    Looking for international vape shops that can ship to SA - hopefully hassle free
    I am in the market for a high end mech mod and it seems like the SA market has a big lack of mechanical mods available

    If anyone can please assist with links to shops that they have used and trust

    Most international Vape shops will ship to SA. The problem is DHL having stopped shipping Vape products so you may have to rely on SAPO unreliable services unless if the sellers don’t declare what they’re shipping as Vape products… it’s a bit tricky.

    That is the main problem that I came across is that most vape shops that I contacted said they ship to SA but via DHL but then locals tell me that DHL does not do vape mail anymore - so not really sure how to go about this cause there is no chance i am trusting SAPO with a $500 + package

    It may work out well if the seller doesn’t use the business name when doing the shipping…

    Eish , that could be a problem - would having a importers code help at all ? and where does one start to look fopr trustworthy shops - I am sure some of the OG vapers on here would not mind sharing a link to a shop or two ;)

    also, be careful what is declared on the invoice that comes with the item from the origin

    was once caught with something declared as "metal pipes" (RTA's) from the land in the East and ended up paying penalties here, but that was only once

    Seems like it is a real mission to get vaping stuff into the country atm - If I have family abroad would they be able to send it over to me without it being a hassle , I have fam in Aus and the USA that would be willing to help

    @AlienPhaze The USA seems to be the only country with an issue with Vape Gear. I have recently bought high-end gear from Malaysia, Greece and Hungary shipped via DHL with no problem.

    Also, keep an eye on the classifieds! I’ve picked up some lovely stuff over the last couple of months.

    As a bonus, there’s the occasional fun discussion when someone thinks their prized possession is somewhat higher-end than it is… :facepalm:

    I don't really use Mechs so all the sites I frequent are regulated mods and RTA's. You will need to join Facebook groups to get the goodies.

    If you are interested in regulated and RTA's you can message me on FB and I will add you to some groups.

    I did send an enquiry on their site to request certain mods to test the water so lets see how that goes - thanks for that

    Which mech are you considering getting I would really like to know seeing that you said it cost $500? I myself wanted to get me a side fire mech from Armageddon but will I only do so once I have the funds for it
