Frequently Asked Questions

Is Bottle right for me?

Bottle is an all in one ordering and backend platform for local makers. Bottle lets you focus on producing great food and drink instead of doing painful things like calculating order totals or putting together packing lists.

What makes Bottle special?

Flexible subscriptions. Because Bottle sends automatic, personalized reminders and order links over SMS, you don't have to force customers into a subscription or worry about first-time conversion rates.

How do I get started with Bottle?

Getting started with Bottle is free and easy. Once you sign up, a member of our team will reach out to schedule an optional, complimentary training session. Our team is on call to help you get setup and make sure you know the ins and outs of Bottle.

Can I cancel at anytime?

There’s no minimum contract for Bottle - cancel at anytime without penalty or hassle.

How does Bottle work with my current website?

We recommend that you create a link to Bottle from your marketing website. You can then redirect to your Bottle ordering page from your main website.

Can I use my own domain with Bottle?

Everyone who uses Bottle gets a Bottle ordering site (sendbottles.com/yourcompany). Many customers choose to make Bottle’s ordering site their sole web presence. Custom domains are on our roadmap, but currently there's no timeline.

If I don’t like Bottle, can I export my contacts?

Absolutely. You can export an Excel file with all of your user information.

What if I have more questions?
