    Hi everyone
    I've been searching the net for great deals on vaping equipment and happened upon a site called Bling Vape Co (https://blingsa.co.za). The prices on mods are pretty good and I'm really tempted to buy but I wanted to know if anyone has ordered from them before and if they are reliable to buy from?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    I found them a week ago and I went ahead and placed a tester order with them.
    Wismec Machina, mod only, for R360 including delivery. At that price if it comes then I've paid half what it would cost locally, if not it's not a lot of money to lose...

    Oh, please ... someone ... say they're OK, but ...

    I've just checked them on https://www.scamadviser.com/ and it is potentially dicey.

    @Greyz I eagerly await your reply

    EDIT: The prices of their juices are about right -in the region of what I would expect to pay for an international juice purchased from one of our known vendors in SA, but the mods are unbelievably cheap. Too good to be true?

    Also, they say, " All Customers can enjoy piece of mind with the NO FAKES policy, If you get a device, please scratch and authenticate. as we scan the bar code and tag it with your unique order number before sending out any product, so if you find a fake we will reimburse you your order payment and give you R1 000 000 for the trouble of going through that nonsense of fakes."

    R1 000 000??? In that case I'd be only too happy to find a fake - if they honour their policy, that is!

    I did send off an email to their Tech Support and did receive a reply from a lady named Estie, although the email address was from a Mr Frik Rademan....
    Estie did tell me they working on a local warehouse where they will hold stock, for now it appears their like a drop shipper of sorts.
    Guess it's just wait and see for now. I haven't received my tracking number yet but figured I'd give them a few days before I pounce.

    I will be sure to post an update in this thread.

    @zadiac @Greyz Frik Rademan in Secunda is the owner of the website. All the info is listed on Scamadvisor.

    It's good that you received a reply @Greyz. My reasoning is that if the whole thing were a scam, they wouldn't bother replying to your email.

    They list Paypal as an option - at worst you would get a refund from Paypal if the goods don't arrive.

    The site seemed extremely dodgy! I think the last time I checked it, all the hyperlinks on the contact and about us took me to www.google.com

    If it works, it would be really great. They do have stuff at epic prices.

    @Melis I hold you responsible for the fact that I went to sleep only at 4.30 a.m. !!! ;)

    The selection of juice on that site is just incredible!! I'm always on the prowl for coffee juice for
    https://www.ecigssa.co.za/coffee-e-juice-research.t47247/#post-638125, and, as always, I entered the word "coffee" in the their search bar. Sometimes I'm lucky and I find one or two, but WOW! There are hundreds! I haven't even gone through all of them yet- eventually I was falling asleep over my keyboard.

    I must say, I'm very impressed with their website. In my search for coffee juice I view many SA websites and oh boy, do they have a lot to learn! This is what impresses me about Bling:

    1. With most of the juices, the VG ratio is given - unlike many SA vendors.

    2. With all of the juices, flavour descriptions are given - unlike a certain SA vendor who clearly doesn't deem it necessary to do so, in spite of the fact that the flavour description gives no indication as to the flavour.

    3. I'm familiar with some of the juice brands. By familiar I mean that I've tried them or seen them on SA vendors' websites,
    for example:

    Cafe con Leche
    Barrista Brew
    Joyetech e-liquid (well-known brand so their juice must be OK)
    Kilo Moo

    I also see that they have some of Phil Busardo's e-liquids - I thought he just did reviews!

    I wonder if any of our forum oldies (old in experience!) know anything about this site?
    Tagging @Silver @Rob Fisher @Stosta @Andre @Room Fogger (another possible group-buy?)

    If I haven't tagged you please don't feel offended. I've just tagged names that immediately came to mind.

    @Braki Have a look at the prices of mods on this website - quite unbelievable! Not that I'm recommending them as they're still an unknown.

    @Rob Fisher
    What's a drop shipper? I assume one pays but never receives the goods?
    And are you assuming this, or have you dealt with them or know someone who has?

    You pay and then they order from China and you wait!

    I haven't tried them and never will. Waiting has never been something I'm very good at!

    @vicTor Most vapers are X-smokers. A person who has recently stopped smoking is very edgy and needs something to fiddle with. Most peeps can't/don't chain-vape, so apparently fidget spinners can help. I wonder if it does? Thye're damn expensive though, but I've ordered 2 on a sale - not for me, but for my dogs. They've never smoked, but perhaps they'll enjoy playing with them.

    It's true that there's a waiting period and they say so on the site. I'm also not good at waiting but for coffee juice (and they have soooo many .....) I could cultivate a bit of patience ... I think ...

    This is what the site says (for those who haven't looked at the site yet)

    FREE SHIPPING EASTER
    Free Shipping On ALL Order Using PROMO CODE

    Very similar to Takealot. Stuff I've ordered from them, they came from the USA - sometimes you wait two weeks for it to come through. My mom waited a month. Depends on what you ordered - my book Thief's Magic by Trudi Canavan took two weeks to get to me. My tarot cards (UK publisher) was about a week or so...

    Just to be clear, a drop-shipper doesn't ever touch your goods. They will take your money and order the goods on your behalf, the goods are then shipped directly to you from the supplier, which means that you are also liable for the import duties, taxes etc. unless they expressly state that they cover these costs.

    Companies like Takealot will order the goods from their suppliers, the stuff goes to them and then they send it to you, so this isn't drop-shipping.
