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.


Thank you, some other retailers in China have sent out notices. Just hope this doesn't slow my roll with the hamster wheels ya know. ;0)

Always keep your ear to the ground!

I'm subscribed to at least 8 China vape retailers' newsletters and none have mentioned a word about USPS mail bans.

Exactly. Why would they be concerned? they are not in the US, fer chrissakes!

Insert idiotic mantra here.

I have no idea of the legalities, but the contents of our packages were not considered a federal offense and violation of the PACT Act to ship through USPS before.. I can pretty much guarantee that vendors in the USA won't want to deal with the registration, paperwork, potential fines and jail time if a minor violation is committed, etc., and will cease shipping (not to mention there won't be a viable way to even ship to customers).

I used to be able to purchase great quality repro automatic knives with a couple of the larger online Chinese retailers a few years ago, but when I looked for some at the same places recently, they were nowhere to be found.. gone.. I'm hoping that our vape gear doesn't end up the same....


EDIT (speaking of knives): Perhaps FT may approach it like when selling knives to the USA now.. Officially, one from the USA won't be able to place an order for vaping gear directly through the site like presently.. One will need to contact customer service to place the order for them, and FT will send an invoice. When the invoice is paid, FT customer service ships the package, using a route that has the best chance of getting through to the customer..

on a slightly similar topic:
Did anyone in the UK have to pay the new VAT and handling fees for deliveries from China since 1st of January?
Or any other additional charges?

No.

As I mentioned in a thread pertaining to the subject a couple of weeks ago, for the end user, it's pretty much business as usual.

ah. Thanks analogueman. Good to know.
Some suppliers are asking for a HMRC VAT registration number now, so I was wondering...
