Abandoned cart saver that catches viewers who leave
Convert an average of 15% of abandoned carts into sales
15%! That is a lot of cash that would otherwise be lost – amazing! This feature will track customers who leave their “cart” and allow you to send customized emails to them, reminding them of their potential purchase and inviting them back to your store. You can even include coupons to encourage them to checkout. Click HERE to read more about abandon carts and how the Abandoned Cart Saver can increase sales!
Why this is so important: This helps your conversion rate and makes you money that you otherwise would have lost.
A mobile friendly website that converts viewers into sales
Your customers are mobile – your business should be too!
In 2013 more people started using their smart phones to get online than PCs. Of these people, 70% will expect your website to load as fast as a desktop website. Our software ensures that epicFlowers mobile websites are speedy, responsive, and easy for your customers to buy from. If your site is not mobile friendly, you’re losing 20% of your online sales.
Why this is so important: When epicFlowers began creating websites in 2010, 4% of all sales were mobile, now in 2014 they’re at 21% and growing. If your site is not mobile friendly, you are losing money.
Point of Sale Integration Floristware, MAS, Floral POS, RTI & Mercury
Point of Sale Integrated
Point of Sales we’re integrated with: Floristware, The Floral POS, MAS, Mercury, and RTI (planned integrations: Flowersoft and Dove). POS companies may charge their own fees for integration for their end of the process.
Integrating a POS (point of sale) with an epicFlowers and Big Commerce store front saves time and money. Often, POS order information is exported to a custom system or something more popular like Quickbooks, so it’s especially important to make sure all current online orders are in the POS.
Why this is so important: This saves time, so you don’t have to double-enter your online orders into your point of sale.
NO Contracts, You are in control
No binding contracts with epicFlowers. We’re that confident.
There are no contracts to enter in order to become an epicFlorist. If for some reason you need to leave us, we only ask for a thirty days written notice. We feel you won’t want to leave, but you’ll have the choice without being penalized. It is, after all, your business.
Why this is so important: We strongly believe in helping florists succeed online with their second business model. A trusting relationship with complete transparency upfront is an excellent way to begin.
Reward your customers with loyalty points for each purchase
You like to be rewarded when you shop, so why not offer rewards to your online customers?
We have partnered with Reward Camp to bring all epicFlorists the ability to give back to their loyal customers. Reward programs have been proven to help your customer lifetime value and conversion rate.
Why this is so important: Anything that helps you keep your customers and increases their CLVs (customer lifetime value) is well worth it.
Easily get reviews for your products like you've never seen before
Get awesome reviews with powerful marketing built-in
We have partnered with Yotpo (funny name, serious ROI) to bring you the best review experience. This built-in feature makes it very easy to collect reviews from happy customers and use them for serious marketing purposes. Yotpo will dramatically increase reviews and turn one-time shoppers into return customers. To check it out, go here: Yotpo
Why this is so important: Creating credibility online is something many florists forget to do. With Yotpo you are going to be impressed to see how easily good reviews will flow in assisting you in creating a longer CLV
(customer lifetime value).
Remind your customers about Birthdays and/or Anniversaries
Your customers can sign up to be reminded about an anniversary or birthday extremely easy. It takes 10 seconds for them to sign up. We’ll automatically send the email reminding them 355 days later.
Why this is so important: Make it easy for your online customers to re-order in the future. Your customers will appreciate this service, which will lead to repeat sales.
We integrate your email marketing service with your website
We automatically add your customers to your emailing marketing software
We make sure all your customers who sign up for your mailing list are automatically integrated into your email marketing software. Don’t have an email marking software? No worries, we’ll set one up for you.
Why this is so important: Emailing marketing is so important when it comes to sales and a higher conversion rate. By having us set you up, you’ll save money when your email marketing team takes over.

Site SEO (search engine optimization) Setup
We make sure all sites are SEO friendly and ready
epicFlowers mobile and desktop websites are built SEO friendly. Built-in search engine friendly links and tags help your website to perform better and increase your web traffic. Our partner and host of our epic sites, BigCommerce, is serious about SEO features that are included with every epic site.
Why this is so important: You can have the best retail shop in the world, best website in the world, and best service and employees, but you won’t be successful if you can’t be found online. The famous saying “location, location, location” when referring to your retail shop is equal to “SEO, SEO, SEO” for being found online. There are many SEO ‘snake oil’ salesmen, but rest assured we keep it practical and stay educated on the best practices that Google sets.
Your Own Admin Android/iPhone App
Have access to your admin control panel on the go
Almost instantly after you get an online sale, you’re notified on your Android/iPhone device. You’ll also have access to your orders, customers and products on the go.
Why this is so important: You’re not always at the shop to attend to business, but with your admin website app, you’ll be able to keep up-to-speed at all times and anywhere with your phone.
