+ PayPal is asking me to sign up for an account when I tried to use my credit card. I do not want to open a PayPal Account. What should I do?
You do not have to sign up for a PayPal Account if you do not wish to do so. On the same PayPal payment processing page which asks you to sign up for a PayPal Account, there is a hyperlink that says “Pay with my credit or debit card”. The link may be phrased differently in different countries but it is there. Click on the link to pay with your card. If there is indeed no option to pay with your credit or debit card, it is most likely because that card has already been registered with PayPal previously. Some of our customers may have unwittingly signed up with PayPal when they shopped online previously with other merchants. In this case, select "forgotten password" on the PayPal page to search for and reset your PayPal account accordingly.

+ I received a gift card. How do I use it?
On the My Cart page, tap the gift box icon and enter your gift card code and the code will be applied automatically.

WEDDING AND CORPORATE BANQUETING EVENT

No we do not provide consignment.

You need to pay in advance for all wines to be delivered to the venue. We will pick up the unconsumed wines from the venue and give you an immediate refund once we ascertain that the wines are in good condition.

+ Do you provide free tasting?
We try our best to keep prices down for all our Customers. This means we do not buffer for sampling costs in our selling prices. As most of our Customers do not require tasting, we feel that it is unfair for them to bear the sampling cost. If you need to obtain tasting bottles, please purchase them from our site.
