@Anniepan FT's Position On USA Shipping Ban
I haven't really seen it addressed here on exactly what FastTech intends to do about the soon upcoming USA shipping ban on all vaping goods. With UPS supposedly joining USPS and FedEx in halting service for these goods in April, there are simply NO other shipping options available for USA vapers....

So, will FT continue shipping vape goods to their USA customers? Will business go on as usual with the additional worry of potential package seizures?

Hello Technomania,

We haven't received the confirmation from our shipping carriers recently, and the shipping to US is in normal condition. So if we have any feedback from our postal/shipping carriers, we will let you know.

Thank you.

I get an ounce of cocaine in the mail monthly.
Dude doesn't label it "COCAINE".
Same concept.

With UPS following FedEx and USPS it seems to be game, set and match for the American anti-vape coalition. I don't want to sound negative but the future of vaping in the States doesn't look promising. Maybe a small independant vape-minded shipping company could be a way out of this.
We can't agree on everything.

I imagine that it wouldn't be difficult for the US Government to change the favorable, subsidized, (cheap) USPS shipping rates that Chinese businesses enjoy.. I'm sure not many would be willing to pay the higher costs which are more in line with the rest of the world..

Know of someone who searches posts for admissions of guilt in the commission of felonies. Sends it to the local law enforcement

Dude doesn't label it "SNITCH REPORT"

I'd like to hear what FT is doing too. There's some reports it's already happening. Shippers include a scannable bar code with product type in their return address. Places like FT are in a better position because they sell more than vape products.

UPS has fallen inline. Below are the dates each carrier will stop delivering "tobacco products" to end users/residential addresses...

FedEx
March 1, 2021

UPS
April 5, 2021

USPS
April 26, 2021

If whole mail ban blows over and somehow gets shot down (but it likely won't) there's another threat on the horizon for USA vapers: the nic base tax. For a 100mg/ml liter of nic base, the tax comes out to just under $2,800.

The house passed the bill that contained the tax, but it was never sent to the Senate so it died in the House on Dec 31, 2020 at midnight. But it will no doubt be introduced again in 2021 and I guarantee you it WILL be passed in the House and Senate.

If you need a few mods and RTAs/RDAs, get them now from Fasttech. If you prefer to buy stateside, then you need to join better forums as this one is useless for help in finding deals since we cannot technically mention other retailers.

But nic should be priority #1, and glass bottles and a freezer.

Why is that not surprising?
