Has anyone found a good e-cigarette dropshipper? The best one ive come across is Drop Ship Electronic Cigarettes and E-Liquid - Rapid Vapor Electronic Cigarettes , They gave me some real good prices i can make some good money on but currently only ship in north america... I am going to list on ebay but i know i will have to list as a vaporizer and not a ecig, has anyone have any experience with this?

    I looked at that site, not many choices available there.

    Ecig market is definitely growing, I'm interested in this as well.

    I'm an ecig user btw, just contact me if you need help with product knowledge, I might be able to help.

    They have more products available then whats on the site , then send me a catalog with a price list of whats in stock / out of stock, i think they are local suppliers just coming online, they sent me unmarked images aswell for my listing which is a plus for me anyhow

    Yeah I found a few in my searches but only one decent one. http://electroniccigaretteswholesaler.com - they have eGo starter kits (though they aren't real Joyetech) but overall you would end up having an e-com store with less than 10 product listings.

    I ended up not pursuing it because it would very difficult to find customers, you'd either have to challenge the big vapor stores in SERPs for big product keywords or try to steal affiliates away from the name brands (V2, Halo, Green Smoke). It would be tough to do it even if you held your own inventory, let alone try to dropship.

    E-Cig customers are basically either enthusiasts who know what they want and where to find it already, or people who know nothing about them and search some form of this: {best} electronic cigarette {brands|reviews}". The enthusiasts will go to their trusted supplier and the second type will inevitably end up being persuaded by an affiliate review site to buy from one of the big brands.

    Unless you are thinking of marketing through somewhere other than search engines and most big ad networks (e-cig ads banned in TOS), it could be a struggle. I think being able to create delicious e-liquid is where the money's at, talk about profit margins!

      Wonder if people will purchase e-cigarettes without trying them first. They wouldn't have the opportunity to try them if they purchase them online. How would they know which flavor of vapor they want to choose. Also, when people run out of the vapor, they would want it pronto, and probably go to the store first instead of waiting for shipping.

      Definitely agree that this is a growing market and think it is a good niche.

        Anyone actually already have one up and running? As for not being able to test them, I don't think you get to test your e cig before you buy it at the store. Right?

        I think it's a good market but wonder if it may become saturated? Just my opinion. What do you guys think?

      I've thought about doing this sort of thing as well. However, the one thing that's keeping me from taking any action right now is that e-cigs are in legal limbo (here in the US anyway) right now. Online e-cig sales could be banned within the next year by the government. The e-cig industry is growing, it's becoming dominated by large corporations with deep pockets. Blu E Cigs was bought out by a large tobacco company not too long ago. It'll definitely be tough to compete with their marketing reach.

      I don't want to be too negative here. I think it's a great idea. I'm an e-cig user myself and think they can be a potential gold mine, depending on how the US decides to regulate them.

      An alternative to dropshipping would be buying e-cigs and supplies wholesale. This would be a lot more work and require more start-up money, but you'd have more product flexibility.

    Listing E-Cigs or Vapor products isn't allowed according to eBay's TOS. Even though at the moment there is over 500 listings dedicated to "Dry Herb Vaporizers".

    Just becareful, because eBay will suspend your account.

    I found a great thread on these boards with a plethora of drop-shippers.

    While I'll cop to the fact that I didn't go through the entire list myself...I'm as willing to bet you'll find what you're looking for as I would be surprised if you didn't.

      i use a ecig company in the uk. had to do my research and ring them a few times to make sure it was all properly organised. started my ebay account a few weeks ago and its slowly ticking along.. i dont put as much work in as i probably should (then id make more sales) but im pretty busy, so its nice making so extra spending money.
      oh, and i mainly like it (yes i sound lazy) because i place the orders with them when ive made a sale and they dispatch direct (yay no wrapping and packing for me!)
      if you search best4ecigs in like google and type in dropshipping it comes up as a trade n dropshipping site.
      came on here before to see if anyone had put anything, but as it seems relativly new noticed no one had put stuff.
      (oh, and its cool if u actually smoke the stuff cause then i can blag a few more sales with what i write on my page etc)
