All alcoholic beverages must only be offered by creators who hold a valid liquor license. Buyers must be also over 18 years of age to purchase these items.
Most alcohol products may be sold via a Pozible campaign. However, there are different state laws on trading alcohol (see below for relevant legislation from each Australian state) and it is up to the seller to ensure that they are meeting all legal requirements, including holding the correct liquor licences.
What is the policy?
The sale of alcohol products is restricted to valid license holders, who must:
Hold the required liquor licence(s) and display their applicable licence number(s) on their public campaign page.
Ensure their rewards and products comply with the Alcohol Beverages Advertising Code (ABAC).
Only offer domestic postage (or also hold the relevant international license(s) in all areas and jurisdictions) and use a carrier that is capable of obtaining the required signature of an adult over 18.
Collectable alcohol containers may be sold, but must be empty.
Include this disclaimer in their description verbatim:
Under the Australian Liquor Act 2007, it is against the law to, or to obtain on behalf of, a person under the age of 18 years. All deliveries of alcohol must therefore be received and signed for by a person over the age of 18 years. Shipping address must not be a PO Box.

Offering alcoholic beverages as a reward for a pledge to your Pozible project in places besides Australia is the same as selling alcohol. Pozible requires the project creator to have an appropriate liquor licence or sales permit applicable under all relevant regional and national law.
