    What @Grand Guru said.
    As well as points or recognition for the smallest item purchased,
    Everyone don't have a budget and has to pinch to keep on vaping.

    Financial support for vaping advocacy non profit organisations. It's in their interest too. Not just vapers making donations. Many probably do but vapers just don't know about it perhaps.

    Beat or match proven price, some people like to support their favourite vendors.

    Then we'd need points for fuel like the club cards we have at supermarkets.
    And what @Timwis said.

    Brand awareness and marketing like free bumper stickers.(yes it's still a thing) just over active and they call it sticker bombs. So original bumper stickers. T-shirts with certain amount spent,caps at random.(some vendors does or used to do this)
    Etc. It will get non vapers attention as well.

    From a website point of view I share the same sentiments @Rob Fisher did many months or years ago but I'm 90% sure he did,if a website doesn't have a 'Whats new' or 'Latest arrivals' tab I find it almost impossible to visit that website again.I will have to scan the entire website from start to end to find out if there are any new items and its just the worst feeling in the world after a dry hit,so I only browse vape shop websites that have the 'Latest arrivals' column and those are the businesses that get my money,the rest of the businesses have a 0% chance of a sale from me,it might not be much,but think how many people might be thinking the same but just not voicing it out,I give @Sir Vape credit alongside many other websites that offer this service that makes buying from you online an absolute pleasure,please take lesson from there business ideas if you keen on making an even bigger success of your current business,thank you for reading,I would appreciate if members would rate this post with an 'agree' or 'disagree' just to see if my brain still has some sort of sense or not

    I hate the Latest or New Arrivals section on most websites (frustrate the hell out of me) as they tend to be the latest released products all on pre-order so by definition they haven't arrived at all!

    Yes but you said Latest arrivals tab, but most sites that have a latest arrivals or New arrivals tab are actually pre-order product especially Chinese vendor sites. I agree being able to click new arrival and seeing all the latest arrived products would be great and a few sites they might be newly arrived products but it's not my fault that on most sites these sections don't list newly arrived products at all but nearly everything is on pre-order.

    Just give me good service with a smile and I'll be back even if I have to pay a few more bucks. And for Pete's sake, package the stuff properly!
