USA Vape Mail Ban news/sales Megathread https://ift.tt/2OxHrWQ

Okay folks, there have been a lot of questions regarding the upcoming mailing ban on vaping products in the US and what will/won’t happen. If you have more information that I haven't included, or would like to clarify something I will be happy to edit the post to add more information or correct any information present here. Please message me or leave a comment on the post.

One thing that is for sure, the time to stock up is now. With that in mind I am attempting to compile a list of vendors that have current or near future sales at the bottom of this post

u/ElectricHamster89 summed it up here

The bullet point breakdown:

  • USPS will not be shipping direct to consumers on or around April 27th.
  • FedEx has stated they will not ship vapor products starting March 1st
  • UPS has stated they will not ship vapor products on or after April 5th
  • DHL already restricts domestic shipping of vapor products

So where does this leave us? Well, likely this still means USPS will continue to allow B2B purchases to be mailed, so businesses like Brick and Mortar vape shops should still receive supplies, and DIY is still (with the likely exception of sourcing nicotine) viable for making e liquid yourself. Non-specific purpose cotton and wire will still be available so rebuildables will still remain viable if you already have them.

Speaking directly with several DIY Vendors I have been told the following:

  • River Supply Co’s response:

    We are still working on alternative solutions but unfortunately cannot provide any further information at the moment.

  • Nude Nicotine’s response:

    The ban is going to affect all vape products, including the ones for DIY.
    We are working on a plan with alternative shippers to get our customers their products, however, the shipping time may increase.
    We suggest to all our customers to order and stock up now, as there is going to a slight transitional period before our alternative shipping methods run smoothly.

  • Liquid Barn’s response:

    We are working hard to determine the impact of recent legislation. At this time it is too early to tell what the extent of this will have on future business. As we are updated with more information we will begin to notify customers.

  • LiquidNicotineWholesalers’ response:

    The ban is written clearly enough that we will not be able to ship with USPS and FedEx. We are currently in talks with other couriers to find a solution for the vape mail ban. We do not have any plans on shutting our doors. We will reach out to all of our customers once we know more.

  • Bull City Flavors’ response:

    we've been officially cleared by FedEx legal and don't anticipate any issues from the USPS or UPS. … I spoke with several of our key suppliers in Sept/Oct of 2019 after Trump announced a national flavor ban and it was bleak so it is possible that some flavor houses don't survive.

  • Flavor Jungle’s response: In a phone conversation with the vendor they have said that due to the multi-use nature of the products they sell, and the fact that they do not sell nicotine, they do not anticipate any issues for themselves specifically to sell directly to consumers.

That seems the general consensus among DIY Vendors. Nicotine is the sticking point. If there is one thing to stock up on Right now it is nicotine.

As for juice vendors, many of us love some of the smaller vendors, whether ones born here on reddit or born independently. I’ve reached out to several vendors about a week ago asking about their plans, or any sales they intend to run between today and the beginning of the vape mail ban.


I’ll include here the list of vendors that I’m aware of that have sales currently going on or will have sales soon. I’ve so far reached out to more than 30 vendors regarding this (at time of writing), and will be reaching out to more this week. If you know of a sale not posted here please let me know either in the comments or via PM and I’ll update the thread.
