    I placed an order with Gearbest on 8-9-16 and they shipped it on 8-11-16. It is now as i'm posting this 9-7-16 and still havnt received my order. Now gearbest says it will take no longer than15 to 25 once shipped,well its over the 25 day limit and i am really pissed. This is the longest i ever had to wait for vape mail in the 5 years ive been vaping. I contacted their customer support and they were no help. They told me there is many reasons for a delay in shipping, but i thought thats why they say 15 to 25 days. Thats a 10 day window in case anything happens. And i made sure there was no problem on my side like wrong address and i also checked the post office in case it was there. I contacted them again and they say the package was shipped and im in good hand. Ha! Sorry thats not good enough. I should of received my package already! You think they would offer me something like a refund or credit because of the long delay but of course they didnt.

    Gearbest is the worst, fasttech, 3fvape and heavensgift are much better options. The problem with gearworst is they don't give you an option to select epacket like the others, thats the best shipping option. My last 2 packages from gearworst took nearly a month to receive. Never ordering from those hacks again unless they give the buyer the option to select epacket service even if you have to pay an extra $1 or 2.

    I'm still waiting on my last 3fvape order; no better than Gearbest. Package has been sitting in Beijing for 3 weeks now after I received my tracking number. If it ever gets to the U.S. (waiting on the boat that probably sank) then our gooberment will drool over it for a long time.

    What an effin' mess we find ourselves in and where did we store the gallows?

    Just a suggestion when buying from them, make sure it comes (ships) from the Cali or NY Whse which will take under 5 days to receive. From China you always have that delay possibility.

    I hate Gearbest so much! Nothing is worth waiting as long as they take. I rather fast tech! 2- 3 weeks no matter what. They also use this weird slang for taking too long.. I bought the Goliath v2 and waited nearly 3-4 months for it. I know your pain.

    Always bought from the NY or Cali Whse with receiving under 5 days. From the China Whse yes your going to wait at least 2 to 3 weeks if your lucky enough. Yes many horror stories of waiting 3 months from China.

    Yup, orders can be slow.

    Slower if you have batteries in the order.

    You have 45 days with paypal to dispute charges. RELAX. When it's 43-44 days in and you still haven't gotten the package, THEN file a dispute and don't sweat it.

    I tried to order an OG Joyetech VTC form them. Wound up filing a dispute through PayPal with them after they begged me not to. I've had nothing to do with them since.

    Fasttech has always done right by me though. Just make sure what you order is labeled "In Stock" or "Ships Next Day." It cuts down on the wait time.

    The US warehouse's are fine if they happen to have what you're after. They have a grand total of 18 vape items in the NYC and 6 in the LA. From China it's a roll of the dice. Some folks report good experiences - Joe for one, he keeps posting the deals - and others, not so much.
