Changes to your order

If you wish to change your order, please do so via 0800 55 55 42 or by the website or; email us at admin@budflorists.co.nz  until such time as the ‘My Account’ area of Bud Florists website is activated. We'll always do our best to make changes for you but; Please note that once orders have been 'assigned to by way of order placement' then it will be difficult to make changes that can be accepted.

For peak season (Valentine's Day and Mother's Day), we are unable to make any changes to any order placed.

Cancelling your order

Orders can normally be cancelled up to 48 hours before the intended delivery date. You can cancel your order via 0800 55 55 42.

For peak season (Valentine's Day and Mother's Day), we are unable to cancel orders.

Payment problems

Our website has a secure checkout (we use dps payment gateway, an extremely secure e-commerce option), so we encourage you to place your orders online. However, occasionally, bank-related payment failures occur that prevent us from accepting your order immediately.

Occasionally, card details that are entered correctly and backed by sufficient funds are not validated because the card issuer is performing a random security check. In these cases, although we'll have received your order, we'll need to take payment via our 0800 number so, please, do not hesitate.

We'll email or call you as soon as possible in these circumstances. If you receive a message telling you that payment has not been validated, please contact our customer service team immediately to ensure your order is delivered on time.

Owing to time differences, payments made out of office hours, or problems getting hold of you via the contact details you've provided, we're sometimes unable to process a valid payment prior to the requested delivery date. Although this delay is regrettable, it is outside our control and we cannot offer any form of refund in these circumstances.

Flower availability and substitution

All floral products are subject to availability. In the event of any supply difficulties or if the flowers we have received from our growers that are needed to make up your order do not meet our high quality standards, we reserve the right to substitute any product with an alternate product of a similar style and equivalent (or greater) value and quality. Please note that foliage and sundries (including vases) may be substituted without notice.

Damaged flowers

Although we do our best to ensure that this does not happen, on very rare occasions, flowers arrive at their destination damaged. If the recipient receives damaged flowers, please contact us immediately so that we can arrange one of the following:

  • a re-send on the next available delivery date, or
  • a full refund

Refunds are manually transacted by us through our secure payment gateway and will appear on the cardholders statement with a reference to the original purchase.  The total amount refundable is for the purchase price of the products only and does not refer to any courier charges or relay transactions. 

Special offers

At our discretion, from time to time, we may offer products at discounted prices. These offers are valid from the time that we introduce them to the end date of the offer and they cannot be used for purchases before the offer introduction date or after the offer end date.
In the event that a customer has made a purchase and the price of the purchased product subsequently falls or is discounted owing to a special offer, the price of the product at the time of purchase shall 'prevail'. We are unable to offer special offer discounts for purchases that have already been made.

As our special offers are contingent on the availability of products, we may change the terms of special offers, or withdraw them altogether, at any time, and without prior notice.

We also reserve the right to offer different personalised special offers and promotions and it will therefore only be possible for the customer in receipt of the special offer to redeem the discount.
