Originally a clearing house used to help florists send and receive orders between each other so shops could transact business anywhere coast to coast. Since the internet became available for retailers FTD.com began marketing and gathering orders from consumers and sending them back to retail florists less commissions and fees charged. Florists pay dues to be in the network and transaction fees per order.
FTD is NOT known to be deceptive is in many cases florists feel they are the competition. Local Flower Shop.com allows retail consumers to save by cutting out this middleman and shopping direct with the florist who is going to be creating your request and delivering the item
