    Placed my first order with FastTech 8/16. When they confirmed it supposedly will ship on 8/21 with 8-10 days to delivery.

    Is that typical from them for in stock items... about 2 weeks from purchase to receipt?

    I am into flashlights and knives so I have been ordering from Chinese dealers for years. In general, expect to wait about a month give or take from any Chinese dealer. If you get it sooner, great but don't expect it. Place your order and just forget about it. If after a month you don't have anything, then start checking in to it.

    2 weeks+- few days of shipping time is normal for fasttech. Fastest shipping was done in 8 days, slowest took about 3 weeks.

    Thanks for the info folks. Nothing coming I need tomorrow, just had no idea about them. I am not paying for the shipping so have to live with it.

    The things i order from FT are the things I don't need quickly or I don't mind waiting for.
    If I want something quick I will use local vendors.

    I ordered a Vamo with 2 Vivi Novas and some heads and it took a little over 2 weeks for mine to come in. Fasttech always takes a while.

    They make you think, that the shipping is free. :) Of course they get the money somewhere else to cover the losses.But hey, they provide excellent service with fast free shipping (2 weeks) for orders over 15 $ i think and for really small extra fee under 15 $. Hurray!

    I am in pain , hehe, when i have to buy from other chinese vendors cause 1 month delivery time.And in some rare cases you dont even get the package. :( Not by fasttech :)

    My FT orders average 10 days form the day order to delivery but, it is from China and, that might be as long as 30 days. I've had other packages from other vendors in China take as long as 45 days, but there was a slight customs snafu on that one.

    I think I got lucky on my order. Ordered on the 13th and received on the 17th. I'm in North Carolina.

    Still way better than a package I got from Eastern Canada recently. The $42 worth of small items fit in a very small padded envelope, cost me $18 shipping and a 8-9 day wait to get here. Supposedly Expedited USA shipping, the cheapest choice I had I think.

    I've bought over $1100 in gear the last 3+ months, all but the above from US suppliers. Communication has been from excellent to what the h_ll is communication... shipping has been from free to ridiculously high... the time to receive from amazingly fast to I can almost walk to your business in less time (hmmm, walk from the desert to the east coast? LOL). So I've had exceptional customer service, OK CS and the other kind. The best know who they are, they've got 2-3 or more additional orders already... a few of the others I'll never buy from again. Just more of the learning curve when you are a noob at vaping.

    I've been thinking about ordering from FastTech but something just keeps me from doing so. Perhaps I'll place a small order and hope for the best.

    I have 2 orders in process now. Today is the fifth day after they showed "Shipped" and USPS site says that they are still in Hong Kong.

    I think the longest ship time for me was about 2 weeks. The shortest was 8 days. Generally, if I order "in stock" merchandise, it's at my door 10 days from the day I place my order. I always order at least $15 worth of stuff to get the upgraded shipping.

    I agree with the average of 10 days, to NC. There are exceptions like my last order where they were out of stock for 1-1/2 weeks. Their customer service is pretty good if you go through their ticket system.

    Update for those keeping a running tally....

    Placed order on 8/16... Fast Tech finally gave it to Hong Kong postal today, so 7 days just to get it started on the way from them.

    I placed an order on the same day with them and mine is STILL sitting in the Hong Kong Air Shipping Hub.
