FAS allows you to send and receive wire orders "Florist Direct"
through the Independent Florists' Association (IFA). When you
send an order through a traditional wire service, 20% of the order
amount is kept by the sending shop, 7% goes to the wire service,
and 73% is paid to the filling shop. The filling shop must then
wait 30-45 days to receive payment for orders filled through a
traditional wire service. With Florist Direct orders sent through
IFA, the sending shop still earns its 20% and relay fee, but the
filling shop earns 80%--$3-$6 more for each order filled--and the
filling shop is paid immediately with a credit card for all orders
filled. Click here for more information about
