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.

The new process is that the seller adds on the tax at point of purchase so your own customs and post office no longer need to get involved. Also there is no more "gift" to make items tax free. However Fasttech so far have not added any tax making them the cheaper option compared with some other Chinese sites however this may change when the EU implements the changes. We will wait and see.

Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow.

Did I get it right, do thely ship from Poland? So they have a warehouse in the EU? Because looks like a good site to order from. May try it in the future... But you know hard to brake old habbits and I use the same site since I started vaping.

Do a test order. See what you think. Always good to have more options in the vaping world.

Vaper buys pod system, asks for a 510 adapter. LOL for days

I purchased three times from Hiliq...
Of course all this is in the past....I don't know how it is today concerning the bans that are being put in place, but, as far as service and quality, they're trustworthy and if there is a problem, they are quick to respond and help. Shipping is either DHL or FEDEX but it's bloody fast. Three days was the fastest.....the slowest was when customs decided to squeeze me out of some money. Nothing is labelled as nicotine. On the bill it mentions propylene glycol. It's well packaged. Since I bought a fair quantity at 200mg/ml.....I'm good for a few years. But all this talk has me worried a little and I might just place a new order just to see if it passes customs. I tried their flavors once....and it was terrible. To be fair, it was one flavor, coffee.

This might get bumped by FT....

had this message in my mail from HiLiq

HILIQ is currently facing a major stock issue as raw materials in China are in short supply due to the recent government control. A pending regulation guideline is on the way for the Chinese market which is currently being discussed locally. The demand domestically has surged up making many big POD device companies buying all possible nicotine supplies available in China.


In connection with this, please be advised that beginning June 1, 2021, HILIQ will increase the prices of E-liquid nicotine and Hi-salts, Nicotine Salt Base and Unflavoured Nicotine Base. The increase is about 40% to 60% depending on the type of Nicotine products you will order through our websites (EN, AU, EU, JP). We are also removing 1L sizes to help us continually supply the rest of our end-users, globally.

While we increase the prices of our core commodities, we remain to be one of the most trusted suppliers of Nicotine in the world. Non-nicotine products such as flavor concentrates, PG/VG, electronic cigarettes, empty bottles, and other vaping accessories will be unchanged.

We also wanted to take this opportunity to let you know about the changes in the labels we are currently implementing as they are currently isensitive in many borders. Rest assured all products sent are according to your orders on our website. We are also working harder to have more payment methods to join us. Please be patient while we await our application with VISA and other payment solutions in your country.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may brought you moving forward. We sincerely hope that during this difficult time, we continue to have you on our side as we work our best to reproduce and replenish as soon as possible. Thank you for your usual support and understanding.
