At eJuices.co, your business is our priority. We want to make sure your vape shop is profitable and successful. Our account managers and sales representatives are working around the clock to get you the data and advice you need to stay successful. While flavor bans, floor taxes, and other legislation may affect your ability to do business,there is a much bigger threat: Senate Bill 1253 (S. 1253). This bill will prohibit the United States Postal Service (USPS) from shipping vape products.
What This Means For Your Business
The eJuices.co team wants to stress that the banning of vape mail will not only affect customers who buy online but will also affect your ability to do business. This will push delivery to private shipping companies such as FedEx, UPS, or DHL. This could increase the costs of vaping products by as much as $20 per order on retail, but this could drastically increase for wholesale orders. This could also increase unnecessary points of contact which may exacerbate the COVID-19 crisis.
For example, if you’re looking to make a big inventory purchase, banning vape mail can and will increase costs that you might have to pass onto consumers. This is the last thing that the eJuices.co team wants you to do. As a point of access for flavors and vape products, your products should be accessible and affordable.
How Do I Keep Vape Mail Legal?
Illicit sales of vape products rather than using the USPS for vape mail may be the real problem. As a business owner, you should strongly enforce T21 (which eJuices.co also supports) and inform your customers of the consequences of banning vape mail.Vaping360 reports that many illicit vape sellers are using eBay to sell to minors. Be a voice in your community and remind people to buy from legitimate vape sellers, such as your own shop. These measures will have a more meaningful impact than banning the USPS from mailing vape products (as well as other unintended consequences that may arise).
Take action today and keep vape mail legal. Vape products should be accessible and affordable to all. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always contact your eJuices.co account manager or sales representative.
