In countries where baby shops are closed on Friday/ Saturday / Sunday or on public holidays and the order falls on that day, the delivery will be made on the next working day.
7. Delivery Times
7.1 We cannot guarantee an exact delivery time or the delivery time slots offered, as this depends on the availability of our logistics team and our delivery service provider. Same day delivery is only possible; depending upon the convenience of our outlet. In most cases you will be given the option of choosing between morning or evening delivery.
8. Delivery to public addresses
8.1 Orders sent to hospitals, hotels, companies, universities or public buildings are guaranteed for delivery as far as the front reception/security desk. If your delivery is going to such a location please provide the full name and at least two telephone numbers of the establishment and your recipient and as many delivery details as possible.
8.2 In the case of hospitals, we will need the recipient’s ward and room number. We will attempt to deliver your order in accordance with each establishment’s procedures, but we cannot be held liable if these procedures prevent successful delivery. Please note that many hospitals do not permit delivery to individual rooms. Please check with the hospital before placing your order.
8.3 If you wish to send ﬂowers to someone staying in a hotel, you should specify their room number (if possible) and the name of the person under which the booking was made. Please note that hotel security often do not allow our drivers past the reception. We will deliver to the reception and ask the hotel staff to call the recipient to collect the ﬂowers from the reception. We are not liable for any delay and/or non-delivery as a result of the hotel staff not informing the recipient of the delivery.
9. Satisfaction Guarantee
9.1 On very rare occasions, products arrive at their destination damaged or fail to arrive due to an unforeseen delivery issue. If the recipient receives damaged goods, please contact us immediately so that we can arrange one of the following:
9.1.1 a redelivery on the next available delivery date; or
9.1.2 a full or partial refund (% refund depends on the speciﬁc circumstances of the issue).
9.2 Typically we will not offer both a refund and a redelivery. Where items have been damaged we will normally ask for them to be returned or for photographs clearly showing the problem so we can use them to determine what is going wrong with our system. It is important that we are contacted as soon as possible regarding any issues. We need to be informed of any issues within 3 days of the delivery date to give us the best chance of successfully resolving the matter. We will, at our discretion consider issues raised after the 3 day deadline but reserve the right to refuse the options of refunding or resending the order or providing any other compensation.
9.3 In the event that a small item, such as a balloon or rubberized nipple, should arrive damaged or be missing, we may be unable to resend that item in which case we would be happy to refund its value or provide a credit note of equal value.
9.4 If we believe that there has been an abuse of our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee policy or if there are persistent claims for refunds from the same individual or group of individuals, we reserve the right not to resend items and to refuse to take orders from these customers. If we make such a decision, we will inform the customer of our decision in writing, via email or over the telephone. It is important to note that this guarantee does not confer the right to an automatic 100% refund, but only to a fair resolution.
10.1 From time to time, there are small human errors made (for instance, very occasionally a message card goes astray or an item is forgotten). In such circumstances, we will do our best to make the situation right for the customer. If the customer believes that the delivered item
is substantially different from that described we reserve the right to request a photograph of the product so we can judge the situation. We may, at our discretion, offer a partial refund or a discount on a future order, but do not guarantee that we will do so. We believe in being fair and this is the spirit in which we will approach such situations. We would not, for instance, give a 100% refund if a message card did not arrive, as the customer has received signiﬁcant value in terms of the ﬂowers nor would we give a full refund if some items were missing, damaged or substituted; we would make what we would be considered by a reasonable person to be an appropriate compensation.
11. Duplicate Orders
11.1 If, for whatever reason, you placed two or more identical orders and you notify us, we will issue a full refund for the duplicate order, provided our local ﬂorist has not prepared or delivered the item. If we have not been notiﬁed and your order has already been assigned for processing you will not be entitled to a refund. We are not responsible for orders placed by mistake and no refund or compensation can be offered in such instances.
12. Special Requests
12.1 You can use the special request box to provide more details to us and the delivery team (desired delivery time, additional information for the address, extra phone number, important instructions etc). Under no circumstances can we guarantee that special requests will be met. If such requests cannot be met, you will not be entitled to a refund or compensation. We will not give any warning when these instructions cannot be followed.
13. Abusive Behaviour
13.1 We will not tolerate abusive behaviour to our staff or the delivery team in any way, shape or form. Whilst we endeavour to do our very best, mistakes are sometimes made. Purchasing from us does not entitle individuals to treat our staff abusively. If anyone is abusive to our staff, we will terminate any dialogue. We will not resume dialogue unless it is in a non abusive fashion and with the level of respect to which every human being has a right. We reserve the right not to deal with returning customers who have previously been abusive or offensive. We may block their account or take any other measures we wish to prevent them using our services in future. If this abuse is rather violent or physical, we will escalate it to court.
14. Cut Off Times
Our cut off times for deliveries are shown on our ﬂower delivery pages. However, these cut off times are guidelines only and, whilst we keep to those times in most instances, from time to time we may move the cut off times forward or back, to respond to business situations that may arise. Please note that cut off times are much earlier for delivery on Holy days and Mother’s Day so please order in advance to avoid disappointment.

In order to fulﬁl your order we require all necessary ﬁelds contained within the order form to be completed with the relevant information. By submitting your order and payment details, you are consenting to be bound by our terms and conditions contained in these Terms and Conditions and appearing anywhere on the site
Once the order is raised and conﬁrmed, our system will point you directly to the payment gateway where you will input necessary information about the bank card.

We will deliver the bouquet on the same day or the delivery date chosen by you when you raise the order.
You can pay conveniently and securely by credit card. We accept all major credit cards: VISA, MasterCard and American Express. For the payment process, we need the following information : card number, expiry date and card veriﬁcation. The card veriﬁcation can be found depending on the card type on the back or front of your credit card. The payment processing is done by the payment gateway company. All data is encrypted for secure transmission of SSL.
17.2 Payment failure
In the event your card payment didn’t go through, it can be due to a few reasons; the problem isn’t often on our side but you can have the following problems with your card:
1. Your amount is not debited – You might receive a message from your bank that the payment could not be processed. You will also see the payment failure screen.
2. Your amount is debited – In this case, you will be left wondering why you did not see any kind of notiﬁcation. You can send an email to [email protected] to check the status of the order and payment .
When payment failure occurs, it could be because:
1. Bad internet connection: A stable internet connection is absolutely necessary for a transaction to go through successfully. If the internet speed ﬂuctuates heavily then it could affect the transaction. Also, closing the tab or window will result in a payment failure or incomplete payment.
2. The payment system may be overloaded; therefore you can make the order again.
3. The card may not be suitable for Internet payments.
4. Authentication failure – Wrong details entered
Authentication failure happens when:
The wrong card details are entered
OTP cannot be veriﬁed
The 3D secure password was not entered correctly
In such cases, you receive messages from the bank that the payment could not be processed. Usually, money is not debited and you can try another transaction after few minutes.
5. Insuﬃcient amount of funds on your account
17.3 Delayed Notiﬁcation
Whenever a person makes the transaction, he/she receives notiﬁcations from the bank and the payments platform. A buyer should receive an email about the success of payment. But there could be times when emails are not delivered and SMSs don’t reach buyers. There could be several reasons why these notiﬁcations are delayed. You can wait for a few hours and if you do not receive any acknowledgement, then contact the seller or the payment gateway you chose to make your payment(We have more than one payment portals integrated for your convinience).
17.4 Payment Security
We recommend you order online using our secure order form or by phone. If using a credit card from outside the Euro zone the currency conversion will be done by the credit card company.
