The sale of alcoholic beverages

MrBuyGuy will not allow the listings of wine, beer and other alcoholic beverages on its website due to many difficulties inherent in Internet alcoholic sales. There may be instances where the particular collectable container is unopened and still contains an alcoholic beverage. 

The sale of collectable containers will be permitted as long as the following conditions are met:

  1. The value of the auctioned item is in the collectable container, not its contents. Thus bottles of wine are not permitted because their value is based on the wine in the bottle, and not the bottle itself.
  2. When listing the description of the container, it should state that the container has not been opened, that the contents are not intended for consumption.
  3. The item you are listing must not be available at any retail outlet, and the container must have a value that substantially exceeds the current retail price of the alcohol in the container.
  4. When selling your item you should take steps to ensure that the buyer of these collectables is of lawful age in the buyer and seller's jurisdiction (generally 18 years old in the UK, 21 years old in the US).
  5. Buyers and sellers on this site must ensure that the sale complies with all applicable laws and delivery regulations in carrying out the transaction.
