Dear valued customers,

The policy will not affect our website to sell E-cigs products, please don't worry, we will ship your orders normally.

As heimchen said:"I believe this is only meant for domestic online-sales to prevent chinese kids from ordering. Export and overseas sales are not the aim." The purpose is to prevent chinese kids from ordering E-cigs products, only domestic online shops are affected.

Thank you for your concerns.

Well another news agency has picked up the story.

All websites and apps selling e-cigarettes are to be shut down and all online marketing campaigns halted, according to a statement by the country’s state tobacco monopoly


No comment apart from Big Tobacco strikes again.

No idea, Bloomberg is anti vaping so maybe that has something to do with it.

Disclosure: Michael R Bloomberg, the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg News parent Bloomberg LP, has campaigned and given money in support of a ban on flavoured e-cigarettes and tobacco.


Take everything with a pinch of salt, till proven otherwise.;)

ETA:
Would say this sums it up:

Some public health officials also caution that the vaping health scare could benefit cigarette sales.

From an article this past September.

Could be just Juul related products


Financial Times:Asian countries move to ban e-cigarettes as global backlash grows

Action comes in the same week that China, the largest producer and consumer of tobacco, halted online sales of vaping products made by US vape maker Juul Labs.



On the link that the OP shows, it speaks of Juul again

Products from Juul were pulled off Chinese e-commerce sites Tmall and JD.com in September without an explanation, days after debuting in the world’s largest tobacco market, prompting speculation that official action may be on the way.

the "Statement" was published by
1. China Tobacco (the state owned company)
2. State Administration for Market Regulation
in the aim to protect children from vaping products
also the "Statement" is asking local authorities to tightening regulation on e-cig sales (especially online sale of e-cig products), meanwhile it "advises" online e-cig shops to close down their platform and blablabla..B&M shops? the "Market Regulation Department" of China Tobacco (the company) have the right to close-down B&M e-cig shops, so that's that...


I reckon this will hit the domestic market hard, wouldn't think it will impact the export part of the industry tho. Given that China Tobacco is THE MOST profitable state-owned company in China, it will not sit and watch e-cig companies taking away its market. Also considering that the majority of China Tobacco's products are being sold only in domestic market so there is no need for them to ban the exporting of e-cigs.

You better ask Anniepan direct.
Change the title in your post:

(i think, heimchen controlls the biggest german vaping website.)
