Selling Balloon Designs through an Online Store

We have started our online store over the COVID 19 pandemic period because we had to adept our business model to the New Normal. The online store gives you our customer the ability to still celebrate your event at home with a great balloon bouquet design delivered to your doorstep and very little physical contact.

We also believe that selling balloon designs through an online store is a great opportunity for you to send a gift or message to a loved one with one of our amazing balloon bouquet designs.

We want to share with you some of Alfie Balloons Online Store functionality to help you ordering balloon bouquet designs.

The next and final step is to add your payment information. We have two (2) options available:

- Credit or debit card payment through PayFast payment gateway. Use the “Go to Payment” button to make your payment for your order.

- We provide an alternative payment option, Pay on Receipt of Invoice. This means you can place your order and do not pay immediately. This option gives you the opportunity to first discuss your order with us and only pay when you receive the invoice. To use this option, use the “Place Order” button.

We hope that this blog article will assist you with clearing up any questions that you might have with ordering balloon bouquets online.
