Basically after all my orders that will enter Hungary after the 1st of July I need to pay VAT (around 25%) and handling fee (its cost undisclosed yet).

this.sucks.

The USA vape mail ban has been postponed and it's looking like all we have to do is pretend we are buying drug equipment and we will be OK, so long a sit does not actually contain any nicotine.

Sorry for your VAT problem. In the USA we have some state's that have vapor taxes that are through the roof. Depending on what you are buying, these taxes can increase total purchases prices by 50-150%.

Wtf... That's just nasty. I hope I won't have aditional problems because some RBA has this "it contains nicotine" when it's actually doesn't. What if I vape falvoured VG? Like I did some years ago when i tought i can get rid of my addiction? I don't get that sticker... Oh yeah problem could be here that Nicotine falls under some medicine regulalations... Since vaping got popular here some years ago they made it impossible to buy high nic base for reasonable price. Because some kinda "medicine law"... So now I think most of us orders nic from Slovakia. Because 10ml juice from thee "tobacco store" costs like one pack of cigarettes.

That 25% is not really a big deal.

This is what happened here in Finland couple of years back:

Before the new law that says you must pay cigarette tax for e-liquids, you could buy 100ml of 100mg nicotine base for 14€.
Now you can get max 20mg in 10ml bottles and they are 7€/bottle.

So to get the same amount of nicotine you need to get 50 of those 10ml bottles, so 50 x 7€ = 350€. Basically the price of nicotine went up 2500%.

Tough but fair…

Fortunately I still can order the 100ml 100mg nic base from Slovakia, cheap and it's arives in a week.
But I still think the 25% VAT on other products like RBAs and Mods, is prety big. Think still cheaper than buying from local resellers though... The bigger problem could be the handling fee/package... But we'll see how much will it be. My L200 will definitely arrive after these changes goes live and also have other parcela that FT couldn't ship yet.

For info, the UK introduced this early back in January when we left the EU, because we could and so far Fasttech have not charged me anything however other sites, notably the 40 Thieves, bang it on at checkout. So, it seems it is not compulsory and FT so far don't seem to have brought it in.

HiLiq - many people use them to buy nic base and like it. Ships from China and EU.

Thing is here things a bit different. ft won't charge anything, only if they ship from eu wearhouse that if I know correcty don't have. The post office will stop the packages and they will carge the additional fees. If I understand it correcly the customer should give them the receipt and payment confirmation then pay the VAT or they won't ship the package... Something like this... But as I said i will be a bit smarter after 1st of July when some of my packages arrives... There is still things I don't understand how this system will work.
