    I recently ordered from AsiaVape because I was convinced by their 95% success clearing Thai customs. And I lost 188$ because customs seized my order. My advice to all of you after my lost, don’t trust AsiaVape!

    Sorry to hear about this but TH Customs is always a crap shoot...sometimes you get lucky & sometimes you don't. You can't blame the supplier for that.

    We've all had problems with TH Customs...that's just part of vaping in Thailand if you opt to import gear instead of buying locally.

    Hi Siam Diesel,
    I only blame AsiaVape for making me think that the probability of clearing TH customs is so high 95% as they claim. They say less than 5% vapes orders will be seized.
    Was my first experience but I learnt the harsh way, believing AsiaVape with their 95% success clearing customs.

    @Miguel - I understand but even with a 95% success rate, 5 out of 100 orders get seized. You were just unlucky this time.

    I've always tried to make multiple purchases with low(ish) values so if one gets seized, the pain isn't as great.

    I don’t think that 95% clearing TH customs it’s a true fact. As you mentioned before if everyone had problems with TH customs that percentage is not 95% as they claim. It’s just a catch to convince customers that is not that bad. But as we know it’s not that easy.

    A risk for importing anything vape wise, no matter what anyone says, that 95% is probably true for small low coat items but the 5% is for biggish orders which are more likely to get checked..

    Get to know the in country sellers who have the stuff here....Big is listing a few more things more now so that's good...

    Hi V,
    I agree I’ve learned my lesson the harsh way so no more trying to import.
    I thought I would be save with that 95% claim but the only true fact is that you are never save so that’s why I wanted everyone to know incase they get tempted by AsiaVape or other dealers that try to convince them in one way or another that is not such a low risk to import.
    Could someone recommend me a good in country seller, please?
