Commissions are the lowest available to private collectors anywhere in the world. We wanted to make it incredibly easy for the fine wine consumer to sell wine when it suited them, to receive more of the sale proceeds, and to get paid really quickly. We do that by providing direct access to the global fine wine secondary market, with up to date market pricing data and commissions as low as possible.

Wine Owners may be ultra low cost, but we don't skimp on service, providing you with fast settlement and full logistics support for movement and inspections to ensure that selling or buying is fuss free.


Private client fees


Selling commissions start at 6.5%+VAT and go as low as 4%+VAT with a Collector membership. You get ultra-low commissions with the premium memberships, along with the ability to set up and track multiple cellars, valuable comparison charts and tools, home cellar organisation and a complimentary, inclusive, subscription to Robert Parker.

Private client terms


Private clients can sell wine stored within wine warehouses or wine stored at home.

Either you must have clear title to the stock in a bonded wine warehouse, in which case you can offer the wines for sale immediately. Please see Selling my wine from professional storage for details.

Or you can sell your wine that's been stored at home - please see Selling my home wine cellar page for details.

VAT and Duty will only be charged on the value of wine purchased if the wine is in bond and the buyer wishes to take it out of bond, eg for home delivery.

Transfers within or between bonded warehouses do not require VAT or Duty payments.

Where private sellers are offering for sale duty paid wines no further VAT is due.

For overseas buyers, export tax rules vary depending on the jurisdiction.

Where applicable all invoices for wines coming out of bond must be paid before delivery.

Buying or selling commissions for private clients are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate, currently 20%.


Fees and terms for wine businesses


Wine merchants and wine brokers pay 2.5%+VAT commission on either side of transactions.

Commissions to business customers outside the EU economic zone are not subject to VAT. (VAT rate is 0)

To sell wine you must have clear title to the stock in a bonded wine warehouse within an account controlled by you.

To buy or sell as a wine business please register for trading providing your business details. Selling commission will be adjusted to 2.5% after you have submitted your application online.
