Getting a genuine, good quality vape product is a bit of a problem, especially if you are a beginner.
There are chances that you may be sold imitation or fake products or you may be ripped off.
This can be prevented if you find a reliable retailer near your residence or an online site that is the real thing. This usually takes some time –but most new vapers do get there- ultimately!
But, read this short piece till the end and you can cut down on costs and find exactly what you are looking for in no time at all.
Here’s what you can do to avoid bad vape retailers and products
- Find an Established Vape Shop or Website
This is an absolutely important thing to do if you want real vape products.
A good vape retailer or shop is one that stocks vape products only. Anything else is a bad retail outfit.
These days, we find just anyone – Convenient shops, sex shops, and tobacconists selling vape products. But, and this is a big but, they are not selling the real thing.
They are not selling decent vape products at decent prices. These types of retailers sell vape products at rates higher than even the established vape shops do, and people are lapping these unstandardized products up.
Sometimes these retailers really are clueless about the quality of vape products and still go about selling them. So you, as a consumer, have to get the best quality vape products for the money you pay by staying away from these guys completely.
- Research Well as a Consumer
If you are a vaper who doesn’t have an accessible local vape shop, you would be pushed to buying vape products online. If you do this check on the price. Look around and see that the product is not being offered cheaper somewhere else.
- Verify that your Vape Product is Authentic And if You Buy a Bad Product, Scream about Being Cheated
Most vape e-liquids and hardware have a scratch to check or a QR code for verifying your purchase. Look for this code and don’t buy if the code is not there.
If you still buy a dupe, go back to change it. Let people know that you have been cheated. Put this for the world to know about on the worldwide net. Most businesses care about adverse reactions on social media. Make hay while the sun shines!
Dish out negative reviews online if the retailer doesn’t change the bad product. Writing bad online reviews can help others who may be thinking of buying from the same retailer. This will hurt the bad guy. Strike where it hurts, guys.
- Join Online Vape Communities
There are some great online communities related to vaping. Join them as these are packed with seasoned vapers who will be more than happy to help you take baby steps into the big bad vape world.
They also usually know who the reputable retailers are in your locality too.
Just hop online and see what you can find, but do use the above tips and save yourself wasted time and resources.
Best of vaping, as they say!
