Notice--PayPal payment method will be suspended for most e-cigarettes items
Dear valued customers,

We're very sorry to inform you that PayPal officially revised the Acceptable Use Policy regarding e-cigarette related products, transactions involving most of the e-cigarette products will be prohibited from now. Other payment methods such as cryptocurrencies and gift cards are not affected. Non-e-cigarette products on our website are also not affected.

Paypal claims that e-cigarettes belong to activities requiring approval. But the fact is there is no way we can get the pre-approval after confirming with Paypal.

We are currently connecting with new credit card payment processors and will try to get them online asap.

At the same time, we will keep communicating with PayPal at all times. Once there are any further updates of this policy, we will make an announcement.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this change may cause, and thank you all for your understanding and continued support.

Please do not hesitate to contact our customer service if you have any questions, as we will be very happy to assist you with anything you need.

Best regards,

FastTech Team

The solutions:
1. by a non ecig article with the same value of your ecig articles and shipping fee using paypal, cancel your order and ask for a gift certificate and use the gc to buy your ecig articles. Best to buy something that is not in stock and like i said cancel it afterwards.
Or
2. buy a gc using paypal.
We can't agree on everything.

Buy a gift certificate October 19,2020 - October 29,2020 (UTC-6) and get an extra 5% free.

Then spend it October 31,2020 - November 1,2020 (UTC-6) using the coupon code CANDY2020 that was announced on October 20,2020 for a Site-wide 10% off.

Is this effective immediately?

You say most. What items will still be available to purchase via PayPal that have to do with vaping? Premade coils? Cotton?

Thanks for letting us know, it was just a matter of time.

Is there a way to search fasttech products for an exact price or do you just have to browse around and hope you get lucky?

I just ordered a mod using paypal, so I am guessing that this new policy is not in effect yet...

Just buy a goddamn GC and stop wasting people's time and resources.
Why do you need to go on the hard way when you got the easy way?

Because some people don't want to have a GC balance. Not everyone who buys here buys frequently.
