CNKTID has been around since 2015 and was developed by the leaders in the Technology, Alcohol, and Digital Marketing industries. Not only do we understand the struggles in which producers face, we have faced them ourselves.

CNKTID is for Licensed Breweries, Wineries, Distilleries and other Alcohol Producers.
If you contract brew or have a contract with someone else to make your beverages holler at us to discuss your options.
Sorry, no Homebrew or other homemade magical potions.
Besides a valid liquor license you will need and we recommend the following:
If you have gathered all of the things we recommend and have all of your ducks in a row, setting up your store should only take a few minutes once you are verified and approved.
It’s just a matter of uploading your store cover photo, inserting the links to your social media, adding your contact info, linking your preferred payment method, and linking your FedEx, UPS, and/or ShipStation accounts.
Adding your products should only take a minute or two for each product. We have made things extremely easy and basic to ensure an easy, fast, and smooth process.
CNKTID does NOT hold any kind of liquor license. We are simply a technology solution for licensed liquor producers.
We provide eCommerce software, just like Shopify and other providers, but we have all of the bells and whistles producers need to have built out to assist in navigating the legal complexities.
It’s easy, we send you an email with the full order details and attach a printable packing slip.
We will also send you (and any numbers you choose) a text message about the new order. So you can notify your taproom manage, or any others involved in order fulfillment ensuring no order goes unattended to.
We will also keep you customer’s informed with order updates and statuses via text message as well.
If you prefer to print and generate your own shipping labels you can do it easily right from the order page. Just click the “Generate Shipping Label” button and, Boom! Print it and you are done.
We have also integrated ShipStation if you have an account. All orders will be routed to your ShipStation account and will follow the rules in which you have set up with ShipStation.
A training on properly packaging your shipments might sound crazy, but trust us. It will be well worth the 5 minute training to ensure a safe arrival of your package. Folks have been jaded by the “Amazon effect” and will not accept anything less now a day.
Adult Signatures are REQUIRED for all alcohol shipments. It is the responsibility of the shipper, FedEx, UPS or your delivery driver to verify the age of the recipient at the time of delivery. No delivery should be left without 21+ ID verification.
It’s as simple as that! If you want to offer In-store or Curbside pickup, you just have to select that as a delivery method. Your customer will choose it upon checkout. Then all you have to do is pick the order and have it waiting for your customer when they come to pick it up.
No biggie. It is simple. All you have to do is contact the customer and let them know that they selected the incorrect shipping method. If it is going to cost the customer more just simply charge them the difference using the payment processor of your choice and generate the new label from the order page with the correct shipping method selected.
But they were charged too much? No worries. Simply refund them the difference from the order page.
We know that these can get pricey. We recommend you either build them into the cost of your products or you can create have a fee added on to every order to cover the cost.
If you would like to add a fee please reach out to our support team directly.
Shipping Alcohol is different for every type of alcohol. There are different permits for Wineries, Distilleries, and Breweries.
It is beyond important that you do not jeopardize your license by shipping where you are not licensed.
Please check with each state to ensure you have taken the proper steps to ship to them.
Good question! Well if you plan to ship from your facility it is a must.
If not, there are some creative alternatives and work arounds that might work for you. If you would like to explore those please contact our support team directly.
Well, there are multiple solutions for you.
First, start with your states liquor control board. They are there to help you and they are government employees. Our taxes pay their wages. It’s okay to ask them to help you out and provide you the latest most up to date information.
Second, when shipping to other states do the same. Ask the state you are looking to ship to about their direct shipper permits and rules. Wine has been shipping across state lines for years. This is nothing new. Don’t let folks scare you out of selling your products online.
Just make sure you play by the rules.
