What to Look For When Buying Products
When researching for the best online vape shop products look at the reviews and how previous customers rated the product. You should be looking for quality ratings (stars) or positive reviews. If you’re wondering about a certain flavor, their shipping policy or if they do refunds, read the comments because you can find out a lot about the company through other customers. If a customer had a bad experience they will surely tell you about it.
What will make you a repeat customer is a supplier that has a large selection of tanks, mods, accessories, juices and more. There are many good, reputable stores and they all have something good to offer. Look for a large selection, similar flavors, adjustable PG/VG ratio, and variety of sizes available.
A store with a large selection is great, but if the item you want is never in stock it’s time to pick a new store. That said, you should have the option to be notified by email when the item is back in stock.
What to Avoid When Shopping For Products
Buying Without Reading Reviews
Always check the reviews of products before buying anything. This is why reviews and recommendation carry so much weight with vapers is because we have all lost money on tanks that leaked, e-liquid that tasted bad or products that just never arrived. And we always wished somebody would have told us before we wasted money on something that didn’t work.
Don’t Buy From Sites that Don’t List Prices
It is always better to make an informed decision about products or services. Watch out for sites that don’t show their prices on the front page of results. There is no reason not to disclose all the information about an item to a potential customer. If they don’t it’s a red flag.
Don’t Take Loyalty Too Seriously
It’s perfectly acceptable to visit several different sites to find what you want. Loyalty points make great discounts for money spent on previous shopping visits. Don’t feel like you have to buy all your vape gear at one store, they run out of stock from time to time and another store may have it if that one doesn’t so shop around.
