Best Online Flower Services Shipping Worldwide
SEND FLOWERS TO ANYONE IN USA UK AUS CANADA ASIA AFRICA
How often have you wanted to send flowers to someone across the Atlantic? Once, twice? Maybe more perhaps? Well, it occurred to me a while back that we should accumulate some of the best online flower services that have an international flower delivery setup. And lo, behold, found not many but few reliable flower delivery options that you can select to send flowers to USA, UK, Australia, manybe Canada or anywhere in Asia or Africa!
Before we start with the list, lets get the basics out of the way.
How Online Flower Service Works
Online Flower Services offer a plethora of flower bouquets. They can be categorized via price, occasion, or flowers. While writing about them, I came across some flower delivery services who offers combos and even other gift items such as chocolates, vases and other decorative materials. But what was most common was that they all offered a guarantee of freshness. If not for 7 days then, 5 days. Its sometimes a relief to know that the flowers will survive more than 4 days, after all you do spend a certain amount to give a gift of life, right?
Once you add an item to cart, you are taken through a process of checkout like any other online retail shop and then you get to review your order before confirming it. You also get to track your flower delivery. Depending on what date you have chosen for delivery, your order is shipped so it can reach its destination on time. Almost all of these services offer same-day delivery and some even offer weekend deliveries.
Also, each of these flower delivery services offer some sort of discount, especially on occasions such as mother’s day, father’s day, independence day etc. Do note that all these flower delivery services require some form of registration or guest checkout in order to complete the order.
International Flower Delivery Services
1.800 Flowers are probably the most famous online flower service shipping worldwide. Doesn’t matter which city or country you reside in, if you want to send flowers to someone who lives in another continent, you can be assured that 1.800 Flowers will probably have them onboard for a delivery. Shipping within USA is not an issue but if you are looking to deliver somewhere else, simply click “International Delivery” link and select the initial. If the country flag is not displayed, but just the name is mentioned, then you may need to call the given number to shop. You can choose to send an eGift card too valued between $25 and $200 if you like. 1.800 Flowers accept all major credit cards and PayPal to shop online flowers. If you are still unclear about anything you should read their FAQ.
A fantastic online flower deliver service with better prices. ProFlowers deliver worldwide but depending on the chosen country and city, the availability of flowers and gifts are limited. What you see on their main website is what you can deliver within USA. They offer discounts, multiple vases and add-ons so you can put a smile on someone’s face; be it a special occasion or not. To send flowers globally, simply select “International” tab in main menu and find the flower delivery country. Once you are directed to that country, pick you item, select delivery date, add to cart and checkout using credit card. You can also read up their FAQ page to get a better understanding on their procedures.
FTD has been around for over 100 years and is affiliated with several florists worldwide, so naturally it’s a brand that’s well trusted in the florist community. They ship internationally but don’t think you will get what you want for every listed country. From the seven I tried, only two countries had a floral arrangement available for shipping. So perhaps you should trust FTD but not to the extent of shipping worldwide. But still they are worth mentioning because of the extensive global reach. Under their companies, you will find many other affiliated online flower services like InterFlora; which you should check out because they are solely for UK and Ireland. Where FTD accepts payments via Credit Cards, InterFlora being their UK-based venture, accepts payment via PayPal, Debit/Credit Cards and Switch/Maestro. Both FTD and InterFlora promise a 7-day freshness.
Other brands which are affiliated with FTD are Shari’s Berries, Gifts.com, Personal Creations, Sincerely, ProPlants and more.
US-based flower delivery service which caters to 140 countries including USA of course. Their website guarantees 100% satisfaction and a special 24-hour delivery service, coast to coast. They have a plethora of floral arrangements and selections you can choose from to send to your loved ones. International country list is not very extensive and covers just some of the famous regions, but you will the tab for international flower delivery in their footer. If you are sending within USA, during checkout process you have the option to deliver before 12 noon for $4.99 or anytime during business hours. FYF accepts payment via Credit Cards and PayPal. I didn’t find an FAQ page but I’m sure their 24/7 customer reps are available on phone and email to answer any query that you may have for them.
InterFlora AUS deserve their own overview because, although they are affiliated with FTD and InterFlora UK, they send gifts and flowers worldwide which the UK franchise doesn’t. Since this feature is geared towards international delivery, hence I am going to talk about that first. Their main menu and footer clearly states Overseas Orders and they cover approx. 200 countries. Of course, you have to check the country if they even have a flower arrangement for you or not. If you still wish to get in touch, then their FAQ page has phone numbers along with many other answers. Once you add your item to cart, you will notice three drop-downs which will explain their delivery policies, charges, terms, and guarantees. InterFlora AUS accepts payments via PayPal and all major credit cards.
Sentiments Express - Pakistan
A Pakistan-based delivery service which is geared towards delivering within Pakistan only. But anyone from across the world can send flowers, cakes and gifts directly from their parent courier delivery service, TCS. Reason for mentioning this service here is because our own parent company is based in Pakistan and we owe it to our homeland to advertise about Sentiments. The biggest benefit with this service is that for someone who wants to send flowers to Pakistan, if they use this service, there is a 99.9% guarantee that shipment will be made without any hiccup. The order process is quite simple; pick an item(s), add to cart, fill in the details of sender and receiver, select a delivery date and time (yes with Sentiments, you can pick a time of delivery too!), pick a payment mode and checkout. Sentiments accept credit and debit cards, UBL Netbanking and Jazz Cash.
Bloomex - Canada
Bloomex is a Canadian based flower company which delivery flowers and gifts all over Canada. Their franchise in Florida, USA takes care of delivery in the states whereas their Australian shop in Sydney sees to deliveries in Australia. Once you add item to cart, the button will change from “Add to cart” to “Show my Cart”. You can then add any add-ons like a glass vase or a teddy bear or some sweet item to go along (or not) and then proceed to checkout. They don’t have a guest checkout system so you will need to register first. Also, their regular shipping charges are $14.99 (9AM to 12 noon) but if you want an express delivery for morning or evening then the delivery charges become $18.98 and 16.99 respectively. You can pay Bloomex via a Credit Card only. Their website states that they are affiliated with UK as well, but they really are not. Also, since I left an item in the cart, I got a call from them asking why hadn’t I checked out! Suffice to say, their CS reps are attentive and humane too! I almost got a 20% discount on the Blue Irises I had picked :/
The Bouqs - USA
US-based, the Bouqs Company has been around for a few years and they specialise in floral arrangement by local artisan florists, which essentially means that they are hand crafted with a dab of personal touch and can be delivered within two hours (sometimes). So the process is quite simple once again; pick a Bouq, add to cart, choose to select a vase (or not), pick a size for the Bouq and on the side read up on the fine artisan florist who will be doing all the hard work and creativity on your selected Bouq. Next, pick a date for delivery and yes, don’t forget to signup/login to get added benefits. Bouq accepts payment through PayPal and Credit Cards. Our special links give you $10 credit towards your first order.
Flowers Across Melbourne - Australia
Too cute to ignore, Flowers Across Melbourne have a been operating since 2009 and they are strictly Melbourne based online flower delivery service. They deliver to businesses, hospitals, apartments and of course residences also. They accept payments via credit cards, PayPal and in some cases, even direct deposit to their bank account. You can find all the relevant information on their FAQ page. Just to be clear, they do not deliver anywhere except within Melbourne, AUS. Their other franchise Flowers Across Sydney delivers flowers within Sydney, AUS. The reason they are mentioned here is because once again, they are too cute to ignore.
Express Gift Service - Pakistan
EGS is based in Pakistan and they accept orders from the around the world to be delivered within Pakistan. We owe it to our country to promote about their service and well, I did ask all intelligent questions to check their competitiveness and general knowledge about their website and products. They passed, hence… they are being mentioned here. So – EGS offers a variety of gifts to be delivered across the nation, such as; flowers, perfumes, electronics, mobile phones, baby stuff, toys, fruits and much more. Word to the wise, the prices are a bit steep. You can opt to select your preferred currency on home page and even you want to checkout, you can use the “guest mode” and select a payment method. For USD & GBP, they accept Credit Cards, PayPal & bank transfers but for native currency; i.e. PKR, they accept bank transfer, UBL Tezraftar and EasyPaisa.
And that’s a wrap for all of you who want to send flowers across the world. If you have been left dazzled by a flower delivery service that is simply outstanding then you must tell us about it, so we can add them to this ever-growing list.
Also, if you happen to own one such great service, then too we want to know.
