GUANGZHOU, China: Chinese e-commerce industry has developed at a steady rate in recent years. Along with this progress, the security and reliability of e-commerce platforms have been gradually enhanced and, in turn, an increasing number of online florists have flourished. FCI welcomes its readers to the Top 10 China Flower Delivery Services.
Amongst the newcomers is 1-800 flowers, an American listed florist company with a market value of several hundred million dollars, is regarded as the model of future online florists. Even though there is still a long way to go for Chinese online florists, 1-800 flowers has set a clear path for the Chinese floral industry to follow to become a listed flower online company.
Based on data analysis, the list of China’s top ten online florists reveals that at present, the operating models of Chinese online florists vary. However, the majority of them have entered into an alliance with bricks and mortar stores to fulfill orders.
There are limitations with this model. Flower orders can be delivered to buyers in three hours, but the quality of flower and service will be of lower standards. That is why Chinese florist websites fail to be listed companies. To some extent, it is also because of poor promotion and lack of product optimization that the florists are in a losing proposition.
Given this dilemma, the majority of florist websites center on the direct sales marketing. In the next few years, it is believed that Chinese florist websites will embrace the transformation and upgrade their operation channels or models, and reap the benefits in order to develop into a big brand.
Check out our top 10 list below and follow our links to the websites of the featured companies.
