coming straight from the source, no detours.
In a word, or four, the MarketPlace experience delivers on: Price. Provenance. Service. (and) Selection.
Customers will receive the best value for their money by selecting and purchasing wine directly from Port2Port’s approved wineries and specialised retailers. The orders will be received, packed and sent directly from the wineries and trusted suppliers. Guaranteed Provenance not only assures the authenticity of the product, but the conditions in which it has been cellared to ensure optimum ageing potential.
From farm-to-door, MarketPlace pride themselves on offering the most conclusive service in online wine. They aim not only to please, but to impress with unique service that is hands-on and ready to assist shoppers from signing up to making a purchase. MarketPlace will also allow shoppers to track their parcels in real-time including estimated delivery dates once an order has been processed, so as to allow maximum transparency before and during delivery.
Finally, MarketPlace’s portfolio will consist exclusively of the most prestigious and respected wineries and specialised retailers.
Port2Port encourages consumers to explore MarketPlace’s curated selection of local and international award winning wines. This forms a curated selection of retailers and producers on one integrated platform, building a community of educated, boundless wine lovers.
