DEAL DIRECT ?
direct to the florist that will actually supply
and deliver or dispatch
your flowers has several key advantages over dealing
with one of the numerous National or International
Internet Services (commonly known as a Relay
(or Network) Services) that blitz the
internet, take your order and act as a middleman
between you and the florist whilst publishing
dubious testimonials to enhance their reputation.
when you deal direct with a real florist,
who normally would (or should) inform you of the
total cost of relaying your order to another location,
an Internet Relay Service does not
reveal this cost to you. Of course you won't get
the relay cost component from the delivery florist
either, as you probably won't even know the name
of that florist.
some well known Internet Relay Services,
as much as 35% of your order value may go in COMMISSION
/ ADMINISTRATION / RELAY FEES to the Relay
Service that takes your order. The Relay
Service then relays your order on to
a local florist in the delivery area for processing
with payment generally made to the florist in
30 days minus the (not revealed) commission /
administration / relay fee.
ORDERING and PAYING DIRECT, ensures
100% of your order actually goes to the florist
providing your order, giving you 100% VALUE FOR
MONEY and cutting out this middleman inefficiency
and payment delay to the florist.
IS WHAT YOU ARE SEEING WHAT YOU ARE GETTING ?
Ask yourself the question, what systems are
in place that ensure that the local florist who
is providing your order, matches the wonderful
display that you are inclined to purchase from
a National or International Relay Service,
who often has procured the display image from
a stock photography collection?
PERSONAL SERVICE, It is much nicer, efficient
and quicker to deal directly with the person that
will actually be supplying, arranging and delivering
your flowers. You can correspond your requirements
in far greater detail and be comfortable with
the accuracy of your order. UPDATING your order,
if needed, is then also possible and you can ensure
the florist knows exactly what you require.
DELIVERY: It is so important that your
flowers arrive when the recipient is in or are
delivered to your specific instructions. By dealing
directly to the florist you can find a delivery
time or method to suit your requirements thus
ensuring maximum impact when your flowers are
hand delivered. When dealing direct, your florists
can confirm your delivery directly back to you
and a few even provide an emailed digital photo.
LAST MINUTE ORDERS: Whether you have forgotten
an important date or simply need flowers in a
hurry, you will find that florists are very accommodating
and if they can deliver the same day, they will.
Dealing direct, ensures your order is not being
relayed through a middleman creating possible
delay, error and less value.
