Terms And Conditions
The Website is intended for licensed, wholesale purchasers of wine and beverages within Australia only. Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted to use this Website.
The EBev Website
- EBev is a website for the wholesale wine and beverage trade, aggregating portfolios from leading wine and beverage suppliers (“Sellers”) for licensed restaurants, bars and retailers (“Licensed Purchasers”). The Website provides the platform through which Licensed Purchasers can efficiently, conveniently and directly connect with a large range of wholesale Sellers and their products.
- It is important that you understand that when you place an order for a product on this Website, you are placing an order with the Seller of the product, and not us. Conversely, Sellers acknowledge that purchase orders are initiated by Licensed Purchasers and not EBev. EBev, itself, does not sell any products from the Website. Sellers of products on the Website are located in Australia and are subject to Australian laws and regulations.
- You should read the terms and conditions on which each Seller makes their products available for purchase. These are located on the relevant Seller’s page.
- If you wish to return any products or have any complaints in relation to a product you purchase from a Seller, you should contact the relevant Seller directly.

- searching the products listed by Sellers on the Website;
- making personal ratings and tasting notes against products listed on the Website;
- creating a digital wine list;
- contacting Sellers to enquire about products listed on the Website; and
- sending purchase orders for products listed on the Website to Sellers and purchasing products listed on the Website direct from Sellers on the Website.
- We (or our licensors) retain all right, title, and interest in and to the Website, and nothing you do on or in relation to the Website will transfer any intellectual property rights to you or, except for the licence referred to in paragraph (b), licence you to exercise any intellectual property rights unless this is expressly stated.

Ordering procedure and payment
- When you place an order to purchase any products from Sellers through the Website, you are making an offer to purchase the particular products for the price notified by, or agreed with, the Seller (including any applicable delivery charges, and any additional surcharges and taxes) at the time you place the order.
- All product details and sale terms, including as to price, payment options, and delivery, are set out on the Seller’s page. The terms offered by a Seller to a Purchaser with respect to a particular product may vary from the terms offered to another Purchaser for the same product.
- When you make an order to purchase any products you agree to pay the purchase price specified by the Seller at the time of purchase, plus any applicable delivery charges based on the delivery option selected by you. All amounts are stated in Australian dollars. All purchase prices are exclusive of Australian GST (except as otherwise notified). Delivery charges will be additional to any purchase price and notified separately if not shown on the relevant Seller’s page.
- To facilitate the purchase of products from Sellers, you consent to us placing the order/s on your behalf with the relevant Seller/s.
- No contract for the purchase of products will come into existence until your order has been reviewed and accepted by the Seller and the Seller has notified you of such acceptance.
- A Seller may decline an order where there are reasonable grounds for doing so, for example, the products are no longer available or if there is an error in the price or the description of the products listed on the Website.
- You will be notified whether your order has been accepted or declined by the Seller as soon as reasonably practicable.
