Press release from:

/ PR Agency: Mixed Media, the ethical flower delivery company, has many firsts to its name. Apart from being first UK florist to offer ethically sourced Fair Flowers Fair Plants (FFP) products, was also the first UK retailer to use PayPal Website Payments Pro. That was in September 2006 when first launched its flower delivery service and when PayPal’s most advanced merchant account was in its beta stage. Now, nine months later, is one of the fastest growing online flower delivery businesses in the UK and PayPal’s Website Payments Pro has established itself as the best and most flexible online payment package available., an online florist based in London but delivering nationwide, entered a UK flower and indoor plant market worth approximately £2billion with online sales accounting for just 4% of that total. Since then the size of the online segment has grown considerably and online flower sales are set to bloom by an amazing 25% in 2007.

100% of sales originate online (though 25% of orders are actually taken through the call centre) and Managing Director, Will Wynne, believes choosing Website Payments Pro was one of the best early decisions he made:

“It lets us offer our customers a full range of payment options at a competitive price. Crucially, Website Payments Pro also returns customers to our site after completing checkout, affording us additional opportunities to sell and generate customer loyalty – these have been key factors in our early successes. That the PayPal platform has been so robust has been a bonus too. Around Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day for example we experienced very very heavy traffic and our payment provider handled it without issue.”
