4 were perfect but they sure screwed up Valentines day 2013. (in 9 reviews)
▼ Sort by: recent
I just want to inform everyone here that the owner of this website ( www.pickupflowers.com) is running a well planned and organised scam being carrying out from india. The owner also runs a similar website as (www.giftsnideas.com) which is equally receiving the same kind of reviews and complaints on all the legitimate websites like www.sitejabber.com etc. in short, all i can concluded after made a bit investigation can be summarised as follows:
1. These guys are real bastards who has booked these domains ( www.pickupflowers.com and www.giftsnideas.com) only and only in order to rob the money from innocent customers. They knew the fact that being an international cross border transaction, its highly unlikely for some law enforcement agencies to get hold of them.
2. I am also surprised upon the fact that how these guys were able to obtain a payment gateway from a company with whom they are processing payments? on receiving so many chargebacks complaints across the globe, these mother$#*!ers ( i am really sorry for the foul language used here but i am not left with any other adjective) must be shut down by now but they are still in business? This is arising a question mark on merchant account provider company as well and better business bureau and federal trade commission must take some action against these crooks by now.
3. There contact us section is nothing but a dummy.The numbers they have taken which are suppose to call as " customer care numbers " are those numbers which can be obtained from any call forwarding company like www.tollfreeforwarding.com so that when someone calls, the call would be routed directly to india.There address given on the website is also a mail forwarding address in DELAWARE and CALIFORNIA which does not have a physical presence.if you will monitor both the websites ( www.pickupflowers.com and www.giftsnideas.com) thoroughly, you will find a lot of grammatical errors over there which clearly indicates that they have obtained these websites only for fraudlent purpose.
4. There real physical location is hidden but its definitely in northern india.This is sure that they operates from india only and most likely in northern part ( Dehradun , New delhi , haridwar,roorkee , agra , kanpur,lucknow,varanasi,gurgaon ) and they do not have any international vendor as well whom they can ask to get the orders delivered. i am from india and i also filed a police complaint in my region today which is being processed and suppose to passed to the cyber crime cell of C.B.I ( central bureau of investigation, C.G.O complex, New Delhi ).
5. While placing an order please please please always remember to get in touch with the customer care department of that website so that you can get a glimpse of there where abouts, always try to note that at the time of providing the credit card details, the url of the website starts with Https or not and always try to use the option like paypal for payment rather to use yours credit card.
What a waste of time. I won't bore you with the details suffice to say that the website checkout process can take half your day, especially if you need to update an expired card details. Don't expect any response from their customer services email address. Their live chat is not really live at all. .some computer says hello..then silence thereafter. Stay away.
After reading the reviews i was a bit apprehensive about ordering on this website but i was in a bit of a tight situation so i just took a chance. Im from the US and i had my flowers delivered in China. Keep in mind that this is an international flower delivery organization so of course there will be a few hiccups in the process. My flowers were delivered a day late but it was fine, the customer service was hard to communicate with because of their accents but they were very polite and made sure all of my worries were tended to. The product also looked better than they looked online. Also i feel like only people who have had negative experiences are the first to write reviews so just try to consider that.
Hello, I ordered flowers for my friend in hospital who was in a terrible accident, almost died. It was in Berlin. A few days later I learnt no flowers were delivered. I wrote to them. They replied saying they were delivered. It's been nearly a month and they are still 'trying' to get the proof of delivery. They said the do not do ANY refunds. Stay away from this company, is my advice. tom
I called in if they deliver to this address and they said yes ... so I ordered flowers worth $300 and after 2 days told me that their florist cannot deliver to that area. They offered me a gift card with the same values, saying there's a problem processing a refund and I said I want refund coz it's useless to have gift cards since you cannot deliver it . They msg me back that asking my bank account so they can send the refund.... hmmn .... it's sound suspicious why they need my bank account since they can get the money from my card so as well they should give it back to my card. scam..
Hi Everyone, I'm Mallika Abeykoon from Sri Lanka
I used pickupflowers.com to send some flowers to Ontario Canada for the birth of our grate grand niece. Placed the order on 13th July for flowers and my credit card was debited for US$ 89.50 then and there. Up to now flowers were not delivered even though the delivery date given was 13.07.2015.I have exchanged more than 25 mails in this regard and still i have not got my refund. Do not get caught to this international thieves. They are robbing people without shame. Every time it is a new story. If I attached all the mails it is very interesting to see their ever changing excuses and how they try to send the customers around the mulberry bush!!! I'm going to report to to the relevant authorities. I had to block my credit card as I'm not trusting them with my card details. Please do not use them. the good people read this review kindly place on your face book about this scammers. So we can save others from getting caught to this scammer. I do not like to rate them as one star even. There should be negative marks to rate them. I have attached some of the mails sent up and down.
Tip for consumers: Attn. Sarah/ Jessica/ stephan
As I said no point of your apologies, if you’ll have process the refund give me the details. No bank in the world will take 4-5 days to do a refund. We are in 21st Century and not in stone age. I’m sure you international scammers know about “On Line Transfers” “Swift Transfers “ Etc. Do not try to fool us we are not bloody idiots that can take for a ride. Earlier you’ll said details will be given on Monday, then within 3-4 working days and now 4.5 days. What is
I wished I had read all the reviews prior to ordering an arrangement for my sister in Hong Kong from Canada. As with everyone here stated, no delivery with an excuse email. I emailed the company on LinkedIn hoping I can reach the senior people quicker. Interesting enough, when it sent, 3 individuals names came up (Sheikdawood Dawood, Subas Rath and Kasala Yashwanth - all India) No professional profiles.I think these guys are running a fronted company from India. I suggest that everyone send an email through LinkedIn to these people with a link to the website here and let them know that they will be reported to the authorities.
Tip for consumers: DO NOT USE THIS STEAsk Kat about PickupFlowers
I used this service twice and it failed me TWICE!!!
I placed my order in advance for a week and the requested item keep changing, their reason its not available, they suggested alternative and i agreed after a day they said its not available again and replaced by cheap item. Delivery date come it didnt arrive, they said it will take two more $#*!ing days. Its useless to placed your order in advance, your item will not be delivered in exact days and not same item that you will expect
UNTIL NOW THE REQUESTED ITEM NOT YET DELIVERED.
DONT EVER DEAL WITH THIS PICKUP$#*!FLOWERS.
DISAPPOINTED CUSTOMER FROM UAE.

They didint contact me though,No i had to live chat them the day this was after my mum birthday to see what happen.NO flowers,money and we missed giving my mum a nice surprise on holiday.
Please please please do not use!!! They are criminal.... I was lied to about delivery same day... And I was told no carnations, only roses, which I agreed.... Roses???? Omg they were dreadful and dead looking!!! I paid a lot of money ... PLS DO NOT USE!!!!!!
It appears to be a scam. I was charged and they never delivered. When I queried them after the recipient never received the flowers they apologized and offered a new product ASAP for an additional charge which never arrived either. No refund has ever been received even though they claim it has been sorted.
Fraud Alert - this website, www.pickupflowers.com, is a bona fide internet scam. They have a rating of "F" from the Better Business Bureau, with numerous unresolved customer complaints and claims. I ordered from this website and fell into the same trap as the 100+ other reviewers on this website. I did not see this reviews on this site before I placed my order. Unfortunately, they are true and all describe their standard business practice. I am in the process of filing a fraud report with the FBI, as one other poster suggested. Basically, once they have your money, your product will not get delivered; or, it will be delivered weeks late with a poor quality and poor value substitution, with claims by the company that it is acceptable by their policy. The company has numerous "customer call numbers" for different regions of the world, and all customers experience the same thing; a service representative never picks up, and you are sent to voice mail; they never return your message. In addition, I sent them numerous emails trying to resolve them not delivering the flowers I ordered; they responded the first time with a "we will look into this and respond via email within 24 hours." They never responded to that email, or the numerous subsequent emails I sent asking to resolve my issue. Finally, I attempted to use their on line "chat customer service." The chat room service agent assured me that the issue would be resolved immediately, which obviously never happened. The website, www.pickupflowers.com, has a "service agent" calling herself "Betty" who monitors these consumer complaint boards, posting fake company responses assuring sympathy and that the matter will be resolved with 100% customer satisfaction; again, it will never happen. Obviously, the people fronting this business are making a profit run until the FBI or other agencies can gather enough evidence to shut them down. Avoid and warn your friends and family; the 100+ customers on this site sharing the same consumer victim story may never be compensated for their loss; however, it may prevent others from their consumer fraud or eventually shut this site down.
I ordered get well flowers, a teddy bear and chocolate for my cousin who lives in the Netherlands. Paid lots of money for it BUT it was never delivered. I tried contacted them and only received several emails saying they will get back to me with an explanation but they never did. Later they partially refunded me only for the flowers. I did not get an email or a call with a reason or explanation. Horrible experience! I spent hours trying to reach them and get these resolve. Lost time and my cousin who is recovering from surgery never got her flowers which she was expecting. I am so upset! =/
Everyone please DO NOT...DO NOT order from pickupflowers.com.
I ordered a beautiful arrangement for my mom, based on the picture, on Mother's Day that was offered with a $10 coupon to get free delivery. They didn't have same day delivery available, so I chose next day. The flowers on the picture looked beautiful, but what my mom got didn't look nearly as pretty and on top of that, they didn't look fresh, neither the flowers were delivered on the day agreed. The only pretty thing on the arrangement was the pink bow they used, that's it. I had to contact PickupFlowers.com twice, they asked me to send pictures of the product delivered. So I did because I was confident about my claim; I had nothing to hide. Within three hours they replied to my email address that nothing was wrong with the arrangement, that they seemed to be quality flowers based on the image, that the ones I saw in the picture were an upgraded version, and that they were delivered accordingly. All a bunch of lies. They refused to stand behind their deceiving 'Satisfaction Guaranteed' advertisement.
1. That was the only option available to purchase. It didn't give any options of standard-better-deluxe. NO. They advertised the arrangement as if it was the one to be purchased for the price offered. Period.
2. They don't have a direct phone number. The only way to contact them is through 'Live Assistance'. No email, no mailing address, no phone number.
3. They don't honor what they promote on their website about their "excellent customer service." They do not refund OR replace if you aren't satisfied, the flowers they deliver are not premium quality flowers, and they seem to fail delivering on time, based on my experience and other customers' reviews. They might, however, offer you a 10% discount on your NEXT purchase... Awful!!
Bottomline, avoid this company. There are many others that although they may charge a little more, they do stand behind the quality of their products and service. PickupFlowers.com is a scam.
i ordered flowers for mothers day and it was not delivered.mothers day is long gone. Customer care emailed saying they will get back to me. and that they will get back regarding the delivery details.and that they will update me at the earliest with complete details. But that was it.Guys plz never order flowers from pickupflowers.com and spoil ur day.
I ordered a dozen roses for my mother for mother's day, they said it would be delivered on may 12, 2015, but my mum didn't receive anything. No delivery. At first they kept on answering my emails but now they stopped, i asked for a refund but they didn't listen. Wtf! Can someone shut that effin' site down?! It's a scam!
I have ordered flowers on their website for Mother's day, nothing delivered. After I complained to them, they made an excuse that the address is incorrect. Funny! I have been using the same address with USPS, Fedex and UPS without any issue, now they told me this is wrong!? Okay, if their local florist cannot read English address, at least they should make a phone call to the recipient (two phone numbers provided on the order) to get the address, but NONE!!
They are the worst company with worst customer service. I regret not checking the review first before placing my order. Please don't make yourself regret like me.
I ordered the flower bouquet from the company which had lilies, hydrangeas, kalas and roses. Not to mention that they delivered the flowers late in the evening instead of daytime, the bouquet that the birthday person got had only 5! Buds of lilies! Tried to contact the customer service for a couple of days because according to their site "you can exchange the flowers if you are not satisfied" they had the gut to tell that the flowers they delirvered are the flowers I paid for! Stay away from that company and save your time and money! The worst customer service I have to deal with!
My mum ordered a cake for me. The cake she ordered was not available, so Pickupflowers offered a substitution. Mum agreed, but she thought that the substitution will be of the same value as the original cake, this also states the substitution policy on the pickupflowers website. However mum paid for a cake worth 80 Euros, and I have received a cake worth 22 Euros. I tried to contact the customer service, I provided screenshots, differences in prices, no results. Skype contact does not work. It is just horrible. I am trying to explain that 80 is not equal 22 and people at customer service just do not get it.
All the time I get the same answer: "We regret to inform you that we have checked with local agent and found that the order was delivered with the best availability and value paid with the best arrangement and round cake". No further explanation. I asked them to provide me the price of the cake I have received. Further I asked them to give me a contact of a manager, no answer. I am very dissapointed!
I have been two time order but I have been cancelled ,no reply ,you will mad but no body reply after log time just you just have received reply with sorry,very very bad services they can't deliver on time they can't reply ,
What i paid for and ordered was not at all what they delivered ( see pics) and when I complained this is how they answer:
I have to complain. What I paid for and what was delivered are two different things. I have attached a picture of the disappointing effort made by your florist.
This is not what I paid for and expected for my wife.
Very disappointed, please advise
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.
We have checked the pictures and the delivered product is fresh and fine in quality.Also the products are delivered as per the substitution policy stated on our website and as per which the pictures displayed on our website are upgraded versions and the products upon delivery might not be same but will be similar.
The order was delivered accordingly and there seemed no issue with it.
What a rip off......I pay a decent price and you issue my wife something worth half the value......you can dress it up as you like with your "substitution policy" terminology but you have misrepresented your offer.
I will write up a review stating the same.
Tip for consumers: They wont offer a refund or even a partial it seems so dont use them....Ask Andrew about PickupFlowers
I inquired about my order via chat since no one answers at the 415 number. The agent 'Sarah brown' first told me it was delivered when in fact it wasn't. She said 'it looks like it was delivered but I cant verify' wth?! So I called my credit card company and I am making a claim for my undelivered flowers. This is titalky a scam.
Never use this site to deliver things to your loved ones. Their service is very poor, never deliver on time and hidden charges. Recipient never get the same thing which you order. I ordered a flower bouquet to deliver in Sri Lanka, it was not delivered on time. After 3 days when I asked for refund they were able to deliver some cheap flowers, not only that they charged from the recipient shamelessly .
Let me preface this testimony by saying after all this grief, I filed a complaint with the BBB only to find Pickupflowers has many previous complaints and the lowest rating: F. As in Fail.
I ordered some roses and lilies to be delivered to my sister in law for her 30th birthday. The cost: 52 Euros. They never arrived. So I spent the next 4 days trying to get a refund. PUF apparently has a "24/6 customer service phone numbers" I tried both the numbers in the USA and in the UK. No one is ever available. Either you get an answering machine asking to leave your contact information, in which case they never call you back, or the line is picked up but no one speaks. The only communication available is their "live chat" or email. After speaking to 4 live chat people, (oh, and be prepared to wait and wait) and numerous emails, PUF finally promised a refund.
Then, a week and a half after this, I rec'd an email saying my flowers had been delivered. My sister-in-law sent me a picture of the flowers and they were a handful of daisies. Again, with much difficulty, I tried to contact PUF to discuss why my credit card had been charge without my authorization and after I was promised a refund. They refused to discuss this question. I also queried about sending daisies in place of lilies and roses. They told me that daisies are an acceptable replacement for lilies and roses in their "substitution policy". And, I was eventually charged 59 Euros.
So, to sum up, 5 days late, unauthorized charge, daisies, 59 Euros. I suppose I should be grateful their was not more hidden costs considering the business ethics of this company.
Don't use this terrible company to send flowers. Their advertising is false, their customer service is pitiful and they are completely without ethics.
Just a little update: PUF has to date (April 22/15)not responded to the complaint I submitted to the BBB. Also, I replied to "Betty' - you know, the 'bla bla we're sorry, call me, email me and we will straighten things out' response to this review. Betty doesn't return calls or emails so save yourself the trouble of contacting. Still the worst flower delivery company out there, and maybe even a little worse for more false portrayal of their customer service!
Tip for consumers: If you have been hosed by PUF, consider making an official complaint to the BBB. Even if it spares one person the terrible experience, and if PUF loses sales, it will be worth it.Ask Sonya about PickupFlowers
I was extremely worried after reading these reviews. I ordered flowers for my mom who was going to be overseas on her birthday.
I was pleasantly surprised when my mom informed me that she received them at the hotel where she was staying. The arrangement looked great. Very close to the picture on the site.
Absolutely disgusting that this website is allowed to still exist. Complete scam. they took my money and didn't deliver anything.
When i tried to contact them they blocked all forms of communication. I called both their offices in the UK and U.S and was just met with background noise and no one speaking. Their skype talk option connected then they just blocked me. Their online live chat option is clearly not a real person and just kept either ignoring my questions or cutting me off. The day after i started receiving ridiculous emails from them that made no sense and were contradicting in the same mail, also clearly generated and not from an actual person. The final one after asking for a refund actually read "Ok we will surely cancel that order for you. We will notify you once the order is delivered"!!!! No doubt this complaint will have the same automated response underneath that all the others have from them. Get these crooks off the net. No stars.
This is the worst online buying experience I ever had! Those people are awful! may be and because of them many relations got troubles! I ordered a flowers Bouquet to be delivered to Germany on 21 march as a birthday gift, but my girl received nothing!!! I was planning to surprise her but these idiots ruined my surprised and caused a problem between us!!! they never pick up the phone calls and I guess they have an automatic reply on live chat! I opened a dispute on paypal but they did not response yet, I am going to escalate to claim soon. IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP NEVER USE THEIR WEBSITE. THEY ARE CROOKS.
I AM WARNING YOU ...DO NOT BUY FROM THEM...i bought flower for my mothers on mothers day for 150 dollars...the flowers was delivered but GUESS WHAT the flowers don't look like the one I ordered online...so completely different with a broken vase...I paid 150 dollars ...but the flowers they sent my mom will probably cost 10 dollars VERY POOR and it looks nothing like the one online even the vase is different ...OMG...I WAS SHOCKED...I been calling them and emailing them for complain and refund...but no one picking my calls or replying to my email....TOTAL SCAM.
I'm a real customer who purchased $30.75 from their website to be delivered to Taiwan for my mom's birthday. Guess what, they eat up my money and never delivered the followers. I have to call my credit card company and cancel this bogus transaction. I have to mention that their customer services is HORRIBLE as well!!! I called them twice to check on status of my order and they answered, "We'll have to check with our international partner", and just left the conversation like that.
SCAM WEBSITE, do not THROW YOUR MONEY AWAY. Try something else. AVOID THEM AT ALL COST.

After my initial post, they replied via this site that I should get in touch with 'Betty' and they'll resolve the issue to my satisfaction. What a load of b.s. I emailed this Betty and so far nothing. I guess they are at least trying to appear through this site and others as if they're actually doing something when in fact they're continuing to ignore their customers and complaints. What scammers.

I ordered flowers to be sent to a friend in UK and they took my money and never delivered. I contacted them and they could not give me a delivery date. The flowers were for Valentines day and I was heartbroken that they did not deliver in time, so told them to just change gift message and send anyway. Well it is now 4 weeks later and they still cannot give me a delivery date. The Worst flower shop ever!!! I have sent flowers all over the world and never had a problem until this site.

This just happened to me too. I order some flower to be send to australia from the U.S. they keep sending me email saying that there is a problem sending the flowers and that it will be send at the earliest convenience. After 2 days later i contacted them and they told me that it was sent to the wrong address. I reply back telling them that i know this is a scam. i didn't bother arguing. i filed a dispute w/my credit card company. DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE TO ORDER YOUR FLOWERS. THIS IS A FAKE COMPANY. They will keep sending you email apologizing for the delay, etc....but it doesn't go anywhere because your relative will never receive the flower.
Tip for consumers: THIS IS A SCAM WEBSITEAsk IiYo about PickupFlowers
Terrible! Place an order on the 9th of Feb. for flowers to be delivered in the Philippines for Feb. 13, 2015. The Flowers were not delivered. Live chat hardly works. I tried several times but failed. No email for customer service, US phone only goes on a recording and no replies on my correspondence. I had to file a dispute with paypal. Live chat on Feb. 24 finally worked and said it was delivered Feb. 16 which was probably Feb. 17, Philippine time because I was informed by the recipients daughter that as of Feb. 16, they have not received any flower delivery yet. So disappointing!
Me and my fiance had the worst Valentine experience with this company. It ruined our day and caused so much sadness. What was promised and advertised was not true. We received a very ugly floral arrangement fit for a funeral service. Satisfaction Guarantee does not work. We just received an explanation after 11 days. Poor customer service and what is worst, they made it look like it is our fault.

I have no idea why these people waste their time! no delivery, no customer service, they don't make a penny and they don't sell anything. The looks of the site seems soooooooooo legit! They use robot in their live chat and also they have absolutely no other types of customer support.
If you ordered flowers for Valentine's day without caring for reading any reviews about this, I strongly suggest you reconsider your relationship!
