An ecommerce website allows customers to place orders directly on your website and pay by credit or debit card. Ecommerce is simply the industry buzzword for shopping online.
An ecommerce website allows you to keep your business open 24 hours a day and gives customers the opportunity to shop with you from their computer or mobile device during the evenings, sitting on the train on the way to work or even walking the dog!
floristPro websites have been built just for florists and have all the features a florist requires to compliment a new or existing retail business.
Setting up a new website can be daunting – talking about domain names, ecommerce and product uploads are not everyday terms to be found in retail floristry. At floristPro we understand that you simply want a website that reflects your business with colours, branding and design that is going to make you stand out from the crowd. You want it to work, bring you orders and allow you to update as and when you require.
Whether it’s buying your website name for you, providing you with ecommerce or simply making changes to your website for you, floristPro understand. Why? Because like you we have been florists too!
Once your website is up and running you will want to change products, update text and generally keep your website alive and fresh throughout the seasons (just like you would your shop).
The floristPro Dashboard will alert you to new orders as they arrive. With the ability to print, mark orders as received and then delivered, a full order history is always available.
With a secure administration area you have total control of your own website and orders.
Orders placed on your website come direct to you with the payment going directly into your bank account.
In order to take payments on your website you will need an payment provider through whom the payments are taken. Through our referral scheme with either CardSave or VoicePay you simply apply for an account and we then setup the online shopping on your new website for you.
With a secure shopping cart your customers can be assured that their payments are being made safely. An SSL certificate that we arrange for on your behalf provides this security.
As a florist you need special features from your website. For example, you need the time of the funeral and the name of the deceased on a funeral order.
At floristPro we are aware of these needs. Every website is packed full of features that will help you and promote your floristry business online:
People must be able to find your website using search engines like Google. The process of ensuring that customers can find you through the free Google listings is called Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).
floristPro websites are SEO friendly. Using keywords and phrases we work with you to make sure your website is optimised for the search engines to find you.
From the moment your website is ready for you to review, our support team are ready to assist.
Whether you want us to make changes or you want to learn how to update your website yourself, we will help, support and guide you as little or much as you want.
We have a library of “Getting Started Guides” that you can use to help you. We also offer all our customers access to our FREE regular webinars that will show you have to update your own website.
From the basics of getting into the administration section to more complex issues such as creating email campaigns and creating banner adverts we are only a phone call away.
