  Section 1. Subdivisions 5, 6  and 7 of section 100  of  the  alcoholic
beverage  control  law,  subdivision  5 as amended by chapter 797 of the
laws of 1986, subdivision 6 as added by chapter 526 of the laws of  1939
and  subdivision  7  as  added  by  chapter 256 of the laws of 1978, are
amended to read as follows:
  5. [No retail licensee for off-premises consumption shall sell, deliv-
er or give away, or cause, permit or procure to be  sold,  delivered  or
given  away  any  alcoholic  beverage, other than as provided herein, on
credit: a retail licensee for off-premises consumption, except a  winery
licensee,  may accept third party credit cards for the sale of any alco-
holic beverage for which it is licensed; a winery  licensee  having  the
right  to  sell  wine  at retail for off-premises consumption may accept
third party credit cards for the sale of said beverages  at  the  winery
premises only; and any person duly authorized to sell wine at retail for
consumption  off the premises may sell on credit to any regularly organ-
ized church, synagogue or religious organization, wines to be  used  for
sacramental  purposes  only.  For purposes of this subdivision, beer and
wine products that are delivered and left at the residence of a consumer
without payment of the balance due thereon shall not constitute  a  sale
on credit.
  6.]  No  licensee  shall  sell or purchase any receipts, certificates,
contracts or other documents issued for the storage of alcoholic  bever-
ages except as provided by the rules of the liquor authority. The liquor
authority  shall  prescribe such rules for the purchase and sale of such
