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.
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.
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.
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.
