Wineries (and other alcohol beverage businesses) that use both Nexternal's eCommerce Platform and ShipCompliant are able to check orders for compliance at the time they are placed. Nexternal also offers a synchronization feature that allows shipping statuses and tracking numbers to update between the two systems. Wineries can easily generate the 700+ direct shipping compliance reports required by the states from within ShipCompliant.
ShipCompliant is the leading compliance solution for wineries looking to participate in the valuable direct-to-consumer sales channel. ShipCompliant's online platform enables wineries to easily manage the rules and regulations required to ship alcohol compliantly throughout the US. Compliance checks are performed on each order that enters the system to ensure that orders are compliant prior to shipping. At the end of each reporting period, ShipCompliant produces signature-ready direct shipping, sales tax, and excise tax reports. ShipCompliant's comprehensive alert system automatically notifies wineries with the latest regulatory changes and compliance status updates to help wineries stay fully compliant in each state to which they ship.
