Right now, everything can be bought online. Go on, do a quick search on any of the big commerce websites and type in that book or hardware you have been planning on purchasing for the longest time. In fact, most of the time, before we go to the malls to go from one shop to another, we browse on the Internet to see if it is available. The reason is because it is much more convenient to order the items and have them delivered to your doorstep, and you know, the same is true for flowers.
Companies like Fresh Flowers does deliveries in Canberra and Australia wide. There are also online shops that deliver flowers worldwide. These online shops offer an online purchase service where customers can punch in their order from anywhere in the world, at anytime of the day. Because ordering online has become commonplace for all of us, you would not think that errors would still be incurred. But actually, simple mistakes such as misspelling a name or putting the wrong street on the information form is still happening.
Florists who offer the online service know that there is a possibility that a customer has filled in incorrect information, so they send out an email or make a call to confirm the details. But to avoid the hassle, here are a couple of guidelines you can follow so you would not make any errors on your end.
Go over the information form before submitting
The errors we make when we write down an address is actually completely understandable. Something as common as writing down an address or a number, we do not usually think we will mess it up, but we can. So before hitting the Submit button, go over the information form again and see if what you have typed in is accurate. Take the time to check the street name, the spelling of the recipient’s name, and so on. This is especially important if the flowers will not be delivered to you but to someone else.
Choose florists that are near the recipient’s area
To make sure the delivery is done on time, look for florists who already service the area the recipient lives. Do a quick search and make a shortlist of trusted online florists, read the customer comments, and choose the one you trust will deliver quality service. This will make it easier for them to prepare and deploy the flowers, and at the same time, you will be confident the delivery will be done on time.
Inquire about a tracking system
Some eCommerce sites provide a reference or tracking numbers so that customers can see the status of their orders. If the online florist does not have this service, ask to be contacted once the flowers have been deployed and right after the drop-off.
Add more information about the recipient’s area
So that there would be no hitches in the delivery, provide additional information that you think would be pertinent to the delivery. For instance, are there road constructions? What is the colour of the recipient’s gate? Is it in an apartment building, and would they require an ID to drop off the flowers at a tenant’s doorstep? Also, include key landmarks that would help them find the address.
It is easy to overlook these when we order online, which is why mistakes and delays still happen. Follow these simple tips and make sure your delivery will run perfectly.
