Purpose Built For Florists

Flower Store In a Box is an ecommerce website solution that has been purpose built for florists to sell flowers online.  We’ve been building websites for florists for over 20 years and have jam packed all sorts of features into the software that your florist website MUST have.

We are constantly updating our software with new features that you the florist have requested in 2021 we have realsed a huge number of new features.

Block Delivery Dates and Holiday Mode

You can easily block dates and set an entire time period as unavailable for deliveries.

Delivery Costs and Locations

Unlike almost every other type of ecommerce, one of the primary drivers of traffic to a florists website is their ability to deliver to a specific location.  This also means that most florists want to maximize their profitably by charging the correct amount for delivering to individual areas.

Flower Store In a Box allows you to have different costs for every area you deliver to.  You can also have “Included Delivery” areas so your customers close by don’t have to pay for the delivery.

We do this by suburbs rather than postcodes, because in rural areas the same postcode could be 20 kms apart and that costs you money.

Different Cut off Times for Specific Suburbs

You can set different same day cut off times for different suburbs whcih is useful if you service a suburb a long way away and need to cut off earlier than local sunburbs.

Turn off Suburbs

You can make suburbs visible or invisble really easily so you can remove them from your delivery area.

Make some suburbs not same day delivery

Set some suburbs as not same day dleivry so they can only be ordered at least the day before

Limit to your delivery locations

Another primary driver of profitability for you is the ability to limit orders to only the locations you do deliver to.  This means you don’t have to relay an order and ensures that you maximize the quality of your products.

Delivery Dates & Cut Off Times

The delivery date is an important feature in Flower Store In a Box checkout, when a customer choose a delivery date the software will check that the date has not passed, that you have not blocked that date (public holidays, Sundays etc) and if it’s a same day delivery that it’s not after your same day cut off time.

Customers expect that if your website allows the order to be entered that the order can be delivered. 

Timed Delivery Costs

You can also set your extra own timed delivery costs that will either add addiontal fees to the delivery fees or instead of the deloivery fee.

Weekend Delivery Surcharge Costs

Set extra surcharges for deliveries on a saturday or sunday to the standard delivery fees set up!

Date Surcharge Costs

Do you need to charge an additional surcharge for days like Mothers Day or Valentines Day? You can set this as a specific blanket delivery fee for the date or you can add it as a fee on top of the delivery.

Restrict Orders to a Specific Product Type

For Mothers Day and Valentines Day you may want to restrict people from ordering only from a specific category.  This is most important when costs are much higher for these periods for roses!

Mark Some Products Not available Same Day

Some products may not be able to be ordered same day you can easily mark products in a category this way.
