7. Substitution Policy
Flowers And Gifts Davao will always attempt to fulfill an order as closely as possible. The product images of our flower arrangements are for illustration purposes only. However if the container, flowers or other items that comprise the order are unavailable, the order will be substituted with content equal to the original value of the order.
In single-variety arrangements the variety will take precedence over color. For instance, if an order is for yellow daisies, they will substitute another color of daisies, not another yellow flower. White roses and cream roses may be substituted for each other as well as peach roses and pink roses. Purple and pink orchids may need to be substituted for white orchids and visa versa.
Substitutions within a basket may be made with items of greater or equal value if necessary to guarantee freshness and timely delivery.
8. Quality Policy
Flower arrangements are unique and handmade, so no two are ever identical. Every effort is made to match orders as closely as possible to the product photos and descriptions. While minor variations are sometimes necessary, the concept and value of the item ordered is always guaranteed.

21. Return Policy
Flowers And Gifts Davao strives to provide the best customer service available. It is our belief that as a real flower shop, we understand and appreciate the concerns of Internet shoppers regarding the security and proper fulfillment of their orders. There is a slightly different returns policy for our fresh flower stocks, as they are perishable goods. We have established this return/refund policy to provide our customers with a complete understanding of how replacement orders or refunds are processed.
a. If an order is filled and delivered to the recipient and there is a question of the quality of the arrangement, the recipient should contact Flowers And Gifts Davao. If the flowers have been properly cared for and their is clearly a problem with the quality a replacement will be sent. Please notify us as soon as possible.
b. No replacements will be made for any order should the recipient or sender not notify Flowers And Gifts Davao within 24 hours of the original delivery date. You or the recipient must also return the flowers in their original wrapping and containers.
c. If you are not satisfied with a non-perishable gift item for any reason, you may return it to our shop for an exchange of equal value or a refund within 7 days of the purchase date on your receipt provided the items are returned unopened with the original packing materials and documentation.
d. Replacements are catered after 2 days of the original delivery date.
e. Please note that we can refund shipping/delivery fees only if the return is a result of our error. Otherwise, you will receive a replacement of the specialty gift item, but the original and return shipping fee will not be refunded.
f. Flowers And Gifts Davao is not liable for customer errors that result in the over-ordering of a product. During the checkout process the customer is provided with a total of the order PRIOR to the order being submitted. The customer is given the option to remove items or reduce the quantity ordered. Flowers And Gifts Davao makes every effort to review orders where multiple quantities of a same item are ordered but we do not guarantee, nor are we liable, for any order sent out exactly as the customer ordered. If a customer orders more than one of any single item but meant to send a lesser quantity and the ordered amount is sent to the recipient, no refund can be offered since what was ordered is what will be delivered.
g. Flowers And Gifts Davao reserves the right to reject any order provided to us that we deem questionable or possibly fraudulent. When Flowers And Gifts Davao receives an order, we review the entire order and periodically compare the information provided to us with the bank of the person placing the order. If we determine that fraudulent information is provided we will send an email or phone call to the sender to inform them of the situation to determine if the information was provided in error.
