Shipping & Excise Tax Announcement
Recently our government passed provisions in regards to the PACT Act. The provision includes a complete and total ban on the mailing of all vapor products of all kinds through the USPS, FedEx, and UPS carriers, and we'd like to clarify how this affected vape shipments moving forward.
Due to PACT Act regulations, all packages will require an Adult Signature (21+) upon delivery with an I.D. check and include an additional fee at checkout.
Please see a list of important shipping updates:
- All orders over $50 ship for free
- All orders below $50 are subject to a $10 shipping fee
- Moving forward, all packages will require an Adult Signature (21+) upon delivery
- If we are unable to ship to your State, a notification will be indicated at the checkout
We are committed to serving the vaping community and will continue to operate to serve our customers. As of April 27th, we partnered with a new delivery network available for customers in certain regions of the U.S. Our team is continuously working on building an extensive network of regional and local carriers for shipping while adhering to State and Federal laws.
What is the PACT Act?
In December 2020, a congressional amendment to the PACT Act was signed as part of the omnibus spending bill. The effect of this new law broadens the definition of tobacco products to include electronic cigarettes, vapes, E-Liquids, and vaping accessories.
Starting March 27, 2021, the PACT will require online retailers to collect state and local excise taxes on vaping products and require Adult Signatures on all deliveries nationwide. Other compliance requirements include labeling and packaging, record-keeping, and State and Federal registration and reporting.
Furthermore, USPS will be prohibited from accepting packages of vapor products. Unfortunately, FedEx and UPS have voluntarily issued internal policy changes to stop the shipment of vapor products.
For your information, these carriers are expected to stop shipping vape products starting the following dates:
-FedEx, March 1, 2021
-UPS, April 5, 2021
-U.S. Postal Service (USPS), April 26, 2021, or earlier*,
Coverage will be limited in the initial rollout, and we may not be able to serve our entire customer base due to logistical constraints or lack of regional carrier service. However, as the carrier’s coverage expands, we will make sure shipping services are made available as soon as possible so hang on tight. Shipping options, costs, and coverage areas will be made available during the checkout process.
If we are unable to ship to your State, a notification will be indicated at checkout. If it is a temporary pause, we are working closely with the State to resume sales as soon as possible. Please check in with us in a few weeks, as our shipping options will be made more available weekly.
Thank you for your continued support for years to come!
