Normally, I write posts aimed primarily at e-cigarette consumers and the vape community at large. This time around, I’d like to write something specifically for the e-cigarette retailers out there. If you’re thinking about opening an e-cigarette business, this article will be useful for you too as will this guest post from Norm on opening a vape shop.
I know you get bombarded by a ton of e-cigarette manufacturers and wholesalers on a daily basis. I know this, because I get the exact same e-mails and Skype messages you do. I’m not even a merchant, so that tells me many wholesalers and manufacturers aren’t paying much attention and don’t take the time to understand what I do.
Do you think they take the time to understand your business either? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not implying all these companies are bad, I’ve worked with some very good ones. But, I know how important it is to work with a distributor that understands your individual business needs.
It’s not always about the products you can get from a wholesaler, but the service and support they offer that makes a difference. That’s one of the things that sets HawkVape apart from many others.
For starters, their website is well-designed and easy to navigate, making it simple to find the products you want to order for your store. Beyond that, the company, while based in Shenzhen China, has a wholesale service and support representative located in the United States.
A US rep means that you have someone you can speak with during normal hours. The company provides support for the entire ordering process as well as with actually sourcing products. Even if they currently don’t have a specific products in inventory, they can still help you acquire those products.
Don’t think that makes the company thin on products. I visited the site to see what they offered, and they have a big selection of genuine products from Kangertech, Innokin, Aspire, Joyetech and Smok. They also have a great lineup of clones featuring popular mechanical mods and RBA/RDAs. Take a look at their mechanical mod wholesale catalog where you’ll find popular products like the black Kayfun 3.1, the stainless 26650 Tobh atty rda and the Flip v3 Mod.
You’ll also get your orders quickly as HawkVape has negotiated favorable rates from DHL and most orders will arrive in as little as 3-4 days. I’ve heard plenty of horror stories from vendors to know how important reliable shipping is. Payment is simple as well, they even take PayPal and charge only a 2% fee.
It almost goes without saying HawkVape’s pricing is very competitive with increasing discounts for larger quantity orders. Pricing in their offline catalog is even better than the website. Contact the company to get a copy of the catalog. That doesn’t mean you have to make larger orders. There’s no MOQ, but orders should be at least $500.
To recap, here’s the reasons you should consider HawkVape for your wholesale needs:
- Genuine products
- Popular Mod and RBA/RDA clones
- Great pricing
- Excellent customer service
- US-based representative
