Uses of the Florist One API
The Florist One® API is the world's first API that can be used to sell florist delivered flowers completely inside any website or application. The annual revenue of the US retail florist industry is over $6.6 Billion dollars and flower sales are increasingly originating from the internet - but online flower sales are still limited to florist websites.
The Florist One® API changes this by allowing flowers to be purchased in a Flower Storefront on any website or application. Sending flowers now moves beyond a florist website and unfolds naturally as we move and interact across the internet. A commission of 20% is paid on flower sales through the API which creates new and huge opportunities for flowers to be offered where they could not be offered before.
The Florist One® API can be used by funeral home operators to offer flowers through their funeral home's website. This is a huge, missed revenue opportunity for most funeral homes.
Many visitors to funeral home websites visit the funeral home website for the sole purpose of sending flowers to a service being held there. Website visitors often have to hit the 'Back Button' and go back to Google to figure out which florist to trust to deliver to the funeral home.
Funeral homes can now offer flowers directly from their website, earn a 20% commission on every sale, and help their website visitors find what they are looking for. Flowers are delivered by the preferred, trusted local florist of the funeral home. This solves a problem for their website visitors and created an easy revenue stream for the funeral home since we take care of every aspect of customer service and order fulfillment.
Real, florist-delivered flowers have been slow to move to the mobile space. Huge opportunities exist. The Florist One® API let's flowers to be offered through mobile applications and Mobile Florist and Florist Now are two examples of this being done.
The Florist One® API can be used to create new mobile applications that exclusively sell flowers, or it can be used to add a flower storefronts to existing mobile applications, thereby creating a new revenue streams for these existing applications.
Any Facebook application can use the Florist One® API to let Facebook users send each other flowers inside Facebook. Flowers are sent without the sender having to know the recipient's delivery address through a system we call 'double-blind'.
The Florist One® API can also be used by dating websites to create flower storefronts inside their websites where members can send each other real flowers. A 'double-blind' system is used - the sender does not know the recipient's delivery address. The sender and the recipient never have to leave the dating website to send or accept flowers.
Online stores can add a national flower offering easily with the Florist One API. The online store can use their existing Checkout process and merchant account and simply add flowers as an additional offering for their customers.
