The Bottle Deposit feature allows wineries to charge customers for Bottle Deposits. While most states charge a flat rate, many Canadian provinces charge based on container size. WineDirect manages the bottle deposit amounts for you and automatically charges the correct amount based on the bottle sizes being sold.
If your order contains a wine product, the appropriate bottle deposit will automatically be charged determined by two factors;
Here are the rates charged for Canadian provinces, these rates are determined by the Provincial Government;
Here are the rates charged for USA states;
If your winery is located in British Columbia, all bottles smaller than 1000ml will add an additional charge of $0.10. All bottles larger than 1000ml will add an additional charge of $0.20. Rates for other Provinces/States will not be applicable for any customer orders.
Bottle deposits are charged by default on all pickup orders. For shipping orders, wineries can configure which states/provinces they would like to charge by configuring this in the State Profile section of each state or province - see below.
Yes, you can. Under Store > State Profile > Select the State/Province > Edit Wines section, you can find a checkbox to set whether or not to charge Bottle Deposits for orders shipping to this State/Province.
When you first enable Bottle Deposits, the Charge on Shipped Wine option will be disabled for all States/Provinces.

In the admin panel, under website settings, ensure the default ship state is set correctly. In the POS profile that you are using, ensure that the physical location you have specified for the address is correct.
Yes, bottle deposits will work when using our bundles feature.
Bottle deposits have only been set up for the states where a winery is using bottle deposits but that does not mean we cannot set this feature up for new states. If your winery is located in the USA and you would like to use bottle deposits with a state that is not listed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
