To optimize the purchase of flowers by the price criterion, many of our customers place their orders with stop-prices for certain positions.
Our system allows the customer to set up a price limit - stop-price for each position of the order, while the stop-price is indicated for flowers delivered to the destination point (the price in the final invoice for the customer).
Please note that stop-price limit may result in nonperformance of an order in the following cases:
- If the customer specified in his preferences card just expensive, "branded" farms, which seldom or never reduce their price-lists
- Provided the customer sets up stop-prices at the feverish demand for flowers when demand exceeds supply, while the other customers do not limit the price, but ask to execute the order as best as possible in quantity
- If the customer sets up stop-prices for short supplied positions, for example, for the varieties of roses listed below:
Mondial 80 + (80 cm and more)
Cherry O! 70/80+
Polar Star 70+
High & Mora 80+

If combination variety + length is short supplied, it does not mean that we can not purchase it, but it means that the demand for this variety, starting from a given length and higher, significantly exceeds the supply of farms and therefore there are certain issues on the purchase of these flowers. First of all, we will perform this variety for the large orders, as well as for the regular customers who place their orders with Daoflowers regularly during a long period of time.
Usually, short supplied positions are new varieties of roses in high lengths.
When short supplies prevail in the customer’s order, we are not able to purchase just sharply demanded positions without regular ones. Most likely we will be forced to classify this order as the one that we may not accept.
The most effective way is to set up stop prices for regular varieties available in good supply, that are easy to purchase at a wide range of reliable farms.
However, our customers who work with us for a long period of time are aware that we always tend to buy down, at lower prices than indicated in the farms’ price lists.
Certainly, to buy these flowers for the Customer at low prices is in his best interest and is the key to his market competitiveness.
