Our Substitution Policy

  • Due to various seasonal and regional conditions, availability of some flowers may be very limited in certain areas. Also, specific flower varieties or colors may not be available for delivery on a specified day. Therefore, it is possible that the exact bouquet pictured or requested may not be available for delivery.

  • In this event, the florist will deliver a second choice of similar flowers and container of equal value and beauty. Every effort will be made to maintain size, shape, and overall color schemes of an arrangement, but there may be some variance due to designer interpretation. In single variety arrangements, variety will take preference over color.

  • If a particular flower or container is not available, an item of similar quality and value will be substituted. Substitution is only done when a situation arises beyond the control of our staff. In the event that a substitution needs to be done, the following guidelines will be used:

    • There shall be no substitution in type of arrangement; that is, no change in size or shape.

    • In the arrangement of assorted flowers, the colors shown in the online catalogue will be used if possible even if this means substituting other kinds of flowers of equal or higher value.

    • When a substitution is necessary, the utmost care shall be taken to maintain the overall effect of the arrangement illustrated in the online catalogue. For example, spiked flowers should be substituted for spikes and round flowers for round.

    • In arrangements of a single kinds of flowers, such as roses, the variety is of first importance, preceding color in this instance only.

    • Substitution does not means that we will replace a fresh cut flowers with a non-natural types; for example, we will not replaced a fresh tulips with a non-natural type or a sunflower with a plastic or silk. (......more details)

SSL Secure Sockets Layer

SSL provides sound privacy protection by encrypting the channel between the shopper and the merchant - ideal for the exchange of important information such as credit card numbers

Our web site encrypts your credit card number prior to transmission over the Internet using industry standard secure socket layer (SSL) encryption technology. For SSL to work you must use an SSL enabled browser. Most available browsers; version 3.0 and later, support SSL.

However, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Although we make reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, we cannot warrant the security of information you transmit to us

To find out if your transaction is secured, check for the unbroken key or closed lock symbol in the frame of your browser window. Or check the merchant's URL - it should change from "http" to "https" when processing secure transactions. Both Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer support SSL

What does W331 Declined mean?

This type of response corresponds to a decline from the processing bank. The authorization process is carried out by the bank and WorldPay has no part in the subsequent decision. The decline message is sent to WorldPay by the bank with no explanation nor justification.

The reason for a decline is often to do with incorrect information entered, which does not relate to your card.

For example, 

  • Wrong issue number

  • Wrong expiry date

  • Wrong valid from date 

  • Wrong security code etc

If you still have problems we advise you to contact your card issuer to find out more information.

If you need to pay for the goods by alternative means then please contact the business which owns the site.

What is W330 referred?

This type of response corresponds to a referral from the processing bank which translates into a decline on the Internet, because no further identity checks can be carried out.
The authorization process is carried out by the bank and WorldPay has no part in the subsequent decision. The referral message is sent to WorldPay by the bank with no explanation.

However, WorldPay is aware that on occasions banks refer for the following reasons:

  • a request for further information such as authorized signature or card holder identification

  • frequent use of the card within the last 24 hours.

  • a random referral

If you call your card issuer, they may say that they are awaiting an authorization code from the business. As this is an online purchase, an authorization code CANNOT be obtained and sent to your card issuer to authorize the transaction.

We would therefore advise you to try again later or alternatively use a different card.
