You Have Questions. We Have Answers.
What is BloomNation?
BloomNation is a marketplace where customers can discover unique designs offered by real local florists from all over the country.
Do we need to provide any personal or private information for payments?
We know how important it is to keep sensitive information private. Once you receive your first order, we will send you a physical check the next day. At that point, you can request to continue receiving checks or set up other payment systems (bank deposit, paypal) for your convenience. Best of all, the more orders you get, the faster you get paid. No more waiting around for payday!
Are you just another wire-service with lower fees?
We are fundamentally 100% different than a wire-service. BloomNation is built to be a crowd-sourced platform. What that means is that the site is run by you, the florist! We are just the magic to make it happen. It’s YOUR products, YOUR prices and YOUR brand! We don’t compete with your business, we don’t sell you orders, we don’t hide you from the customers, and we don’t charge you an arm and a leg to use it! It’s like we are the stage, flowers are the music and YOU are the Rock Star.
Won’t you be taking away orders from my business?
Absolutely not! BloomNation is not looking to replace your online presence, it’s looking to ADD to your business by attracting customers who normally use wire-services! Through hundreds of hours of research and studies, we found that consumers primarily use wire-services because it’s easy and convenient! No one wants to spend the time searching through individual sites and risk giving their credit card information to a merchant they don’t know. BloomNation makes it easy for the consumers who like the convenience and security of a wire-service, but gives the florists the brand recognition and exposure they deserve.
Does BloomNation give me access to my customers?
Of Course! That’s the point of BloomNation! Customers know who their florist is and florists know who their customer is! This creates a direct relationship that creates the highest customer and florist satisfaction, and we are all for it!
I already have my own site, why do I need another service?
FACT: consumers do not like going to individual florists sites. They love convenience! Browsing dozens of local sites to find a florist doesn’t happen. THAT’S WHY THE WIRE-SERVICES ARE DOMINATING THE INDUSTRY. BloomNation is built to be JUST as easy as a wire-service site for the consumer, and have all the benefits of having an individual site for the florists like you! Trust us, we have done our homework.
I have been burned by other services, why does BloomNation process the Credit Cards?
It’s time to leave the wire-service days behind! We give customers the security and comfort of knowing that their credit card information is held securely in one place, so they can shop freely throughout the country without worrying about every local merchant having their credit card information. This concept has been proven by many other platforms (eBay, Amazon, Etsy, etc). BloomNation also manages and handles the fraudulent transactions on your behalf so you don’t to worry about internet fraud or scams. We have built a secure payment gateway that allows us to process the credit cards, yet gives you access to the funds almost immediately. We can pay you in a fast, secure and reliable manner.
How are you going to Market the consumer site?
Generally, our strategy is to educate the consumer about the costs of going to a middleman and how shopping locally with florists directly helps everyone. Specifically, we are utilizing advance techniques as well as clever viral marketing to gain attraction to shopping locally through BloomNation’s consumer site. SEO, META, CPC, PPC, CPA??? Let us worry about that, you just worry about providing the best product at the best prices!
How does BloomNation make any money?
BloomNation is completely changing the online floral game, revolutionizing the way flowers are purchased online. The 10% allocation is to cover our expenses of credit card and bank transfer fees. Our main goal is to get florists back in control with a transparent and honest platform run by the florists themselves. Once the system has scaled up, the community of florists will come together to push this project further.
Who is behind BloomNation? Are you part of any other company?
BloomNation is 100% independently owned and has zero affiliation with any other company. We do not partner with any other service and only allow local florists to use our platform.
