Buying flowers online offers great choice, value and convenience. You may be worried that you do not have the same rights when buying flowers online as you do when buying on the high street but in fact, in many cases, your rights may be even stronger.
If you buy something online in the EU, you are covered by consumer legislation just as if you buy it in person in a flower shop.
Your Rights When You Buy Flowers Online
Your rights when you buy flowers online as outlined by ECC Ireland include the following:
The right to change your mind
Usually when you shop online you have the right to a "cooling-off" period of 14 calendar days where you can withdraw from the contract and return your purchases to the seller. You do not have to give any reason but bear in mind you may have to pay for the cost of returning the goods.
Please note however that some purchases, including buying flowers online, are not covered by the cooling-off period - for instance, hotel bookings, car rental, travel tickets and other leisure services are specifically excluded from this provision.
Other exceptions include:
Where a consumer exercises their right of withdrawal, the trader is obliged to refund them within 14 days.
The right to clear information
EU online sellers must provide you with full and detailed information, including their contact details, the main characteristics of the product or service and the total cost of the product, including all taxes and other unseen charges such as delivery charges.
Before the online buy contract is concluded the trader must provide you with the following specific information in a clear manner and unambiguous manner.
The express right to refund for delayed or non-delivery
Your purchase should be delivered within 30 days unless you agree otherwise with the seller. The vast majority of flowers bought online are scheduled for delivery with 24 hours.
If the trader does not deliver the item(s) within the period of time agreed, the consumer may contact the trader and ask that the goods be delivered at a later, convenient date that is appropriate to the circumstances. If the trader fails to deliver the item(s) within this additional period, the consumer is then entitled to cancel the contract.
Where the contract is cancelled, the trader is obliged to refund the consumer any and all sums that have been paid under the contract. This refund must be provided within 14 days.
