Things to note when ordering flowers online

February 4, 2010

Buying and sending flowers online is an easy and convenient way to show people just how much you appreciate or care for them. You can give a gift that brings smiles to any face from the comfort of your own home or office. However, there are a few things you need to consider when buying flowers online.

Variety of Flowers the Site Has to Offer

If you are not sure exactly what kind of flowers you would like to send you are going to want to choose a site that offers you a large variety of choices. That way you can browse their selections and be assured that you can find just the right flowers for whatever the occasion may be.

How the Flowers Will Be Delivered

Check the company’s website to see exactly how the flowers will be delivered. While local flower shops often deliver flowers professionally arranged in a vase or other container many online flower shops simply deliver the flowers in a box and the person receiving them then arranges them themselves. If you want a professional arrangement make sure that the company you are buying from provides such a service.

Product Guarantee

Remember you are ordering these flowers sight unseen. You want to make sure that the flowers that arrive are exactly the arrangement and quality you paid for. Make sure that the company you are dealing with offers you some sort of guarantee that you are getting exactly what you paid for or will make it up to you if it is not.

Eco-friendly Flowers

With all the environmental concerns that we have today, you might want to check and make sure that the flowers being sold by this online company have been grown in an eco friendly manner that will help the environment.

Timeliness of Delivery

Make sure the company is capable and will deliver the flowers in the time frame you request. This includes same day delivery, if you want that online bouquet to arrive the same day you order it. Many online companies do guarantee same day delivery however, there are some that do not and it is better to be safe than sorry.

Terms

Always review the company’s terms to make sure that they deliver as and when you like as well as to ensure that there is no extra hidden charge you may not be aware.

Costumer Reviews

When dealing with a new online flower company that is unfamiliar to you, take the time to read the customer reviews and see what they say about this company. Are most of the reviewers happy with the product and services or are there a lot of complaints? Reading the customer reviews can help you decide whether or not you want to purchase flowers from this company.

Following these few simple guidelines and comparison shopping will help you to find the right flowers at the right price no matter what the occasion.
