Product availability

All images, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising on our website are for the sole purpose of giving an approximate description of the products.

Order processing

Order processing begins when we receive a confirmed order and full payment. When orders are placed on a weekend or public holiday the order will be processed on the next working day.

All transactions will be processed in South African Rands (ZAR). Queen Bee Florist endeavors to offer you competitive prices on current products; your total order price will include the price of the purchase plus any applicable sales tax and delivery charges (on the day of delivery).

Delivery

Delivery time is dependent on product stock availability.

Orders will be delivered any time between 9 am and 5 pm. Any specific delivery times requested on an order form cannot be guaranteed.

When orders are placed on a weekend or public holiday, the order will be processed on the next working day. Same day deliveries are not guaranteed. Should we have stock available, orders will be dispatched on the same day provided payment is validated/received before 12h00 on the day.

Every effort is made to effect delivery of your order timeously, however, unforeseen circumstances may cause delays. Should we be faced with such an occurrence, Queen Bee Florist will contact you via email and provide a revised delivery schedule.

Our rule of thumb is that if an address cannot be found on a standard GPS then we reserve our rights to make alternate arrangements with the recipient to ensure that the product is delivered to them.

If any of the details you have given us in your delivery address are incorrect, we are not liable for any items which are not received.

You agree that if a recipient is unavailable at the given address, Queen Bee can leave the product with a neighbor / co-worker / leave a calling card / leave a voice message or coordinate with the recipient to re-attempt delivery, depending on what is most applicable to the circumstances.

If the delivery person is not allowed to deliver the flowers or gifts directly to the recipient for orders to be delivered to hospitals, hotels and business addresses, the delivery will be left at the reception desk, which will constitute successful delivery.
