    Default Anyone else notice the lack of Joyetech products on major websites?

    Discount Vapers, Madvapes, even Mount Baker Vapor have all seriously reduced their stock of "genuine" Joyetech merch. This is obviously because of their 33% price hike, all across the board. But strangely, I don't see a lot of posters here mentioning it. Is there a deeper discussion going on in a subforum somewhere?

    There's a reason you're seeing so many Smoktech and Innokin products on the market.

    Interesting article I found while doing research. It's older, but it's still interesting.

    Actually I would have thought their price hike may have had to do more with Status/image than anything. Maybe they forget we expect different from China.
    What I have noticed more than a reduction is an expansion of available product offerings. Joyetech only has so much to offer so their little corner of the shelf is becoming obscured.
    A Vender carrying a Hugh inventory invested in one product line could find themselves in financial trouble in short order. Today diversification and flexibility is more important than ever. Popular product/quick turn/minimal excess inventory.

    I don't think people care about them, people have just shrugged and moved on. There are many alternatives to Joye products. Take the Twist, you can get an iTaste VV, a Spinner or a clone to cover all the price points. I think Joye have shot themselves in the foot with their price hike. I would have got an eRoll for $42, but for $70, not a chance.

    Joye have a reputation for decently made kit but I don't think it is now worth the premium they are asking, there are people like Innokin providing the same quality at more reasonable prices.

    The price of the evic is ridiculous. I understand you can plug it in to your computer, but why?

    Joytech shot themselves in the foot with a required MSRP/pricefixing and a large minimum order.

    as for the article? i stated at the time of release I thought it was funny he had to "research" information thats offered freely on Ovale's website for everyone to see. they have never hid this information and have openly talked about it over the past few years. yet a few people act like its some kind of conspiracy.

    See, though, before this article I had no idea that Ovale and the other company were the original creators. I remember hearing Ovale on Busardo's reviews but it never clicked until now.

    I know i didnt either at first, but then like with the evic, i started noticing Ovale releases something then suddenly a few months later its a joy branded product, it was during the evic release i went to ovale and dug around, and they take great pride in the fact they are all working together to bring better products to the market and it works. ovale doesnt have to invest in manufacturing and joy doesnt have to invest in R&D just sit and wait for the next cool thing.

    to be fair they don't exactly brag about it but at the same time they never tried to hide it either, so i am amused at these people who had to dig, and talk to high level people for information lol

    imagine the phone call at ovale -hello? yea i heard that bla bla bla,--um yes we do that. bye "click"

    Who was that? - dunno this guy is doing some kind of article on us. sounded like some conspiracy nut

    Doesnt he know thats posted on the website? - guess not haha.
