Phgifts delivers Valentine’s Day flowers ‘on time, all the time’-A A +A
Wednesday, February 5, 2014
FILIPINOS are undoubtedly among the most romantic people in the world, so it should come as no surprise that we love Valentine's Day. In fact, an informal 2008 survey conducted in eight Asian countries revealed that Filipinos are the most into Valentine's Day, with 72 percent of local respondents saying they intended to celebrate the occasion. In addition, 71 percent of female respondents and 49 percent of males said that flowers were the most popular Valentine's gift.
Unfortunately, buying flowers as Valentine's Day approaches can be a hassle. Traffic to places such as Dangwa or Laong Laan typically becomes heavy on February 14 as people rush to flower stalls to buy flowers at the last minute. Plus, flower vendors take advantage of the many people buying flowers for their loved ones by raising prices. Prices of flowers can go up by 50 percent to 70 percent on Valentine's Day. And if you buy flowers from the mall or from flower shops, it can be very expensive.
But there is an alternative to buying flowers from Dangwa stalls or flower shops. Why not avoid the crowds and order your flowers online? There are many advantages to buying flowers on the Internet for your Valentine's Day date, including convenience and affordability. After you place your order from a trusted service, your order is delivered to your house or your loved one's house in time for February 14, sparing you from the hassle of buying flowers at the last minute so that you can relax and enjoy the occasion.
In addition, flowers can be cheaper when you buy over the Internet since there is less overhead and the savings are passed on to the customer. And when you factor in the cost of gasoline and the time wasted in navigating traffic to buy flowers at Dangwa, you are actually saving money.
However, Filipinos are understandably wary about buying flowers online, since they cannot actually see the product so they cannot evaluate the quality. There is also a question of trust; since buying online in the Philippines is still in its relative infancy, and you don't know if the site you are buying from is legitimate and will actually deliver.
Here are some tips on how to find a good online flower delivery service locally:
1. Look at how long they have been in business. The longer they have been around, the better since it indicates that they are reputable and have delivered satisfactory service to their customers. If a site has poor service then it would become well-known due to word-of-mouth.
2. Look at their product range. Do they offer a lot of bouquet arrangements that you can choose from? How many types of flowers do they offer? What other kinds of gift items do they have in stock?
3. Look at their customer support. How do they resolve issues that their customers have with their service? How responsive are they to their customer's concerns? When is customer support available? Is it only during office hours?
4. Look at their delivery area coverage. One of the biggest advantages of ordering online is that you can order from anywhere in the Philippines and get your order delivered to your doorstep. Do they deliver only in Metro Manila or will they deliver anywhere in the country?
If you are looking for an online florist that meets all the above criteria, look no further than Phgifts.
