You must be a registered trader and be 18 or over to purchase goods from this website.
1. You can Order Products in the following ways:
- Online via this website
- By telephoning our local rate number 0115 854 8309 or if calling from outside the United Kingdom on
- By posting a completed copy of the The Vape Trade Ltd Order Form to 19 Weaving Gardens, Sherwood, Nottingham NG5 3JH United Kingdom
- When you place an Order for a Product in any of the ways described above ("Order") you are offering to buy it for the price stated, subject to these Terms.
2. When you place your Order online we will send you an email to confirm that we have received it.
This email confirmation will be produced automatically so that you have confirmation of your Order details. The fact that you receive an automatic confirmation does not necessarily mean that we will be able to meet your Order. Once we have sent the confirmation email we will then check availability and contact you with a further email. If the Product(s) is/are available and the details of the Order are correct, this email will be deemed an acceptance and will specify delivery details and confirm the price of the Products purchased. If the Products are not available we will also let you know by email.
3. The Vape Trade Ltd may cancel any sale and not supply products if it is reasonable to do so and may change or discontinue the availability of products at any time at its sole discretion.
If an order is cancelled, any payment made for the products will be refunded in full. This does not affect your statutory rights.
4. All new Orders are deemed separate and each is treated individually.
1. The price for each product is shown on The Vape Trade Ltd and excludes V.A.T at 20%. VAT does not apply on overseas sales.
2. We always try to make sure that the prices on www.thevapetrade.com are accurate but errors may occur.
If we discover an error in pricing of the products in your order we will inform you as soon as possible using the contact details you supply us with. We will then give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it. (If we are unable to reach you we will treat the order as cancelled). If an order is cancelled, any payment made for the products will be refunded in full.
3. You will be notified of estimated delivery costs automatically before you submit your payment details, based on the delivery address you specify.
Some larger orders may require a bespoke shipping price. We will contact you with this price before completing your order.
4. Prices are quoted on www.thevapetrade.com in GBP Sterling
Outside the UK your credit card company should exchange the amount charged to the currency of your country at the current rate but you may use the www.thevapetrade.com currency converter to estimate the price in your currency. Please note that the 'currency converter' is only a guide and may not accurately reflect current exchange rates. Please note that both charges and refunds are in GBP Sterling and The Vape Trade Ltd cannot be held responsible for any loss due to exchange rate fluctuations.
5. Non-EU customers are responsible for Import Duty/Tax in their respective countries.
Unfortunately we cannot advise you what these costs will be - please consult your local customs office for more information.
1. Non account customers must pay for their Order before it is delivered. You can do so by credit card, debit card or direct bank transfer.
2. Account customers will have specific credit terms. At any point you will be able to add funds to your account using your credit card or any of the payment methods detailed above.
- Orders may be processed online, or by telephone, using a credit or debit card (currently VISA, MasterCard, Delta and Switch/Solo). We aim to debit money from your account within one working day after receiving your order.
- To ensure that shopping online is secure, your credit/debit card details will be encrypted to minimise the possibility of someone being able to read them as they are sent over the Internet.
- Your credit card company may also do security checks to confirm it is you making the order.
- All order details and invoices will be sent to the credit card billing address and not the delivery address where the named recipient of the order differs.
- We try to keep www.thevapetrade.com as up to date as possible but cannot guarantee that any particular product will always be available. If we can't supply a product you will not be charged for it and we will refund or re-credit your account with the amount debited by us.
- All offers are available while stocks last. If we are unable to supply a product you have ordered, we will notify you as soon as we can after receiving your order. If this happens, you may cancel your order and we will refund you the money you have paid for it.
- The Vape Trade Ltd delivers to destinations inside and outside the UK.
- If your account qualifies for our standard terms of carriage, you will be notified of estimated delivery costs automatically before you submit your credit card details.
- If your order is made online but you do not pay by credit card, or if you order in any other way, please contact us for details of the delivery charges prior to ordering.
- Delivery outside the EU may be subject to local import taxes, which are your responsibility where they apply. If so, the shipping company should contact you by telephone once your products are in customs to let you know the charge due or else you should consult your local customs office. Unfortunately we cannot advise you what these charges will be and The Vape Trade Ltd is not responsible for them.
- The Vape Trade Ltd aims to deliver products to destinations in the UK within 2-3 days (Courier permitting) in most circumstances, however, each product has a link on the product page stating the estimated delivery time for that product and you should refer to these for more details about delivery times.
- Orders are despatched by 24 Hour Courier. Our couriers require a signature and operate between 9am and 5pm on weekdays only, so please specify an address where someone will be able to sign for your Products between these hours.
- We will make every effort to deliver within the time stated on www.thevapetrade.com but we will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery.
- If the products are not delivered within the estimated delivery time which we quote, please contact us by telephone or email and we will try and ensure that you receive your order as quickly as possible, or if you wish you may cancel your order and we will refund the money you have paid. Please note that in the unlikely event of packages being lost or damage, we are obliged to follow the set procedures of the courier company used.
- Please order from www.thevapetrade.com with enough lead-time to prevent any loss or disappointment resulting from the delivery time as we cannot be responsible for this.
