Navigate the Complexity of Retail Direct-to-Consumer Shipping
Retailers of wine, beer and distilled spirits face numerous limitations when shipping products to out-of-state customers. Currently only 13 states – Alaska, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oregon, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming – and the District of Columbia allow these types of sales.
