Flowers Online – Be Safe With Payments
The Internet has made the world into a global community. No longer is there a need to expend even the price of a phone call to send flowers across town, across the country or to the other side of the world. All you need is an Internet connection and a way to make payments. The result is that you can send flowers to anyone in a matter of minutes. But is it safe to use online florists to send flowers? The biggest issue is security of your online payment, and there are some things you can do to be sure that's done as safely as possible. Start by looking for a reputable florist.
The names really aren't going to give you much help here because you'll find international flower conglomerates with names like "Flowers Are Us" and with contact information like "1-800-Flower." There are some names you'll recognize and those are going to be your best options. A company doing two-bit scams isn't likely to spend thousands of dollars advertising on television and online. Instead, look at services offered by these companies to help you decide. Extremely limited delivery services and times may be a tip that this is something less than a reputable florist, as are too-good-to-be-true promises like "we deliver in an hour or less.
" Some online florists will count on the fact that you aren't going to see the flowers you send, and that the recipient isn't going to tell you that the flowers were second-rate. Choosing an online florist may take more time than actually placing the order. But keeping your personal information safe while you make that good impression is important. Copyright 2005 by D.
