Hi to all,

I have been looking at drop shipping electronic cigarettes for a while now. I have not advertised them for sale as i am unsure of the rules and regulations surrounding them.

I have tried to talk to both New Zealand Customs and Ministry of Health about them but customs could not give a straight answer and ministry of health class them as medical.

Has anyone had any experience importing and selling these in NZ?

I do see them for sale on some sites in NZ but it just seems like one big grey area.

I think i would be a fantastic product to aid people to quit smoking as the New Zealand Government has rasied smoking prices 3 times in the last year to very expensive prices.

Thanks Guys

Hi Cody,

Most of the research being done as to how safe or effective these devices are, is being done in New Zealand. I tried searching for information or documents stating that this is not allowed in NZ but found none :)
