What Aluminum?

Maybe it's in coils?

Aluminium saucepans and cooking utensils have been sold for years... But of course children won't buy them.

No, it was intentional and by people who have no investment in the subject of the thread. That said, good job in moving back on topic.

I'm out.....have some fun. Eh?

No aluminum, although that was a thing here once, best we forget about it. It was an "in" joke, I suppose.

And a bad one. I'm sorry.

I know words...I have the best words.

Here's an example of a recent order I saw posted elsewhere showing "the elephant in the room" on how the USA shipping ban / PACT Act will affect many folks wallet when ordering online in the States:

Cart Subtotal: $19.95

Shipping (Adult Signature): $15.40


MA State Vapor Tax: $14.96
MA State Tax: $3.14

Total Tax: $18.10


Order Total: $53.45

OUTRAGEOUS for purchasing $19.95 USD in vape-goods! (Some States and localities will be even higher)

I just attempted to place an order at the 3 place, and was only presented with the single option of paying with a CC. The card I use for overseas online purchases was declined, and my order cancelled by the 3 place. I opened a ticket to see if CS could throw an order / alternate payment my way, and was told that their PP account is ENTIRELY shut-down, and suggested I use another CC. I will not play CC roulette with my cards for sketchy international purchases, and will stick to the one designated for that purpose.... Looks like I won't be purchasing from there until they sort things out.. I also cannot make purchases at all from two other Chinese online stores I've dealt with for years..



Same thing happened to me with 2 different cards. 1 Visa, 1 Master.

Their agent (bank) is trying to request money from your bank. Your bank is rejecting the transaction because your bank thinks it's an unauthorized attempt on your account.



No, you're wrong. I experienced the same issue. I was in contact with my bank while I tried to make the payment. Other than a wrong PIN on one attempt, Nothing showed up on my bank's end.

This is stupid. Begging businesses to take our cash. Like repeatedly begging... I was actually feeling embarrassed on my 11th back and forth with the thrreeefv CS guy, like I was being unreasonable!

I will not attempt to guess how hard or easy it would be for the China based e-cig stores to arrange some legit payment partners but they should have seen it coming. They had time.

It is very confusing.. In the last two months.., id say, half my orders were cancelled with 3f and half weren't.. Bottom line, you have to contact them with Western Union approach if your cards don't work but as they are becoming more diverse with the products they sell (like FT does) so, Idk, it should start getting easier..
