In addition to flowers and plants, more and more hardware is becoming available on Floriday. Hardware comprises products complementary to flowers and plants, such as pots, vases, buckets and baskets, as well as decoration. The supply of hardware is established through 333 VBN codes.

We have added hardware alongside flowers and plants as a product category on Floriday and increased its visibility. As a result, the supply can be easily found by buyers in the Explorer. List your hardware supply on Floriday and be part of this growth.


This page explains the following:


What is hardware?

Hardware is sometimes described as 'pots and pans'. This name sells the category short, as it covers a large diverse group of trade items; flower pots, vases, buckets, baskets, decoration, wreaths, lanterns, rope, (animal) figures, glass, etc. With a growing range of hardware products and the new application potential on the platform, we are continuing to innovate for the industry.
