The easiest way to cancel your order is via the “My Account” area of the Flor Affair website. You can also cancel by contacting Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org. At peak periods we begin processing orders earlier than usual, to account for the large volume of deliveries. This means that we may need up to 2 days’ notice for any changes to be made.

Where notice is provided after that time, please note you will still receive and be charged for your next delivery (as we will have already started cutting your flowers), but your pause or cancellation instruction will take effect after that delivery.

4. DELIVERY POLICY
4:1 Recipient Address and Contact Details
The email that is sent on completion of the placing your order contains all the key information pertaining to your order. It is very important that you check this to ensure no errors have been made.
If we are provided with an incorrect address and the flowers are sent out for delivery before the error is highlighted, you are not automatically entitled to a resend of a fresh bouquet. In the event the flowers are irretrievable, we may, at our discretion, arrange for another bouquet to be sent out, subject to the details of the specific situation.
The sender is responsible for providing a daytime delivery address, local daytime telephone number for the intended recipient and a postal code where applicable. Orders without a local recipient contact number cannot be guaranteed and may be delayed.
A contact number for the recipient is very important, especially in cases where the recipient lives in a gated community and the driver / carrier will need access, or for rural addresses where the driver may need directions.
4:2 Same day delivery
Same day delivery is available in Dublin City and County only. Orders for same-day delivery must be placed before 1:00 pm Monday-Saturday. And will be subject to a ‘same day delivery charge’
4.3 Next day delivery
Deliveries outside the Dublin City and County area are available for next working day delivery Monday – Friday (excluding Bank Holiday Monday and Public Holidays). Orders for next day delivery are delivered by our nationwide carrier and must be placed before 4:00pm. After 4:00pm, next day delivery is available for Dublin City and County only.
4:4 Deliveries to hospitals
Deliveries to hospitals can be problematic because patients often move from ward to ward, or are discharged. This means that we are sometimes unable to deliver orders for customers at a very emotional time. However, many of these problems can be avoided by ensuring that we have accurate and up-to-date information about the ward that the recipient is in.
It is particularly important that you provide the full name of the recipient of the order as there can be several patients with the same name in the same hospital. This can lead to errors in the delivery that are beyond our control. Most hospitals do not allow drivers to take flowers directly to wards because of health and safety regulations and in such cases our flowers will be delivered to reception or post rooms.
Some wards in hospitals do not allow flowers to be kept by patients. You should therefore check that the ward to which you wish to send flowers allows patients to have flowers on the ward. If flowers are not accepted in the ward, we shall not be able to refund the cost of the bouquet.
Some hospital post-operation rooms have a policy of refusing to accept flowers for either patients or members of staff; it is important to check that the hospital is prepared to accept flowers. If the hospital will not accept the flowers, we will not be able to refund the cost of the bouquet.
4:5 Receipt of deliveries
Flowers sent to hospitals, military bases and business addresses will be delivered to a main reception or mailing room prior to internal distribution; When delivering to these establishments, the signature of any person authorised to accept delivery on behalf of the organisation shall be accepted as proof of delivery to your chosen recipient.
4.6 Failure to deliver
A daytime delivery address and valid local phone number must be provided when placing your order.If there is nobody home to accept delivery or no answer on the telephone number provided, the driver will leave a voicemail (where applicable) or calling card (where possible) to notify the recipient of attempted delivery.Where possible, the driver may attempt to leave the parcel in a safe place (such as a porch) or they may deliver to a neighbour unless requested not to when placing the order.
4.7 Re-attempts to deliver Dublin City or County
4.7.1 Dublin City & County deliveries are made Monday-Saturday between business hours (9:00 am – 6:00pm)
4.7.2 When possible, our driver may reattempt delivery later that day. If delivery has been unsuccessful, we will endeavour to notify you as soon as possible.
4.7.3 In cases of an incorrect or insufficient address, or change of address for Dublin City or County deliveries, an re- delivery fee of €8 will occur to redirect the flowers to the new address.
4.7.4 If there is nobody home to accept delivery, no safe place to leave the flowers, and no neighbour to take in the flowers, an additional fee of €8 will occur for redelivery on the next possible day.
4.8 Re-attempts to deliver Countrywide (outside Dublin City & County)
If there is nobody home to accept delivery, no safe place to leave the flowers, and no neighbour to take in the flowers, delivery will be reattempted on the next working day.
After two delivery attempts an additional delivery charge of €8 may occur for a third attempt.
In cases where an insufficient or incorrect address has been provided for deliveries outside of Dublin City or County, or an incorrect or invalid phone number has been provided, an additional fee of €8 will occur to redirect the flowers to the correct or new address.
4.9 Timing of deliveries including Peak Periods
Every effort will be made to deliver your flowers on the date requested, however this date may be delayed due to circumstances outside our control, or if insufficient information has been provided.
Deliveries are made during daytime delivery hours (between 9am-6pm). Specific delivery times or dates cannot be guaranteed, and during especially busy periods deliveries may take place outside normal delivery hours.
During extremely busy periods, such as Christmas day period, Valentine’s Day period, Mother’s Day period, we reserve the right to extend our delivery window to delivery from 7am to 9pm in order to guarantee that all orders will be delivered on the day requested. However if we miss this delivery time but still deliver the flowers, we will not make a full refund. In the event of a missed delivery, we will discuss with the customer what a reasonable discount might be in the given situation. By buying flowers from Flor Affair you are not entering into a contract that guarantees delivery on a certain date during these periods.
It is also possible that, during this exceptionally busy periods, we may opt to deliver the gift a day or two early to avoid disappointment.
4.10 Delivery Instructions
During the checkout phase on our website, we provide you the opportunity to leave us special delivery instructions. If you have any special instructions regarding delivery, for example if you do not wish for your flowers to be left with a neighbour in the event that there is no one home, please enter your instructions here.
We pass this information directly to our local drivers and nationwide couriers and we will always do our best to ensure your instructions are followed. However this is not always possible. For example, if you have asked us to leave the flowers with a neighbour but the neighbours are also out, we may either leave it somewhere secure around the property or if this is not suitable, reattempt delivery following working day.
If we follow the delivery instructions and the item is subsequently stolen, the loss is the responsibility of the customer. It is also possible that we may not follow the delivery instructions if we believe there is a great chance of the order being stolen.
Flor Affair will not contact a recipient in advance to arrange a delivery time. Putting a phone number in the delivery instructions box does not mean that we will contact the recipient to agree a delivery time, as this is not possible for us to do. The recipient’s phone number is used by our drivers to contact the recipient if they have trouble locating the address or if nobody is home. When the order is being delivered by our nationwide couriers, although we will ask you for a phone number for the recipient it is for our use and not the courier’s as they do not offer that option as part of their service.
5. Satisfaction Guarantee
We aim to delight our customers by delivering fresh flowers, in great condition, on time and although we do our best to ensure that this is the case , on very rare occasions, flowers arrive at their destination damaged or fail to arrive due to an unforeseen delivery issue. If the recipient receives damaged flowers, please contact us immediately so that we can arrange one of the following:
a re-send on the next available delivery date; or
a full or partial refund (% refund depends on the specific circumstances of the issue).
The decision as to whether to offer a replacement bouquet or a refund is made at our discretion. Typically we will not offer both a refund and a resend. Where flowers have been damaged we will normally ask for them to be returned or for photographs clearly showing the problem so we can use them to determine the cause of the issue. It is important that we are contacted as soon as possible regarding issues. We need to be informed of any issues within 24 hours of the delivery to give us the best chance of successfully resolving the issue. We will, at our discretion consider issues raised after the 24 hour deadline but reserve the right to refuse the options of refunding or resending the order.
If we believe that there has been an abuse of our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee/Damaged flowers policy or if there are persistent claims for refunds from the same individual or group of individuals, we reserve the right not to resend flowers and to refuse to take orders from customers. If we make such a decision, we will inform the customer of our decision in via email or via telephone. It is important to note that this guarantee does not confer the right to an automatic refund, but only to a fair resolution.
Our flowers are occasionally sent out in bud form meaning they will last longer with the recipient. If you receive flowers that do not seem fresh, please contact Customer caret at email@example.com to let us know. If, at our sole discretion, the flowers do not meet our high freshness standards, we will give you the choice of a free replacement at our next available delivery date, or a refund. Please note that you will need to email us a photo of the un-fresh flowers within 24 hours of receipt in order to be eligible for a refund. If we offer you a refund, we will refund you the full amount within 3 days. Please note that banks might take an additional 7 days to refund the amount to your card.
5.2. Shelf-life of flowers
Our flowers are incredibly fresh. This is something we pride ourselves on and it’s our policy to only send out the very best flowers to our customers. Our flowers normally bloom for at least seven days and with proper care can last even longer. Note that shelf life does vary according to flower variety and the temperature they are kept at.
Our bouquets are special and need special care. It is important that the flowers are cared for correctly as putting them by heat sources or draughts, or failing to change the water and cut the stems regularly, will kill them very quickly. We include instructions and flower food with all our cut flowers arrangements. If we are informed that our flowers have died very quickly, we may, at our sole discretion, choose to resend another bouquet if we believe that there was a genuine issue with the flowers. If flowers have not been properly cared for, we will not resend the flowers.
While we do everything we can to make sure our flowers are delivered, sometimes mistakes do happen and deliveries don’t turn up. If we fail to deliver your order (i.e. if your flowers have not arrived within 3 days of their intended delivery date) we will send you a free replacement on our next available delivery date, or a refund. If we offer you a refund, we will refund you the full amount within 3 days. Please note that banks might take an additional 7 days to refund the amount on your card.
5.3 Changes to Your Order
If you wish to make changes to or cancel your order, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on +353 1 8900 242
Please note that any changes to your order (eg: delivery address, gift message, additional items, product selection) must be made 24 hours before the delivery date to ensure that we have time to amend the order prior to dispatch. Although we will always try our best to make the changes you request, we cannot guarantee we shall be able to make the changes. Requests for changes or cancellations made within 24 hours of the delivery date, if possible, will incur a €8 administration fee. Orders placed or cancelled after our offices have closed on Saturday or on Sundays or Bank
Holidays will be treated as having been received on the following working day.
Please note that once orders are “In Transit” this means they have left our possession and are being managed by delivery partners. Thus once orders are “In Transit”, changes or cancellation will not be possible.
Please note that during our extremely busy periods surrounding Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Christmas, we ask that you give us 48 hours notice to process changes or cancellations. During our peak times, any changes requested within 48 hours of the delivery date cannot be guaranteed due to the volume of orders being processed.
Please understand that due to the perishable nature of flowers, we are unable to accept returns. We offer customers refunds or replacement flowers if the flowers are not delivered to an acceptable quality, as detailed above.
6.1 Flower availability and substitution
All floral products are subject to availability. In the event of any supply difficulties or if the flowers we have received from our growers that are needed to make up your order do not meet our high quality standards, we reserve the right, at our absolute discretion, to substitute any product with an alternate product of a similar style and equivalent (or greater) value and quality.
6.3. Fraudulent behaviour
If we believe that an order may be fraudulent in nature, for whatever reason, we reserve the right to cancel the order and refund the funds. We are under no obligation to reveal why we believe the order to be fraudulent. We will co-operate with the police regarding any criminal investigations. We reserve the right to refuse to serve customers, block their IP address from accessing our website and any other blocking or fraud prevention measures we feel may be necessary to implement from time to time.
