Our business has grown by 30% in the past year since joining Drizly, and that growth has come not just from orders we receive through its platform, but also through our in-store business, expanding our reach from a few blocks to a five mile radius.

Because of Drizly we can expand our inventory to include more craft beer and single malts. Because of this expanded inventory we’ve also seen more people coming into the store that would’ve gone elsewhere or driven farther to get these products.

We continue to be excited about our relationship with Drizly – we have benefited greatly from the partnership. We now attract business from many corporate customers that we never had in the past as well as significant sales from outside our ZIP Code.

How it Works
Digitize Your Shelves
Drizly works with over 100 point of sale systems to bring your inventory online. We’ll work with you to connect your inventory to start selling right away. We provide real time inventory updates via your POS, Daily Settlements, and access to a dedicated Drizly Account Manager to ensure the success of your store.
Determine Your Delivery Plan
You maintain complete control over the delivery experience with the customer and are free to set your delivery days, hours and fulfillment plans. Note that 3rd party delivery is available to stores in certain geographies. We’ll work with you to help get your team trained on Drizly tools and delivery best practices.
That’s it. As soon as your store is live, we’ll notify customers in your area that they can now shop your store on Drizly. Consumers will be able to browse your full inventory online, hit order, and voila, your store gains a new customer. You’ll receive detailed updates right through the Drizly app so you can properly pack and deliver the order.

To start, there are no fixed costs at all when you work with Drizly. No sign-up fee, maintenance fees or minimums, and no cancellation fees.
Beyond that, our pricing recognizes the fact that we operate in a highly regulated market. Our model is built to be compliant with the regulatory bodies in every state we operate in. Depending on where your store is located, you’ll fall into one of these pricing systems:
Just in case you were curious, too.
Is this REALLY legal?
Drizly was uniquely designed to operate within the three-tier system. We’re not out to disrupt it – we’re here to help our partners bring their shelves online in a legally compliant manner. We’re fully versed on the proper regulations of each state we operate in and can work with you to determine if you’re able to partner with Drizly today.
How long does it take to get started?
We’ve done it in as little as 48 hours before and since we’re pretty competitive, we’re always trying to beat that record. Generally, you can expect that it will take around 5-7 days, but it depends on a variety of factors. We can give you a better idea once we start talking.
Does my store need special permits or licenses to deliver alcohol?
You might. We strongly encourage you to contact regulatory bodies in your state to ensure you’re properly certified to deliver alcohol to customers.
Who does the deliveries?
Stores and their staff maintain control of packing and delivering all orders received through Drizly. In some states, third party delivery services are available. For more information on external delivery solutions in your area, contact us.
Can I be the exclusive Drizly store for my area?
We operate on a marketplace model and our platform is open to all qualified retailers. While we do not guarantee exclusivity to any one store in a given area, we’re constantly investing in driving new customers to all of our Retail Partners to help grow their business.
Who determines my delivery zone, hours, fees, minimums, etc.?
You do! We’ve got a pretty good idea what factors will set you up for success and will happily help you figure out what’s best for your store. And nothing is set in stone. You’re always able to adjust based on demand, capability and desire.
