I'm in Pakistan, but not in Karachi -- how can I place an order?

Once the order is placed, an email is generated with account details. Make a payment to the account and send us a screenshot or receipt. We'll update your payment, process your order, and ship it over. We can also generate a credit card payment link if your order is customized and not placed via the website directly.

If you'd like someone to receive on your behalf, and they'll pay on your behalf as well -- you can select cash on delivery (for Karachi only)

I'm abroad, and want to order, how can I pay?
We accept payment via PayPal but will need to add 12% of the total amount to your order bill (this helps us cover the deductions on conversion rates to receive the amount in Pakistan). We can also share a credit card payment link for your order invoice which can ease payments online.

I purchased an item in store, can you exchange it for me directly?
Sorry, we cannot honor this as we have already been billed / charged by the stockist for this transaction.

Why aren't there discounts / sales / offers at stockists. Your prices are different online!
Firefly pays commissions / rent to stockists for the display / handling / and sales of our products. This is a resource to facilitate the convenience of our customers who need items quickly, or urgently. We sadly, cannot afford to offer sale pricing or discounts on items sold in stores. 

Your product is expensive compared to xyz brand.
We're a Pakistan based gifting brand with our own studio set up. We have overheads, invest in packaging, pay our team members, and need to pay for inventory, production, equipment, and utilities. While products in the market may be similar, or even made the same way, the finishing, quality of materials we use, and overall gifting experience with Firefly will always be different. Products may look similar but unfortunately, are NOT the same. We in fact oversee every step of the production process, from procuring the raw materials, purchasing trimmings, or sourcing fabrics and inks for the products we create. We also ensure the end product reaches you defect free, even if that means a few failed attempts / wastage in making it happen. We avoid mixatives in our inks, and also purchase some of the higher quality materials for other items we produce. Compared to the rise in dollar, our products cost relatively less and while we bill in rupees, majority of our production costs are connected to international exchange rates. This includes something as basic as the paper we use for printing!
