CFS websites include integrated flower ordering. Unlike other website providers, we don’t use wire services. Instead, we work directly with the local florists that you hand-pick and handle the transactions ourselves.
Each of the florists that you nominate will operate a self-managed store in the CFS system. With this, they can:
- Set their own prices, receiving 100% of the amount they define.
- Add, remove and edit their own product offerings.
- Set their own store hours and vacation.
- Set the time they need to make flower arrangements.
Your website marks up the florist’s wholesale prices and we split the proceeds with you 50/50. Our margin is significantly less than typical wire services. You may also forgo any or all of your commission, at your discretion, further reducing the retail markup.
