1.6Non-Acceptance of Customer Terms

From time me to time, we may deal with wholesale or large institutional buyers, with their own standardized contractual terms. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties hereto and supersedes and completely replaces all of Customer’s standard, supplemental or conflicting terms and conditions.  Neither Seller’s commencement of performance nor the delivery of Products or Services shall be deemed as acceptance of Customer’s standard, supplemental or conflicting terms and conditions. Seller shall only be bound to such terms only in accordance with this Agreement. Customer’s acceptance of the Products or Services from Seller shall constitute acceptance of the terms and conditions contained herein.



Orders placed by Customer through the Website must include delivery dates, quantities, and specify the Products concerned (the “Orders”).  While the Website provides functionality to allow Customer to input these details, Customer is ultimately responsible to ensure that Seller is appropriately informed of Customer’s Order. The Orders are non-cancellable and non-returnable, except as provided in the Refund and Return Policy below.

2.2Order Acceptance

Seller shall not be bound by an Order until Seller accepts it in writing.  Seller may, based on Product availability, stocking level, lead time or other reasonable factors, refuse any Order, or require Customer to modify any Order as a condition for Seller’s acceptance.


Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create Customer’s requested bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers at certain times of the year. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. Seller shall notify Customer if an such substitutions are necessary and request Customer to confirm. However, if Customer does not confirm any substitutions within the given time Seller has the discretion to cancel or modify the order. In case of modification of the Order, Seller shall take care to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, Seller will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another similar color.

2.4Special Instructions

Seller shall not be bound by any special instructions mentioned by Customer until Seller acknowledges such instructions in writing.

2.5Lead Times

Seller shall not be responsible for delays or additional costs resulting from the acts of third parties or events not under the Seller’s reasonable control. Without limitation, this includes all shipment lead times. All lead times or delivery times stated shall be deemed estimates, not binding commitments. If Customer places an Order that Seller reasonably deems to be extraordinarily large or complex, Seller may increase the lead time accordingly.  If changing conditions result in any increase in the costs necessary to comply with an agreed lead time, Seller may pass these costs to Customer.  If feasible, Seller may provide an advance estimate of the increased costs to Customer. If Customer refuses to absorb the increase in cost, Seller may increase the lead time accordingly, or cancel the shipment altogether, in Seller’s sole discretion.



The prices of the Products and Services shall be provided to Customer on an electronic invoice and Seller shall have no obligation to provide further pricing information to Customer regarding the Products. Customer’s acceptance of Seller’s quote and placing the Orders with the Seller shall constitute Customer’s acceptance of the prices. Pricing for the Products may be increased in the event of any increase in Seller’s cost, change in market conditions or any other causes beyond Seller’s control. The pricing for the Products is subject to change by Seller upon rescheduling or reconfiguration of the Orders by Customer. Seller reserves the right to correct any errors or omissions regarding the invoices, the Orders or the Products.


Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Seller, all prices quoted are exclusive of shipping and handling, import costs, insurance costs, duties and all taxes including, but not limited to, excise, value added, goods and services taxes and any other taxes, whether in the jurisdiction of Seller or Customer. Customer agrees to indemnify and hold Seller harmless for any liability for taxes in connection with the sale, including the collection or withholding thereof and including penalties and interest thereon. Where applicable, shipping and handling charges and taxes may appear as separate items on Seller’s invoice.


4.1Means of Payment

The Website may specify various means of payment through third party online payment solutions. Seller shall be deemed to have received payment only upon actual receipt of funds from the online payment solution. Customer bears the risk of any service error or interruption in connection with use of the online payment solutions. Seller may invoice separately parts of the Order or each shipment of the Orders. Customer agrees to pay each separate invoice pursuant to this Agreement and without the benefit of setoff or deduction.

4.2Past Due Amounts

Seller may impose a penalty of 12% interest per annum on any past due amounts. Customer acknowledges that this penalty is reasonable in light of the damage and disruption to Seller’s business that late payments cause. The penalty shall act as an indemnity to Seller for such damage and disruption, but shall not be Seller’s sole remedy in this regard.  Seller may avail itself of any applicable remedy in respect of late payments.

4.3Shipping Charges

Shipping and handling charges to and from Seller’s facility, or carrier’s acceptance point, as the case may be, to Customer’s address shall be paid by Customer to Seller, in addition to the purchase price of the Products, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Seller.

Seller shall be entitled to rely on and use Customer’s account information to fulfill Customer’s orders in the manner that the Seller deems most feasible.   In the absence of Customer’s instructions, or when Customer’s instructions are not feasible, Seller may, at its reasonable discretion, select the carrier and method of shipment, and otherwise ship in accordance with any of Customer's previous orders.  If Customer requests any change in the shipping method after the same has been selected, Seller shall not be bound to comply. If Seller agrees to change the shipping method, Customer shall pay any associated costs, including Seller’s change order fees.

5.2Suspension or Cancellation

If Seller believes in good faith that Customer's ability to make payments may be impaired, or if the Customer’s payment information is questionable or potentially fraudulent, or if Customer shall fail to pay any invoice when due, Seller may cancel or suspend delivery of any Orders or any remaining balance thereof. The Customer shall remain liable to pay for the Products. Furthermore, Seller may re-sell or otherwise dispose of the undelivered Products.


All deliveries will be made ex-works. Delivery of the Products to the carrier, or carrier’s acceptance point shall constitute delivery to Customer, however Seller retains title to the Products until Customer makes full payment for the Products, at which time title shall pass to Customer. Seller shall be responsible for requesting carrier to pick up Products, or dropping off Products at the carrier’s acceptance point, as the case may be.

5.4Risk of Loss

Unless Customer requests otherwise, Seller shall arrange for delivery of the Products to Customer immediately after the Products become ready and available for shipment. Customer acknowledges that delivery dates provided by Seller are estimates only and Seller shall not be liable for delays in delivery or for failure to perform due to causes beyond the control of Seller nor shall the carrier be deemed an agent of Seller. In the event of delay caused by such event, the date of delivery shall be extended for a period equal to the time lost as a consequence of the delay in delivery without subjecting Seller to any liability or penalty.  After carrier picks up the Products, risk of loss or damage to Products shall pass to Customer. If the Products perish while in the custody of the carrier, the Seller shall be deemed to have performed its obligations in full. Delivery of a quantity, which varies from the quantity specified, shall not relieve Customer of the obligation to accept delivery and pay for the Products delivered. Delay in delivery of one installment shall not entitle Customer to cancel other installments.

Returns & Refunds

If Customer claims an Order was not delivered, Seller shall have at least 3 days to verify the same. If non-delivery occurred for reasons beyond the control of Seller, such as due to carrier errors, inclement weather, or absence of persons tor receive the shipment, Seller reserves the right to attempt a redelivery.


Cancellation requests must be made prior to Seller’s delivery of the Order to the carrier. If the cancellation request is received after the carrier accepts the Order for delivery, no refund can be issued.

No refunds shall be made for reasons arising from Customer error, including but not limited to incorrect information entered by Customer into the Website Order form, or wrong delivery address resulting in unreceived Orders.


If there is a deficiency or discrepancy in the Order, not due to reasons beyond Seller’s control, Seller shall issue a refund to Customer, with no interest or any other penalty. This refund shall be the Customer’s sole remedy, and Customer waives any other remedy in this regard.
