While I might have to go through a few contortions, I've still been able to use PayPal for my last few vaping items. My last order was on 2/12/21 for a Rincoe Jellybox Mini 80W.

Sometimes is shows up initially as a payment option. When it doesn't I backtrack and sooner or later it's there?

Believe one time I followed a forum member's advice (djvillan?) and logged out of my account, logged back in and was able to use PayPal!

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.



This is a move by paypal, not FastTech. Do you think FastTech wants to limit your options in purchasing from them?

Your complaint should be addressed to paypal, and more to the scumbag corrupt politicians that are restricting your freedom and acting against the interests of their citizens under orders from their sponsors.

Yes, it's a move by Paypal, but Fasttech has had enough time to provide solutions, like other sites have done.

I havent had any issues using PP although I have not made a purchase order today should my ability to do so have changed overnight.

I see that I have the PP option still but as well CC. Are you seeing the PP option before you check out and/or can you use CC?

FT's website has had glitches for years, the search functions are rather poor, vape gear has been weirdly categorized as long as I can remember, stock status is rarely ever accurate. I could go on. But for some reason that's never stopped me from buying here. Apparently I quite like this quirky dysfunctional store.

I doubt me having to go "the Aspire route" for all vape products, would change that. I'll just curse a bit, every time I buy something random, and immediately cancel the order for a gift certificate for what I really wanted to buy.

I'm NOT making any kind of political capital here. You missed the point entirely, whereas Gatok below understands what I'm getting at...

Yes, exactly this.

Indeed, all the options are still there on the payment page. It's just that PP is no longer playing ball with vaping orders once you try and pay for them. Slowly but surely, their net is widening, as we've seen from various posts here over the last year or so, and before long will encompass everyone.

@OP, agreed. But times have changed. It is not that FT fell apart, other chinese retailers stepped in to compete. Then, LI battery restrictions world wide. Then, credit cards started rejecting vape orders. Then, the EU restrictions. Then, the bans in other countries, like India, USA and others. Not to mention a little virus.

All fasttech can do is try to update shipping methods. Keep in mind it is a situation of "beg forgiveness" rather than "beg for permission. If your country bans shipping or import, ordering becomes a crap shoot. Maybe it sneaks through, maybe it gets caught and rejected.

Ya place your bet and takes your chances.

Wherever you are, I hope you stocked up and are prepared. Good luck everyone.
