PLATFORM OPTIONS – Choose your e-commerce platform.

PLATFORM CHOICE

For most florists we recommend the WordPress WooCommerce solution.

We can also deploy your store using other open source ecommerce platforms including Magento2, Prestashop, X-cart, Arassta, dot-cms and more

WooCommerce and Prestashop can be effectively deployed on a shared server however can benefit from a VPS deployment .

We recommend x-cart and dot-cms have a VPS hosting package.

Magento2 requires a high end VPS or dedicated server.

 

 

WooCommerce

Woocommerce is a dynamic e-commerce engine for WordPress and is our recommended platform for most florist shops.

When combining the flexibility of the WordPress CMS to the features and processes of Woocommerce you have a fast powerful and effective online store in quick  time.

This is also the lowest cost e-commerce platform we have when combined with the shared hosting and free SSL/TLS encryption certificate from Lets Encrypt.

 

Prestashop

Prestashop is a dedicated e-commerce platform that offers a number of benefits over other options. It is relatively lightweight and offers an extended range of features however they are largely provided by third parties at additional cost.

Prestashop can be effectively deployed on our shared server or on a low/mid VPS specification.

Magento 2

Magento 2 is an enterprise grade solution that is highly extendable and extremely flexible. It is also very resource hungry and is best suited to a dedicated server.

We recommended a local Australian dedicated server for the Magento 2 e-commerce platform.

 

 

SERVER OPTIONS – Choose your hosting environment.

SERVER CHOICES

Shared vs VPS vs Dedicated

Your server or ours.

All our servers are located in Australia to reduce latency and potential transnational network congestion.

What We Offer.
Your Choice.

Our goal is to empower florists with the tools they need to be successful independent of the relay services and order gatherers.

We seek to provide an independent e-commerce solution that sees the total monies from the web orders directed to the florist.

We have been asked how we can deliver florist websites fully loaded with products at such a low price ($500 fully installed and configured). Others charge as much as $5000 for a comparable website.

It starts with our philosophy – We want to help as many florists as we can.

We do that by not paying big commissions to salespeople to do the hard sell. We rely on web-forms and email to get your content and business entity data. We simply focus on delivery.

We do this by using one of the ten base store templates we have built. We then modify the selected template with your required branding and colours. 

You provide some of your best photos and  your contact details and we get your site live for a fraction of the cost of other providers.

 If you want lots of customisations or modifications moving forward, we can assist with that too.

No hidden fees, no transaction charges.

Australian owned and Australian hosted.

Fast and Simple.
