Also, you may want to "custom tailor" your order for coloration or style. Your comments such as "use pinks and mauves, for a new baby girl" helps your professional designer get close to the "look and feel" of your gift. Our methodology of ordering has given us the highest marks for customer satisfaction.

Frequently Asked Questions about controlling payment method options with your user profile
By selecting the Credit Card option, your Order Summary will display your Credit Card number that is stored in your Profile. At the Order Summary if you desire to use another credit card for this purchase, you may simply replace the other credit card information with the new credit card number and expiration date.

Allow Alternative Payment Method?
Some customers want to be able to choose their payment method on each order, deciding whether "to get the Miles" with their credit card or have a bill sent to them. If you want to be able to choose your payment method "on the fly", update your user profile to allow "Alternative Payment." By default this option is turned off. Checking "YES" on this option will present BOTH the Credit Card and House Account options on your Order Summary Screen; you can then select which payment method you'd like for this transaction. If you only want to be presented with the one option, then "click" the "NO" button. On the Order Summary page you will then be presented with that one option you selected.
How can I customize my Order Screen?
Your company's corporate account may require you to provide additional information for your purchasing department. If you have given this required "cost code" information to our sales team on your phone orders, this is where you will enter it. You may define the name of the field to reflect your type of data; for example, some companies call it a "Cost Code"or "Department", or "P.O. number." Enter this name in the first field. The next field contains the default value (if any) that you want to appear in the Order Summary. Put in the code that is used the most often for your purchases, or put in some characters that you will "add to" at order time. You may always edit this field at Order Summary. You can also indicate whether this field is required.
TAXES: There will be a 6% PA sales tax on your orders.
SERVICE CHARGES: Matlack Florist has one of the lowest service charges in the industry; our $9.95 service charge includes delivery.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do you select the florist to best fill my order outside of your delivery area?
We are a member of FTD and Teleflora which are the major florist networks. Matlack Florist best selects the fulfilling florist based upon capability and proximity. Capability means being able to fill the order to value at the appropriate price point and ensure timely delivery. Capability also includes that particular florist's specialties or product selections. For example, if plants are desired, a florist with a greenhouse may ensure a better plant gift. Selections are made from our nationwide database of affiliated florists, numbering around 52,000, which is updated monthly. At Matlack Florist if a florist has historically shown excellent performance, they are preferentially placed for selection. Over the years we have accumulated this data and the major floral affiliations, such as FTD and Teleflora, assist us in continuing to refine our selections. The reverse is also true; we "flag" poor performers to ensure the utmost in customer satisfaction. Beyond ranking them, we attach ongoing notes about their problem resolution, uniqueness of product, or any information that might help us. In just a few keystrokes we are able to select the most appropriate florist for that order. Proximity means that, if the time between ordering and delivery is extremely short, we can choose the best qualified florist that is the closest to the location to best fill the order.
Can we have our order sent to our preferred florist?
YES; as long as your favorite florist is a among the 52,000 member florists in one of the major national affiliations consisting of FTD or Teleflora. [In order to be a member in one of these organizations, a florist must meet certain eligibility requirements.] Simply enter the name of your favorite florist in the Special Instructions.
Can I customize my order and describe what I would like my order to be?
YES; We encourage our customers to add comments in our Special Instructions section to describe coloration and even types of products. Something like "use pinks & mauves, add a red rose, no carnations" directs your designer to make a quality product as close to your desires as possible. Because inventory varies at each florist from day-to-day, florists might not have exact flower varieties or colors available. The florist may substitute specific flower varieties and/or colors while keeping with the look and feel of your selected products and the Special Instructions.
