Sponsored by local flowers shops, order direct and save money when sending flowers.
Online PR News – 08-February-2011 – – Now is the time to watch your money and save every way possible. Most consumers do not realize that when they order flowers directly from the local flower shop, they not only save money but will also receive a fuller floral arrangement with a better quality of flowers.
When the consumer orders flowers from a non-local flower shop, they pay fees to that company they are using and ordering fees they call "wire fees" to place the order. When the consumer orders a flower arrangement for $35.00 with the $15.00 wire fee, the total for the arrangement becomes $50.00. That company keeps the $15.00 wire fee and receives another 20% or $7.00 from the wire service they used, such as FTD, Teleflora etc... These wire service companies charge the receiving local flower shop up to 30% or $8.40 in fees for being a member. So the consumer's $50.00 floral order now turns into a $19.60 order to the local flower shop that has to make the arrangement and deliver it. Of course, the consumer responds with a complaint blaming the local flower shop for a cheap looking flower arrangement.
