Pricing Guidelines

All pricing information must be submitted 60 days prior to pricing taking effect.

ISLD will lock prices on the 10th of every month effective the first of the upcoming month (or the next business day if the 10th falls on a weekend).

All pricing should be verified with the ISLD Pricing Calculator.*

*All allocated and special order products must select “Yes” for Single Pick and “Yes” for Special Order/Allocated item to calculate the correct pricing.

*When calculating desired retail price per bottle, it must end in .45 or .95*

Price Reductions: PRs have a minimum & maximum of 60 days per size. If a supplier elects to run an additional one-month discount to offer a three-month consecutive discount, SPA will need to be used for the first or third month. The sale price may not be below the category floor price.

Minimum Product Discounting

  • 375ml – Must feature a minimum $1 price reduction
  • 750ml – Must feature a minimum $1 price reduction
  • 1750ml – Must feature a minimum $3 price reduction
  • Please note: PRs are a price reduction in the FOB and share the discount with ISLD. Please use the pricing calculator to confirm accuracy in the targeted discounted price.

Supplier Price Allowance: All Supplier Price Allowance (SPA) forms must be submitted 60 days prior to effective date. SPAs have a minimum of 30 days and a maximum of 60 days per size. Back-to-back SPAs are permitted. All SPAs must be submitted on the SPA Letter Template via email to Pricing. The sale price may not be below the category floor price.
Please note: SPAs are an allowance on the total case cost, in which the supplier owns the entire discount. The SPA reflects the total discount per case (ex. bottle discount x warehouse pack = total SPA discount).

Pack Changes: All pack changes MUST be submitted by ISLD paper quote emailed to Pricing and must be submitted 60 days prior to the effective date.

Vendor Changes: All vendor changes MUST be submitted in a written letter from both suppliers on company letterhead, 60 days prior to the effective date and emailed to ISLD Purchasing.

Broker Changes: All broker changes MUST be submitted in a written letter from the supplier on company letterhead, 60 days prior to the effective date and emailed to ISLD Purchasing. The letter must include the current brokerage name, the new brokerage name and the effective date of the change.

Cost Per Ounce Relationship Guidelines

The Idaho State Liquor Division believes that, when larger sizes are offered, Idahoans should have the option to choose better value on larger sizes.  The price to the customer on a cost per ounce basis must be lower on a larger size.

The everyday regular shelf price of the 1750ml size be priced no more than 2x the everyday regular shelf price of the 750ml size.

The 1000ml pricing must always be a better cost per ounce every day than the 750ml on deal. The 1000ml pricing may NOT pulse at any time.

The 375ml pricing (lowest Price Reduction (PR), if discounted) must always be a higher cost per ounce than the everyday price of the 750ml.

ISLD requires all vendors to verify their cost per ounce relationship between all sizes before submitting any price changes. Any vendor questions can be emailed to Pricing.

Additional Pricing Guidelines:

Gift Set/OTO: All gift set/seasonal OTOs offerings MUST provide an FOB reflecting the lowest shelf price of the primary item size on deal from the last 12 months.

New Product Submission: All new products MUST be submitted by through the online product submission form with all other required documents for a new product submission. Details on the new product listing guidelines are located here: Product Listing Guidelines.

Display & POD Programming: To qualify for display programs, ISLD will require all retail displays (floor and POD) to feature a discounted price on the product size featured for the entire two months. ISLD’s goal is to ensure consumers always have a discounted value for the products on display in Idaho retail stores. We understand this most likely means displays will not feature both 750ml and 1750ml moving forward during the same display period.
