eFlorist Tips: Shopping Safely Online

Posted by eFlorist on 01/12/13 14:38

As we are all now taking to the internet in search of the very best Christmas gifts at the very best prices, but it’s worth making sure that you take care out there.


When viewing a website, you can see immediately if it is a secure site by seeing the padlock, pictured left. It may appear in the checkout process so don’t panic if it’s not there immediately, especially if you have heard of the website you are shopping with.

Share your experiences! The internet connects more than 1,000,000,000 people, by sharing your experiences and learning of theirs, you can be sure the products you are ordering and the websites you are ordering from can be trusted and will make sure you have the Christmas you are hoping for.

Know your rights. We’re not saying learn consumer laws inside out, but it’s worth being aware of how you are protected. If you’re spending more than £100 on a Christmas gift for that special someone, you might want to consider ordering using a credit card. In the event there are any issues, you are protected and can begin to claim your money back.

If you’d like to shop safely, securely and send someone special the perfect Christmas gift, take a look at our Christmas flowers.
