    Those of you that have ordered from this company, how long did it finally take to get to you? I realize coming from overseas will take a lot longer but it's been 3 weeks so far and I'm kind of wondering how long I might have to wait. I'm in Minnesota.

    If you order from China. .. doesn't really matter which company.. plan for delivery to take 2 to 6 weeks.... plan for tracking to be days behind reality..... item may deliver before track shows leaving China.

    Fasttech is a good vendor...
    Just slow.

    I've placed lots of orders from FT and have always received what I ordered. The time it took to actually get to me definitely varied though. Depended on some of these factors: if items I ordered were shown as being In Stock or not; what shipping method I chose; if any holidays were going on when I ordered or right after I ordered; how long it sat in Customs after arriving in the US, etc. I've had packages take as little as 9 days to get to me and as long as 26 days to get to me.

    I've had good experiences ordering from Fast Tech. Usually took 3 - 6 weeks. I expect that when I order, so I only order gear that I won't need within a week or so. I order replacement coils, spare clearomizer tanks, and rebuildable tools from Fast Tech.

    Sometimes Fasttech gets my order to me on the East Coast in 8 days. Others, it might take 3 weeks. I just hit the update page here and there and find out where my package is. At first it will give me a message that the order is being processed. Sometime later it will suddenly tell me it's in California. When that happens I usually get it in several days.

    You never know with standard shipping. When it hits the U.S. it might go ground and take a week or more to cross over to your area or it might get put on an airplane and cross the U.S. in two days. Tracking numbers are your friend, but the updates can be sporadic.

    As fast as 8 day. As slow as 45 days. Sometimes it takes longer to leave customs and be delivered than to get to the US.

    The weird one for me was a transposed tracking number. I watched the "54" arrive at someone else's home. A couple days later my "45" arrived at my home. Phwew.

    It really varies, but if I'm not willing to wait 6 weeks for an item at least, I don't order from Fasttech (or any Chinese vendor) because it will sometimes arrive faster but it varies a great deal. There is a bit of randomness concerning which port it arrives at and also how long the wait in customs can be.

    Also, if you've ordered 3 weeks ago your item was LIKELY shipped before the last week Chinese holiday, although if it wasn't shipped before that date, you may have a slightly longer wait.

    Good luck,

    I also order from Minnesota. I generally give FT about 6 weeks. The F is ironic imho. There is a tracking feature for FT orders so you can at least make sure they actually sent the thing. They can take two months to tell you something is permanently out of stock, so it’s a good thing to watch

    Thanks for all the replies. My items were shown as shipped just a day or two after the order so they're somewhere between here and there. If I knew of somewhere in the states to get pre coiled wires with wicks, I wouldn't wait this long. Even Ebay only has them from China. I'm surprised somebody doesn't buy them by the thousands and then repackage them in smaller quantities and resell on Ebay for a hefty profit.

    I have done Dozens and Dozens (and Dozens) of orders from FT.

    And on Average, I get them between 10 ~ 14 Days. Once and awhile a Day or so Earlier. Sometimes a Day or so Later.

    But I Always spring for the Extra 50 Cents or whatever to have them Shipped using USPS e-Packet. Because the Default shipping can take Forever.

    Anything between a week to two months, on average what zoiDman said, 1-2 weeks. Keep in mind their shipping is ultra cheap so I imagine they buy empty space on planes, if unlucky that can take a while.
    Also US customs might be flooded with checking packages from China at the moment.
    You mean with the wick already installed? Truthfully I wouldn't buy that from China.
    If you have trouble inserting wicks there's a few manufacturers that do pre cut wicks where one end is wrapped like the tip of a shoelace (COTN, unicorn hair, vape lace etc).
    That would give you the possibility to order coils from places like this
    Advanced Vape Supply
    and you'd have everything in probably under a week.

    e-Packet is usually 8 to 12 days from Fasttech to here. Has been as long as 5 weeks though

    Don't order anything from them with internal battery, it goes Singapore Post and takes from 45 days to never arrives

    I have only ordered from Fasttech twice. Both times were for items I could not find in the US. If I can find what I want here I will order it here. It isn't worth it to me save a couple of dollars and then wait weeks to get it.

    You can watch your packages progress through the fasttech app or the web page.

    Now, since you've made the order, make a 2nd order for the same thing. Get your stock up of that item you're worried about.

    I buy a certain coil (several certain coils really) that I just love. At $2.59 for a pack of 10, I can't beat it, while also ordering 3 packs at a time for an even lower price. I have over 70 coils of this type and don't worry about replacing or running out of them!

    I placed a couple $3 orders to test the waters first. If I like what I ordered, I'll place an order that will last me 20 years, just in case.

    If you buy any item with a quantity of over 20, contact Noel via their ticket system. Tell him what it is you want to order and the sku number. He will provide an additional discount on top of the one given by the system when you order 5+ of same item. It may not be much, but it can add up if you buy in bulk. Shipping will also be free.
    He will also provide you detailed instructions on what he wants you to do on your end.
    Good luck.

    I'm in NZ. Have been ordering extensively from Fasttech for 11/2 years now. From the day they ship it usually takes 10 days.
    Its not true that Fasttech are slow. When I order from the US or Europe, it also takes about 10 days.

    WE are spoiled here in the US. LOL We have vendors who ship the same day as ordered so people have gotten used to that kind of treatment. They forget that China is half a world away.
