Dominant Vapor was founded with a focus on affordability, safety, fast shipping, and superior customer service. With the implementation of FDA deeming regulations on 8/8/16 and over the next 3 years, we have had to make some changes.
The first major change is in our Bonus Offers. The FDA has prohibited providing free samples, even with a minimum purchase. While they have not stated whether they would accept a minimum charge or what the minimum charge should be, our legal council has determined that the rates they are available for currently ($0.99 for 30 ml, $1.49 for 50 ml, and $2.99 for 100 ml) is the most discounted price that we can provide for the sample bottles without risking the possibility of the FDA determining that the charge is to low and therefore "free". A determination like this by the FDA would certainly put us out of business practically overnight.
The second major change is a small price increase (9-10%). The regulatory burden has introduced an entirely new set of costs that we have never had before. While we did not want to increase costs because we do focus on making our products affordable, we were forced to implement an increase in prices in order to ensure that we can serve our customer base for at least the next three years. We will do everything we can to remain in operation beyond that point, however the cost has not been determined to get our products approved for sale after 2019.
We believe that with these changes, we can continue to provide the same service that you have come to expect from Dominant Vapor. While many customers have expressed that they were expecting greater changes, we hope that these changes will not cause any of our customers any more burden than they expected as a result of the deeming regulations and we look forward to serving your vaping needs over the coming years.
