Customers select their zone from a provided USDA Plant Hardiness Zone map as a first step in buying fruit trees from a catalog. Customers then write the quantities, item descriptions and prices of the fruit trees they wish to buy on the order form provided in the catalog.
Some fruit tree companies have e-commerce websites for customers to order fruit trees from their catalog online. Ordering fruit trees online is similar to ordering from a paper catalog. Customers click on the fruit trees they want to add them to a shopping cart. Customers must pay for their fruit trees before they are shipped. The cost of shipping fruit trees varies by company and customer location.
