PROJECTED BEST SELLERS

THINGS TO DO

Review the projected best sellers for Valentine’s Day and project how much product you need to fill incoming orders. For your shop's order estimate, contact your Marketplace representative at 800.767.4000.

Review the ZIP codes where you deliver and same‑day delivery cut‑off times. To view the ZIP codes linked to your shop, go to your FTD Florist Scorecard or call Member Services at 800.788.9000.

Update how many FTD orders you can fill on your Order Capacity Tool in Florist Link. Instead of suspending your system, update your order capacity in the Admin Tool. Find more information.

Train your staff on the importance of sending delivery confirmations in a timely manner. The deadline to send in a delivery confirmation is 7 pm local time.

Familiarize yourself with the substitution guidance for each arrangement.

Develop a backup plan in case you need more delivery capacity. Learn more about how our FTD Delivery Service can assist you.
