Can You Buy Vape Devices off Amazon?

Posted by Cody on Jul 30th 2019

Amazon currently does not sell any vape cartridges, vape supplies, or vape batteries because of liability concerns. Amazon will block any supplier trying to sell these items and if a seller consistently breaks this rule, they are at risk of being suspended or even banned. After a seller is banned, they have a very slim chance of getting reinstated. The long list of banned items includes the following vape and tobacco related products:

  • Cigarettes
  • Cigars
  • Smokeless Tobacco
  • E-Cigs
  • Accessories for vapes and E-cigs
  • Vape Cartridges
  • Vape Batteries
  • Refill Liquids

Why Does Amazon Not Sell Vape Products?

At Cartridge Supply Co., we frequently get asked if our products can be purchased on Amazon. We love Amazon as much as the next person, but unfortunately, our products (including all empty vape cartridges) fall under Amazon’s prohibited item list. Quite frankly, Amazon has a very strict ban on these products and there is no telling when these rules will change. Currently vapes are in regulatory limbo, and many companies don’t want to touch them until they are fully regulated. Until the FDA releases more data on vaping and the health affects associated with vaping, it is likely that Amazon and other online marketplaces will tread carefully.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t find vapes and vape related products on Amazon. However, if you find these items, they are probably miscategorized and Amazon will eventually find them and take them down. We highly recommend staying away from these sellers because the product is probably poor quality and without any warranty (a great warranty is a must for electronic vapes!). The seller could also be shutdown at a moment notice, leaving your order potentially unfulfilled! Save yourself the headache and find a reputable local dealer or online dealer. We are slightly biased but find a great place to start for all vape cartridge, vape packaging, and vape battery needs!

Bottom line is to stay clear of any vape products you see on Amazon as the sellers aren’t trustworthy and the product reviews clearly show the lack of quality in the products. You should buy your vape supplies from a respected manufacturer and protect yourself from fraud!
