Contact support. Tell them the SKU #s you want, what shipping option you want and the cost of that shipping option for those items. They will create an order in your account and send you a link to pay via paypal.



To contact support means waiting a couple of days and the "in stock" items you want to buy, may no longer be "in stock".

I've placed an order elsewhere in China, five minutes ago. I paid with Paypal (they solved the issue in an ingenious way), 24HRS shipping.

I love Fasttech, but not being able to pay efficiently is beyond any loyalty I may have.

Buy non related vape items and pay with PayPal. Then cancel your order and select gc as the refund option.

Add your vape items back in your cart, checkout and pay using the gc.





What I like about this, is that it makes it obvious to PayPal that their policy's are irrelevant. PayPal is going to have a rough year anyway, as DaBay is no longer allowing sellers to use PayPal/ Buyers can pay for items, but before, PayPal managed the transactions, and charged fees for it. PayPals contract was not renewed. Unfortunately, DaBay has gone full Hitler. If you wish to sell there, you must grant them full access to your bank account, enable them to remove funds as they see fit, for fines they might apply etc, or as a "bond" in case you fail to deliver, they insist you allow them permission to run credit checks on you, and if you do not agree, you don't get paid for any items you sell. The funds go into escrow until you comply, or you negotiate their release, for which they charge fines and fees. And of course, you are liable for any banking fees they incur on your account.

And people are going for it.

FTs TOC I didn't manage to work around in posting a list but they're taking out the biggest and best first. There's a list on the vaping undground.
Edit:
My Dabay account was closed almost 2 years ago, won't use them again either.

So a simple message to FastTech... you REALLY need to update your methods of payment, and sooner rather than later, or otherwise I too will be off elsewhere.What did PayPal do? Send message, or just not allow a Fasttech purchase? I wonder if there is not a class action suit here somewhere. What if PayPal did not approve of birth control, and refused to process payment?Or decided that Viagra was immoral, or alcohol? Anybody who returns to smoking, because PayPal terminated their access to Ecigs, a legal product, proven to be beneficial in reducing harm a benefit that was hindered, impinged, infringed or otherwise impeded, without any bonafide or lawful reason, and suffers harm as a result, should be able to seek damages because PayPal knows, or should reasonably know that their policies will likely have a negative impact on the health of their customers. More so if the reason given is arrived at without any supporting data, I'm fairly sure that PayPal allows people to purchase ski tickets, climbing equipment and other materials that relate to inherently dangerous activities, so the arbitrary decision to place obstacles in the way of people fighting an addiction, and seeking harm reduction, appears, unless they can justify their position somehow, to be malicious, and which in no legitimate way furthers the interest of the public good. Malicious acts, in civil law, irregardless of whether the act was lawful or not, are usually viewed in a very negative light by jurys, and the courts.If PayPal allowed a person access to purchase insulin, but not Methadone it would appear to the average person, that PayPal is behaving in a biased manner, and as such, should be held accountable for the harm, loss, pain and suffering of those affected by their at best ignorant and irresponsible, and at worse, malicious and cruel actions. What if PayPal decided not to process purchases of either the koran, or bible, but allowed Mein Kampf? Would they be accountable if the Brown-shirts became a problem? Vaping may not be totally safe, but compared to smoking, it is much less unhealthy. All the science so far, is able to say, is that the long term effects of ecigs are unknown. The effects of cigarettes are known. Considering their minimal liability in processing payment for ecigs, a legal product, I'd be surprised if they felt strongly enough to risk a trial.




You truly do not even understand capitalism.

I don't understand, how does that work? I'm missing it.

You also cannot take an infant into a bar, even if they do not consume alcohol.
See the correlation, genius?

Buy PayPal and change the rules.
Everything else is useless.

Wrong. They filed against the tobacco company's. Because they knew the harm. BTW, Capitalism is a system whereby 2 or more parties enter into voluntary agreements to their mutual benefit. remove voluntary, or mutual benefit, and its no longer Capitalism. Like we have now. Governments, vested interests set maximum and minimum artificial values. Countless agencys regulate what is, or is not allowed, all predicated by which lobbyists have the deepest pockets.

This is not Capitalism.

You send the money directly from Paypal. Easy.

I wondered how long it would take for the scummy trolls to infect yet another perfectly reasonable thread...
