These days you can find anything online, wholesale oats, children’s toys and even spare computer parts. However if you’re trying to find e-cigs, e-juice or any vaporizers, vaporizer parts or vaporizer sets online you should pay extra attention to which retailer you go through. It can be against terms of services to purchase vaporizers parts from Amazon and eBay because it violates their list of prohibited items for sellers. Some companies are still trying to get away with selling their vaporizer products online, but there are a lot of reasons not to give those companies your patronage.
Don’t get me wrong, you will find batteries and atomizers for sale or even dry herb vape pens on Amazon and eBay, but eventually those companies will get shut down by the website. They generally draw customers in with their unbelievable low prices but don’t be fooled, the companies are operating illegally and should not be supported. Chances are they don’t provide warranty like King Pen Vapes 1 year warranty, but even if they do provide it, there listing will get shut down so you can’t claim that warranty from them anyways. It’s like a Ponzi scheme would be where they promise you something only to run away at the end because they have no obligations after their listing is taken down after selling vaporizers on Amazon or eBay.
The following products are among the e-cig and vaporizer items prohibited from being sold on the online web store:
- Electronic pipes
- Electronic cigars
- New and replacement cartridges
- Vape Batteries
- Vape juice or similar refill liquids
As you can plainly see from the list above, any company that is selling vaporizers or vaporizer parts using Amazon or eBay is very clearly violating terms of service and should not be supported. If you are interested in purchasing a vaporizer, the logical first step is to go directly to the authorized resellers.
If you do choose to purchase your vaporizer through eBay or Amazon it will generally be through a somewhat shady distributor that partakes in illegal practices. This allows them to undercut the cost quite a bit, which can be a great draw to purchasing through the giant online retailer. But this devalues the product in a deeper way than just selling it at a lower price. With the product cost lower than the manufacturer predicted feasible, there won’t be a proper cost analysis available for future manufacturing and warranty costs. With those costs skewed, reliable companies won’t be able to meet the same price with the same manufacturing quality, and products will become less desirable and less reliable.
It is also quite likely that the distributors you will find for vaporizers and vaporizer accessories on Amazon or eBay will not provide a warranty. Most of the products are cheaply made and fall apart quite quickly, which is probably why the independent retailers selling them don’t offer warranties. If you purchase your vape pen directly through an authorized reseller that is reliable online, you will usually get a detailed warranty that provides service when you need help with functionality or replacement parts for your piece.
Basically you should completely stay away from purchasing vapor pens or parts from Amazon and eBay altogether. The retailers aren’t trustworthy, the comments clearly show fault in the product and they won’t replace broken products. You would be supporting illegal companies and helping to mar the vaporizer industry. Buying from the manufacturer or a respected vapor company ensures that you support a thriving vape industry and quality products.
