We all know the benefits of electronic cigarettes and there is lots of good information about how to choose your first electronic cigarette…but there is not much info available helping you make the decision of where to buy your e-cigarettes and e-liquids. Basically, you have two options, at your local store or from an online retailer.
The 4 Main Factors Of Buying E-Cigs
Here are the pros and cons of buying your e-cigarettes and e-liquids online to help you make a decision. When figuring out where to buy your e-cigarettes and e-liquids there are four main factors you will want to consider: Price, Knowledge, Selection, and Convenience.
All about that price
One of the main factors we use to buy almost everything in our lives, including electronic cigarettes, is a price. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you are trying to buy, you are always looking for the highest quality product at the lowest price.
E-cigarettes are no different. As you know, the price of almost everything is better online than at your local store because of the low overhead expenses of an online retailer. Thus when considering the price of e-cigarettes and e-liquids, definitely shop online because you will find much lower prices…often up to 50%-60% less than in your local e-cig shop.
What you need to know before shopping
When a person is first starting to think about using electronic cigarettes, they are often very overwhelmed with what products to buy and how to use them. So they do the most obvious thing – they head down to their local e-cig shop and ask for help. While this makes sense on the surface, we have learned from numerous calls to our customer service department that this usually ends in disaster.
New users of electronic cigarettes are told a bunch of inaccurate information and pressured into buying a sub-par product. Why does this happen? This happens because most local e-cig shops have an agenda – they have one or two brands and a few models and they want you to buy them. It doesn’t matter if their brand and models are actually the best fit for your budget and goals, they are going to make you believe their few products will solve all your problems.
How to select the perfect brand
If you really want to know how many brands there are, what are the best ones and what brand will be perfect for you, it will do you more good to go online and learn, than to ask in your local shop. Why? Because the local shop only have few brands in their offer, and from those brands, they even have fewer models.
They cannot recommend you something they do not have in their store, and their goal is to sell. So it may be the best to browse through a few websites and read their blogs about specific brands and offers before you make your decision.
How convenient will it be for you
First, if you will be buying all of your liquid and other accessories online, you need to find a shop that offers products you need at affordable prices, and that their shipping regulations are perfect for you. If you will be buying it in a shop, look if you have a local shop and if that shop sells quality enough products.
You don’t wannt to run out of luqid or other things before you can get some more so, be organized and always buy in advance. If convenience is high on your priority list, you’re probably better off just going online. You’ll get better prices, a wider selection of products and more knowledge.
