delivery charge to florists?
Hi--I've lurked on this site for a couple years and have learned so much. Thanks to everyone for taking your time to share.
I've got a question that I couldn't find in old posts. Last year I sold quite a few flowers to the local florist and since it was just a few miles to town and I would have been going anyway, mileage wasn't a concern. This year, however, I'd like to expand and try to sell to more florists. Because this is a very rural area, most towns have only one florist and it would be a 50-80 mile round trip. My question is, does anyone who sells to florists charge a delivery fee or have a minimum order requirement? Do you think this would be out of line? Should I just figure mileage into the cost per stem? (Guess that's several questions) Thanks for any advice!
