Invoices are processed in the order they are received. If there were many orders placed over the weekend, then there could be a possible delay in getting your order out. FedEx and USPS does not deliver on weekends or major holidays.

RESTRICTIONS

For ALL international orders, if you choose any shipping option other than USPS Express International, you the customer, takes full responsibility if the package is lost during transit as we can not add insurance or door to door tracking to those options.

Please remember that once a package leaves our facility, we no longer have control of the item, however we will try our best to assist all of our customers in locating their package if it is ever lost during transit.

Since international laws are continuously changing we cannot keep up with what is legal to sell to our customers in other countries. It is up to the customer to be aware of their laws regarding ordering e-liquid/receiving e-liquid/ and any other restrictions regarding other vapor related products. If customs or the shipping carrier confiscates items, we will not be held responsible for the confiscation of such items. It is always the responsibility of the customer to only order what is allowable for you to receive.

Certain items cannot be shipped internationally. All batteries or devices with built in batteries cannot be shipped internationally. Also, they cannot be shipped domestically overnight (lithium ion batteries can not be shipped via air due to new laws regarding shipping restrictions of batteries) and must be shipped ground. For further information regarding restricted items, please email us at .

Any request by customers to alter their international customs invoices will not be honored. All items shipped internationally must be declared.

RETURN POLICY

All products we sell are sold “AS-IS”, with no warranties expressed nor implied (unless stated otherwise in the product description) and cannot be returned or exchanged unless the item received by the customer is DOA (Dead on Arrival) or damaged during shipping.

Customers must notify us within five (5) days of receiving their defective/damaged product in order to start a return process. (Receipt of product will be based on your tracking number and the time and day that shows your package was delivered to you). DOA items only apply to electrical devices such as an iTaste, iStick, eGo or other similar devices.

For sanitary reasons, and the overall safety of our customers, we DO NOT accept returns of: atomizers, clearomizers, cartomizers, bottled liquid, drip tips, batteries, wick, wire, mechanical mods, rebuildable devices and atomizers and parts for rebuildables and/or atomizers. Therefore, our Return Policy EXCLUDES any products of this kind.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any kind of replacement or compensation for bottled liquids as taste differ for each individual and how the flavor reflects on their palate.

Some products will have minor flaws and is expected during manufacturing. Small nicks or polishing scratches are common on many of the products other companies sell as well as the ones we sell. The only time we can accept a return or exchange an item is if it is defective (meaning non-functioning) or damaged from shipping (meaning parts damaged or crushed due to handling upon delivery).

Customers who try and return cloned items as authentic (items not purchased from us, and not made by the manufacturers we support), will have those items returned to them at their cost, and those customers will no longer be allowed to purchase any items through our website as the issue will be treated as fraud. Items damaged due to user error, misuse or abuse, are NEVER covered under warranty by us, TheVapeMinistry.com™, or the manufacturer’s of the products we sell.

TO START AN RMA OR RETURN PROCESS, PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY:

Email us your name, order number that is associated with the product you wish to return, item you wish to RMA and issues you are experiencing with your product at support@thevapeministry.com. Please include pictures and be as detailed as possible. (Many times we are able to inform customers about how to troubleshoot issues, and a return/exchange is not required).

We will respond to your inquiry within 48 hours letting you know if your RMA has been approved or denied, or if further clarification is needed.

If your request has been approved, please repackage the item(s) including ALL original parts, packing material, instructions, etc. This means that everything must be returned exactly as it was sent to you. Poor repackaging or the return of damaged merchandise could result in refusal of your return and loss of any refund or replacement item. Items MUST NOT have any damage due to user error or abuse and must not have been used.

We will email you a prepaid return label that you can attach to the package which must be shipped back to us immediately by dropping off the package at your nearest post office or FedEx facility to you. (If your item was shipped to you via FedEx, then you will be required to return your item via FedEx). If you do not return the DOA item back to us within 15 days of first notifying us, your RMA will no longer be valid.

We will contact you once we receive your return. Should you have any questions during the RMA process, please email us at support@thevapeministry.com

Replacement item(s) will be mailed back to you once the DOA item(s) have been received by us, inspected and found to be DOA. However, they must be for the same item and the same finish, IF AVAILABLE. If an RMA product is found to be in perfect working condition, the original item will be returned back to you at your own expense.

RESTOCKING FEE

A 15% restocking fee will be charged for all returned items. These fees apply unless the item received by the customer is defective or damaged during the initial delivery or if the item received was incorrect. Used items or items damaged due to user error do not qualify for a return as the products we sell are considered consumable products or products that work with consumable products.

Due to the nature of the products we sell, we cannot accept returns on most items, as they cannot be resold as new or used.

The 15% restocking fee includes packages not signed for, or, accepted during delivery and returned to us by the shipping courier. Any time a package is sent back to us by the shipping courier, we make sure that we contact those customers within 2 business days, if the recipient did not accept the package during delivery. If you, the customer, no longer want the products reshipped to you and would like to cancel the returned order, we can reimburse for the cost of all items in that order less a 15% restocking fee and cost of shipping.

Please be aware, if items are returned incomplete or not in the same condition they were shipped to you, no refund will be given and the package will be returned to you. Customers are always responsible for cost of shipping returned items, unless stated otherwise.

RETURN TIME FRAME

Customers who are asked to return items for RMA issues, return for refund, or replacement, must return items within one (1) week (7 calendar days) from the day we approve any RMA, return, or replacement process (unless stated otherwise). Failure to do so will void your return. Those packages will be sent back to you, or denied for acceptance during delivery.

REFUND POLICY

If you are to receive a refund, TheVapeMinistry.com™ will issue it when the returned item has been received in satisfactory and unused condition. Refunds will be processed within ten (10) business days once we receive the item(s) back from the original customer. Refunds will be applied directly to the method that was used to make the purchase.

Refunds will ONLY be given at our discretion. Items returned for a refund are subject to a 15% restocking fee. (We must approve Items that qualify for a refund before the product is returned).

If the product falls under a category that is on our unapproved return list due to sanitary reasons, those products can not be returned for any reason, regardless if the product is unused.

Usually, refunds can take up to 14 business days to completely process after the refund has been initiated. If you have any questions regarding our return/refund process, feel free to email us at support@thevapeministry.com.
