Mua cây ở ANVY có yên tâm không?


• Mua cây tại ANVY là mua trực tiếp tại nhà vườn, không qua bất kì khâu trung gian nào khác. Bạn có thể hoàn toàn yên tâm về giá cả.

• Khách được thoải mái khui thùng kiểm tra hàng trước khi nhận. Nếu không hài lòng có thể không nhận hàng.

• ANVY có bảo hành mặt hoa và giao đúng hàng, đúng cây. Nếu có sai sót sẽ được bồi hoàn tiền.

• Trước khi giao hàng mình sẽ chụp hình cây và gửi ảnh cho khách (qua Zalo, Facebook hoặc email). Cam kết hàng giao là hàng trong hình chụp.

• ANVY là vườn lan uy tín với nhiều năm cung cấp số lượng sỉ hoa lan đi các tỉnh thành. Mình hiện tại đang bắt đầu xây dựng kênh bán hàng online, tạo một thương hiệu được khách hàng tin tưởng.




Cùng một sản phẩm nhưng tại sao tôi thấy giá cả thay đổi?


Mỗi loại cây ở vườn lan mình được tuyển chọn và xuất hàng đi liên tục. Mỗi lần xuất lô hàng, mình đều chọn cây to đẹp nhất. Lô hàng sau nếu không to đẹp bằng tất nhiên giá sẽ rẻ hơn.

Cây ở vườn lan lớn nhanh, sau một thời gian, lô hàng sau lại lớn hơn, đẹp hơn và có giá như lô đầu tiên.




Bao lâu thì ANVY có hàng mới?


Vườn lan mình trung bình mỗi tuần đều đặn xuất khoảng 3-4 lô hàng. Càng đến gần Tết thì sẽ càng ít hơn bởi vì… hết hàng.

Vì người ta lấy theo số lượng, nên thường cuối mỗi đợt hàng sẽ có thể còn lại cây lẻ, mình sẽ đăng bán trên website những cây này. Các bạn yên tâm là những cây này mình đều chăm đẹp không thua gì lô bán sỉ nhé.

Mình không có nhiều thời gian dành cho website nên ít đăng bài, cuối năm mình sẽ có nhiều thời gian hơn (thường từ tháng 11 là mình chốt xong hết hàng Tết rồi).
