I am looking for a dropship supplier of electronic cigarette and vape (vaporizer) gear. All I can find on the SaleHoo directory and on the forum are either China-based suppliers or US suppliers who only carry one or two starter kits unbranded that are designed for low-income convenience stores, flea markets, etc. I am looking for a full-blown vape/e-cigarette dropshipper that carries a full line of stuff from major brands like Kangertech, Aspire, Innokin, etc and is based in the USA.

I don't want to drop ship forever, I just want to get a leg up and eventually buy my own inventory. I am dead serious about getting into this industry but unfortunately I have not enough capital to really do it full-scale. I know a lot about this stuff as I am an avid vaper myself.

Can anyone please help me out with this?

My friend,
Check e-cig.com (they do dropshipping)

Thanks, but they are unreliable and a scam. Plus they put their own logo on just about anything and what they are doing is using drop ship retailer to advertise their own site(s). LOL. I was born on Tuesday, but not last tuesday. they own e-cig.com and e-liq.com and they are well known in the online vaping forums as a company to avoid.

Rachel,

The wholesale reason for my post was because "your suppliers" listed in your directory are not real vape gear wholesale dropshippers. They sell general merchandise and they happen to carry one or two low performance (if they perform at all) 1st generation e-cig products that no one wants anymore and comes in terrible packaging anyway. The vaping world has come a long way and we are now into what is arguable 3rd or even 4th generation of e-cig gear. It's nothing like it was only 2 short years ago. I'm talking real products that people want...Kanger, Innokin, Aspire, Smok, etc.

Hi Rachel,

We are likely one of those companies you are referring too that only carries basic units. Our focus is on manufacturing the best e-juice possible, and at this time equipment is really something we offer as a convenience to our customers. We do have access to the brands you are looking for and might be able to help you out.

One thing though that you should keep in mind is that 98% of smokers have never tried e-cigs. For this reason, they typically will not risk the kind of money required to obtain high end units. They have often tried those cheap and nasty Blu or Vuse units and for that reason, they just never move up to something better.

What you might want to consider is focusing on some high quality juices, and these basic and affordable starter e-cigs just to get people to try e-cigs out. Then once they see that there are better options out there and feel safe with the products...you can upsell them to a better unit. This way you are focusing on a much larger demographic, the 98% of people who have never vaped instead of the 2% are familiar with the product.

The brands you named are amazing, and as you mentioned have come a long way. But by focusing on them right now and exclusively, you are really limiting your market. It is like choosing to be IBM instead of Microsoft. IBM focused on hardware, and struggled to make any money. Microsoft focused on the software to run their hardware and made billions. e-Juice is that software, and in our opinion is the best place to start.

Hopefully you see this in the constructive way it is intended. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
