It is possible to take Paypal?
I know they have an exorbitant 5% fee for you, but customers who do heavy ebay volume would gladly pay a 5% surcharge to use Paypal
PS - other countries that people would trust their glass bottles to be made in would be Japan, Korea, Germany, UK, France, Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Australia, New Zealand

ecig (at least officially), but generally, and especially, anything eliquid.
I like the point you made on brown amber for long time storage. But considering they come in plastic right now, blue cobalt would be a huge step-up. Though, you're right that if JF can offer glass, he may as offer it in the most protective environment possible.
Because WTA juices undergo some extreme chemical processes to extract the WTA's, it is important to realize that for health conscious vapers, GC-MS testing is especially critical in your product more so than typical e-juice that is simply flavoring/PG/VG/nicotine - people who have any scientific background would naturally have a concern about residuals.
Therefore, it would be well worth the investment to get an independent GC-MS analysis done and post it on the website, an analogy would be that, these days, not so many people will buy a car without seeing the CARFAX or similar first. People have become wary of everything these days, and the scaredy-cats are a huge segment of the market! Just sayin!
PS - the decision to go 100% VG as the default carrier for your unflavored WTA juice was a shrewd one, I have a theory that this is a big reason Boba's is so popular, because it is most vaper's first encounter with 100% VG and they love it!
Quick (perhaps stupid) question from a kinda-sorta-not-really-ish newbie: The concentrations offered for your unflavored WTA--are they of nicotine or the WTAs themselves? I'm looking for a low-to-naught nicotine WTA liquid.
Also, I called the number listed on your contact page a few hours ago and just received a return call from a woman (Penny, I presume?) asking who I was. I don't know whether the line cut out or I was hung up on, but the call ended pretty abruptly; I did hear her mention something about Dave, though, but much of what I heard was unintelligible. It seems like the number is for a personal cell phone, though I could be mistaken. I still haven't received a call back.
Not trying to pick a bone with you, as I've been very happy with what your company has to offer, but that experience was a wee bit off-putting. Hopefully you guys can get the phone situation sorted out with an office phone (which you may very well have) and a pre-recorded answering machine.
The easiest would be to own a GC-MS. But that would then mean that the results wouldn't be able to legitimately be posted as it wouldn't be an independent run test. The cost would be much more cost-efficient (obviously) to own one, and even though it would be the cost of a decent used car, it would pay for itself quickly. Though, one would have to be educated in reading the results.
Well, snap, guys! Thanks for the input. I'll definitely look into getting some pure VG to dilute the nicotine down a bit--and some flavor concentrates at Wholecig to give things a delicious kick!
Hey Mr. Mann...
I saw your question on the general WTA discussion thread,
"From what I understand, nornicotine and cotinine are both minor/secondary alkaloids and metabolites of nicotine, but nornictoine is in a fairly high percentage of the famous "5%". I am finding conflicting information about whether nornicotine even has any MAOI effects--most of what I can tell is that it mostly "acts" like nic. I guess what I am asking is that if nornicotine is a "major" minor alkaloid, but it doesn't seem to be all that impressive for the part that we're looking for when vaping WTA, is its presence needed? Or is this the scenario where isolating a specific alkaloid would be too prohibitive and just not worth the hassle?"
Thought this study probably confirms your impression that nornicotine seems to have less synergistic effects with nicotine than the other prevalent minor alkaloids...at least in rats.
