How can I update my website?
Think of your website as another shop window, when you update your shop for new occasions/promotions/seasons etc, then think about changing the copy on your website too.
You can also use your website to promote local products, events and specialities such as your wedding, funeral and corporate work.
The best way to make the most of the pages on your website is to think about how you set out your content.
Write paragraphs under the headers of:
Weddings - Write about the wedding packages you offer and include images of your designs for inspiration.
Funerals/Sympathy – show imagery of your bespoke designs and product shots.
Corporate – name some of your corporate clients, feature their logos (with their permission) and get some testimonials from them to include too.
Show case your gifts and Finishing Touches – teddy’s, chocolates and candles etc.
Please send all change requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can use your unique login details to make changes yourself using the self-service options.
Will I get my local online orders?
Yes, in two ways. Local orders can be defined by either the product type or the location it is going to be delivered to. Your own product range can be sold on your website and will only be sent to you for delivery. You should also provide us with the locations you deliver to and all orders placed on your site for those locations will come to you (except if you are closed for any reason (including holidays).
Is eflora available to ROI Members?

Will my website look the same as Interflora.co.uk and Interflora.ie?
The multiple eflora designs and page layouts to choose from will give your website a truly unique look which is very different to Interflora.co.uk/.ie. Your website will prominently feature your logo and all your shop information so customers will unmistakably know that it is your shop. Your website can also feature optional Interflora branding for customer trust, loyalty and brand recognition
How secure will my website be?
Our eflora website operates under the same levels of security as interflora.co.uk and has an SSL (Secure Sockets Layers) certificate including the trusted padlock symbol to improve your customers’ experience and conversion to orders. Your website also has a safe and secure payment page hosted by the UK's leading provider, World Pay, including Address Verification (AVS) which checks addresses against card issuers records during the payment process to help guard against online fraud.
Can I link from my eflora website out to another website?
Yes, you can create relevant site links on your website.
Can I link into my eflora website from another website?
Yes, we do recommend that you try to arrange links into your site from other relevant sites as this may also help your site to be found by search engines.
Do I need to set up an e-mail account?
Yes as, in addition to your telephone number, it provides another useful way for your customers to contact you. If you do not have an e-mail account, we will register one for you and provide you with all of the information on how to regularly access and monitor emails.
How will I know orders are from my site?

Who owns the customer data captured on an order?
The customer relationship belongs to the website owner (you), the florist they have placed their order with. You will be able to contact your customers (as long as they have opted in to receive correspondence from you). You retain your local customer data and if you use the Interflora relay network to have your customer’s order fulfilled by another florist, Interflora will retain that customer data.
