Frequently Asked Questions

AGE VERIFICATION

I am unable to verify my age during checkout, how do i proceed with placing my order?

If our system is unable to verify your legal age, you may alternatively send us an email containing an image of a valid government issued ID, and we will manually review your information to verify your legal age in the corresponding state of residence.

You are more than welcome to cover or sensor any sensitive information such as your Driver License or Passport number.

Once your account has been verified, you will no longer be asked to provide ID upon checkout while logged into your Vape King Shop account.

Due to the recent FDA regulations placed last year, we are required by law to check a valid ID in order to verify that you are of age in your state to purchase products from our website.

Please note that we currently use Veratad Technologies Age Verification for all age verification screenings on our website.

ORDER ISSUES

I ordered incorrectly, am I able to change an item in my order?

Unfortunately we are unable to make any item changes to orders once the order has been placed.

Alternatively, we may cancel the order if the package has not yet begun processing with our shipping department.

Please note that once the package has begun processing, the order will no longer be able to be canceled as the package is being prepped for shipment.


Can I cancel my order?

We are only able to cancel orders before the order has begun processing with our shipping department.

Once an order has been processed for shipment, the order is no longer able to be canceled/refunded.

If necessary you may refuse the package at time of delivery.

Once we receive the package back at our facility we will be happy to modify or cancel and refund the order.


I received my package, and an item is missing/incorrect. Can you send me the product that I ordered?

If you believe that an item in your order is missing/incorrect, please contact us immediately, and we will rectify the issue for you.

Please be sure to include your order number, along with images of the invoice and products that you received.

In regards to the invoice, please send us a complete image of the entire document where all text is visible. Upon reviewing the email, we will send you a prepaid return label at no charge to you to return to item back to us in exchange for the correct product.

Please send this information to returns@vapekingshop.com.

Please note that all “Dead on Arrivals” (DOA), Missing, or Wrong Item claims must be reported back to us within 48-hours from the time of delivery.

Please ensure to carefully inspect your items upon receiving the package, as it is the responsibility of the recipient to check the contents of the order within the designated time window, and to notify us if any issues are found.


My order was shipped to the wrong address, what happened?

If you have confirmed that the shipping address listed on your order is invalid/incorrect, you may contact USPS to arrange mail-forwarding, or to arrange pick-up at your local post office. Alternatively, if the order’s tracking history shows that the courier returned your package to the original sender, we will be able to make the necessary adjustments to your order once it is received back at our facility.

Please contact us regarding the matter with your updated shipping address and we will have it on file to update your shipping address.

PAYMENT & PROMOS

I received a “Gateway Error” message when attempting to place my order, and a pending charge was posted to my account. Did my order go through?

If you received a “Gateway error”, and did not receive an order confirmation email, this may be the result of a declined transaction.

A “Gateway Error” indicates that the card used for purchase was declined.

Your card may have been declined due to an incorrect billing address entered at the time of checkout (including the name on the card).

Please note that the billing information must accurately match the information attached to the card, as any discrepancies will result in a failure to place an order.

Additionally, you may verify the billing information on file with your banking institution.

If you see a pending charge on your account, it is important to note that this is not an actual charge.

Since the card was declined, we were unable to receive any payments from you. Therefore, the pending charge is the result of the card issuer holding the funds from your account that were intended to be used for a purchase.

The funds should become re-available to you within 2-3 business days (depending on the processing time of the card issuer).

Alternatively, you may contact your banking institution to inquire about expediting the process to release the funds back into your account.


Can I apply a coupon code after I have placed an order?

Unfortunately, we are unable to apply coupon codes to orders after they have been placed. Please ensure to input your coupon code prior to purchase to be receive any available discounts.


What will happen if an item in my order is found to be Out-of-Stock?

In a rare case that an item that you purchased is found to be out of stock during the fulfillment process a member from our support team will contact you immediately to inquire about a possible substitution.

Please note that in certain circumstances, we reserve the right to issue a refund for an out of stock item and to ship out the rest of the contents of the order in an effort to minimize any further delays.

Alternatively, if the out of stock item greatly affects the rest of the order, we may issue a full refund for the order.

Do the items i purchased from your website include warranty?

We currently offer a 30-day after sales limited warranty for all manufacturer defective items purchased from our website, with some restrictions*.

The warranty period will begin once the package has been delivered in correspondence to the order’s tracking history. Once the item has been in the hands of the customer after the warranty period, the item(s) will be no longer eligible for a refund/replacement.

    I was sent a tracking number, but the order shows that it is still in pre-shipment. What is the status of my order?

    Shipping labels are created prior to the order being shipped, which creates a corresponding tracking number for the package. Once created, you will receive a shipping confirmation email; please note that this does not indicate that the order has been shipped out.

    During this stage in the fulfillment process the order will process through our shipping department in preparation for shipment.

    In the event that an item in your order is unavailable, you will receive an email from our customer service team to resolve any issues. Additionally, the tracking will update once the package is received and scanned by the courier.


    How can I be eligible for Free First Class Shipping?

    We currently offer free first class shipping for all US orders valuing over $50 (excluding applicable tax).

    Please note that the default shipping method is automatically selected as Priority Mail (2-4 business days), therefore requiring a manual selection for the free first class shipping option.

    Once your cart reaches the minimum amount of $50, the free shipping option will be made available for selection.

    Unfortunately, international orders are not eligible for free first class shipping, regardless of the order exceeding the $50 minimum requirement for eligibility.

STOCK & PRODUCT ISSUES
