An Uber for flower delivery app will help you to expand your business by reaching out to your potential customers. There are certain features that every great Mobile App must have in. The level of functionality of the application helps determine if the user experience of the mobile app can be optimal.
Think for yourself. What would you prefer when it comes to gifting a loved one flowers? Stopping by different florists till you find the flowers you were looking for definitely doesn’t sound appealing. Wouldn’t it be great to get exactly what you need at a single platform?
The whole world is going mobile. Florists have started using this growing technology to their favor by increasing their sales as well as customer loyalty.

They can either opt for instant delivery or schedule it for a later date and time. Such features are driving a large audience to these apps.
According to a recent report by IBIS, the Flower delivery industry has generated around $800 million in revenue in the last five years, and it is expected to increase.

Before you move forward with the mobile app development process, you must have a clear idea of the essential features to have in your flower delivery app. We’ll go through the unique must-have features of an on-demand flower delivery app that will give you an edge over your competitors.
Let’s get started!
Enabling users to add a personal note with the flowers ordered can be an interesting feature to consider while developing an on-demand flower delivery app. Users will have an option to write a note while placing an order and you can get it printed to deliver with the flowers or bouquet. This feature adds a personal touch and helps users to convey their message.
Offer your users delivery options to get their order delivered immediately or schedule it for later. They can select the date and time for the scheduled flower delivery and receive it exactly when they want to.
Another essential feature is to enable your customers to track their orders in real-time. They must be updated at each step from ‘Preparing the order’ to ‘Order delivered’. By using the geolocation enabled florist app, customers will be able to view the delivery executive’s movements when he is on his way to deliver their order.
Allow your users to pay using various payment methods such as Credit/Debit cards, net banking and popular e-wallets like Apple Pay, Google Pay, and PayPal.
Keep showering your customers with regular discounts and personalized offers to make them come running back to you. Earn customer loyalty to retain your existing customers as well as attract other potential customers.
People love to share small events on social media. This feature allows your users to share the flower delivery directly on their social media accounts. This also creates free publicity for your Flower delivery services.
To develop an extraordinary app, it is necessary to find the right flower delivery app development company. Your project managers must understand your needs and have adequate skills to fulfill them. You must ensure the developing company offers both, iOS and Android apps within your budget.
