Are you one of the many people that have heard people talking about buying gifts and flowers online, but you worry about whether it’s actually safe to do so? It sounds so much more convenient to make purchases online, but you’re reluctant to give it a try because you’ve never made an online purchase. This article will guide you in safely purchasing gifts and flowers online.
The first thing you need to do is open one of the search engines on your computer. Examples of search engines are Google, Firefox and Internet explorer. It’s advisable to find a florist that delivers to the area you’d like to have the flowers or gift delivered to. For example, if you need an online florist that delivers in Cape Town, you should specify this in your search by typing “florists in Cape Town” into the search bar on the search engine.
This will bring up the websites of all of the florists in Cape Town. You’ll be able to view the flowers, gifts and services (flower décor at weddings and other events) available from each florist on their website by clicking on the links that come up once you’ve entered your search. Once you’ve found a florist that has the perfect online flowers or gift and delivers to the area of your choice you can start the purchase process.
Click on the bouquet or gift hamper of your choice and you should have an option to buy. An important thing to keep in mind when you buy flowers online, is that there are various sized bouquets of each arrangement. The picture used is usually a photo of the large bouquet of flowers, so check the details carefully before choosing the bouquet you want to buy and select the size you want. Of course, the bigger the bouquet, the more it will cost. Another thing to bear in mind is that there will be a delivery cost too.
Once you’ve selected the bouquet or gift that you’d like to purchase, it will be added to your cart. Some websites will take you to your cart with a “continue” button and others will have a “proceed to cart” or “cart” button. When you get to the “your cart” screen, make sure that you’ve only selected one bouquet and not two and that it’s the right size and cost. You will have an option to fill in a note for the card accompanying the flowers or gift to the recipient and select a delivery date.
Then you’ll need to fill in your email address and telephone number and the recipient’s name and delivery address (it’s important to get this right). Once you’ve typed in the area to which delivery should be made, your delivery cost will be added to your total.
From there you’ll be given a few options that you can use to pay for the flowers or gift, namely visa or master cards, electronic transfer, bitcoin and in some cases, PayPal.
