    Was browsing the Sir Vape (sirvape.co.za) website this morning and the chat message pops up with the usual "We're online and ready to help". I always ignore it, lol.

    So I decided to put them to the test - told them I want to quit the stinkies and I want something strong and easy with no hassles.

    Was quite impressed with the responses I was getting. And the speed of them.

    First they asked if I wanted strong to suppress nicotine cravings or strong throat hit. I said I didn't know but I smoked Rothmans Blue - hehe.

    They they asked if I want a tight pull or a more open pull. I said tight I think.

    And they pointed me to the pod section of their website and suggested five options. They said I should look and see if there is something I like amongst the options suggested.

    Was quite impressed at the speed of responses and the advice offered. Without trying to over push one particular product.

    Well done Sir Vape team - @Sir Vape , @BigGuy

    I begrudgingly bought 2 juggerknots from them a while back, since at the time The Vape Den was out of stock. Over R1000 for them? Disappointed about the pricing.

    Is there actually humans responding to it? I thought it was a bot that identify key words anc then point you in the direction. Not the Sir Vape site, all sites with the chat popup in general. Might use it more often then.

    Definitely a human @Adephi
    There is no way that was a bot that chatted to me this morning

    If it was a bot - then it fooled me completely...

    Now you have me curious... lol

    I’d like to know why the Juggerknot was charged at such a price, when other places can charge at a lower price.

    Hey bud we all have different pricing on certain products. You will find we will be cheaper on other items than other shops. All depends on qtys purchased and courier charges.

    I’m focusing on the price of the Juggerknot. I don’t personally believe courier charges would justify over R1000 for this product. If other places can sell it for under R1000 so can you.

    Ok let me explain:

    Company A - Brings in 50 Juggernauts
    Company B - Brings in 50 Juggernauts, 20 RDA's, 20 mods

    Would the cost of company A's Juggernauts be the same as company B's with shipping at the end of the day or would company B's cost per item be less?

    Also I think most of the suppliers in SA take a knock when it comes to slightly higher end products. Some companies are willing to go less and more which they are welcome to. We believe in getting prducts in at the best price possible. Just a thought if you ordered direct from QP themselves with the slowest shipping options you would be paying close to R1300 for your product excluding vat charges and custom charges.

    Im a loyal Sirs customer... and was one of the first addicts to buy a Juggerknot mini. At that point only Vape Den were selling them in SA, so I bought three from them over time. Then I wanted another one ( gunmetal ) in colour. Vape Den was sold out, so i bought one from Sir Vape and paid more. My point ? willing buyer, willing seller. Do i feel out done ? Nope.... will i buy another one from Sir Vape? Absolutely, but only if i cannot get it from Vape Den at a better price. Still get were you coming from.. peace out:headbang:

    I don’t care for your explanation. There’s a company that is able to bring them in for a lot less, point is SO SHOULD YOU.

    Supply and demand determines price among other factors.
    No one is forced to buy, if you feel the price is too high, buy somewhere else.
    Besides, I think the purpose of this thread is for retailer reviews.

    Maybe all vendors should start price fixing so they can all charge the same price and then we could get all retailers in all different industries to do the same. Maybe take it one step further and get to government to force all companies to all to pay the exact same salaries for everyone So everyone can be the same.

    I think it's very rude and immoral to tell a vendor what he should or shouldn't charge for any product in his store,we have no right to,or do we go to Checkers and question them as to why they selling washing powder more expensive than Pick n Pay? I hardly buy from Sir Vape but I wouldn't question them on there pricing,because I understand as a businessman how business works

    I personally also do not buy from Sir Vape (they are a bit pricier than most shops) But there are so many factors that dictate pricing that it's not fair to expect them to have to match other shop's pricing. We have a lot of online shops to our disposal in SA, find the one with the prices that suits your needs and budget. As a vendor it seems they treat their clients very well looking at the reviews. Keep up the good work @Sir Vape
