Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) for Beer, Wine and Mixed Spirit Drink Purchases Will Be Required as of March 31, 2023
Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) for Beer, Wine and Mixed Spirit Drink Purchases Will Be Required as of March 31, 2023 - Please Sign Up for EFT With Your Wholesaler
Effective March 31, 2023, Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) will be the required method of payment for beer, wine, and mixed spirit drink purchases made by retailer liquor licensees.
This new requirement is contained in Administrative Order 2023-01 - Payment for Beer, Wine and Mixed Spirit Drink by Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) - that was signed by MLCC Commissioners on January 19, 2023.
Many retailer licensees already use EFT for their beer, wine, and mixed spirit drink purchases. If you are already paying through EFT for these products, you do not need to sign up again.
Sign up now! Don’t Wait!
If you don’t yet use EFT for beer, wine, and mixed spirit drink purchases, contact the distributor you do business with right away. If you don’t know who to contact, call the Michigan Beer & Wine Wholesalers Association (MB&WWA) at (517) 482-5555, that has a list of distributor contacts.
Benefits of EFT
Payment through EFT streamlines product delivery and offers convenience, safety, and security for retailer licensees as well as wholesalers’ delivery personnel.
Contact your distributor or the MB&WWA at the number shown above.
The MLCC wishes to thank industry partners and wholesaler licensees for their hard work in implementing this latest modernization in doing business that will not only be convenient, but will help ensure safety and security.
Retailer licensees began purchasing spirits products from the Commission through EFT payments in November 2021. We appreciate your partnership in this latest step in streamlining the way we all do business.
