Gifting Hacks: How to place an order with NetFlorist

We’ve all been there… You’ve just given your loved one a gift that you’ve rewrapped four times and spent the better part of your weekend choosing. But instead of the delighted expression you expected to see on their face, they look at you with a forced smile and utter a perfunctory “Thanks, it’s great,” when it’s perfectly clear to see that your gift is not in fact “great”. As we said, we’ve all been there. And with Halloween, Diwali, Christmas and New Year’s Day just around the corner the pressure is on more than ever to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones.

From birthday gifts for mom to Valentines gifts for men and anniversary gifts for her, we’ll deliver the perfect gift for them. So, you have no excuse not to spoil them with something special!

Choosing the perfect prezzie

Something practical:

At the end of the day there’s nothing like a gift that has a practical use. Practical gifts can be enjoyed well beyond the special occasion. A knife set or chopping board is a gift that the recipient will be able to use over and over again.

Personalised gifts:

Most people love seeing their names, so a personalised present is the way to go. From apparel to homeware gifts we have a wide range of items that can be personalised, which is a lovely way to make your present unique and one that your loved one is sure to cherish for years to come.

Top tip: Save items that you love to your favourites tab on your NetFlorist account by clicking the heart on the top of a product image. That way you’ll already have some gift ideas lined up next time you’re shopping for a special occasion. Or even, when you want to spoil yourself − hey, we’re not judging!

Placing your order

Once you have selected your gorgeous gift it’s time to place your order. Simply click add to basket, select your shopping basket and then click checkout. After that you will fill out your delivery information, have the option of adding a special greeting card and then proceed to our secure checkout. The rest is up to us!

PS. You can visit your profile to track your order status.

We have also introduced a new credit system that can be used to buy gifts in the place of money. You can use these credits on the basket summary page during the checkout process, or on your profile page. Credits don’t expire so you don’t have to feel pressured to use them within a certain time frame. Plus, they can be used on all products even exclusive floral specials and discounted items.

Something else to consider

If you’re an FNB customer, this is for you! FNB has recently changed the way they approve online purchases. If you have the FNB App you can simply log into your profile and approve or decline the payment, replacing the standard OTP. To reduce the risk of fraud OTPs will no longer be sent via email. However, a temporary OTP can be sent to your phone number via SMS if you do not have the App.
