Uses of the Florist One API - Affiliate Ideas

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.
Here we present to you common uses of the Florist One API and also some niche affiliate ideas waiting to be explored.
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.
