Vaping Ape began in 2018, with two Melbourne brothers, Leon and Tre, sharing a combined interest in ecommerce and new vaping tricks and trends.
At Vaping Ape's conception, Leon took advantage of his study abroad program in China to establish supplier relations and source the highest quality hardware and juice at the best possible price. Meanwhile, back in Melbourne, Tre organised the paperwork and got the business machinations rolling.
We are still in early stages, balancing V.A. commitments with part time work and education, but we have big plans for our business and hope to be a market leader in Australia's emerging Vape industry within the next 3-5 years.
We always aim to deliver excellent service at fair prices: We understand buying your first piece of serious vape hardware can be quite an investment. Therefore, each of our box mods undergoes a quality control process and is stamped with our seal of approval before shipment.
Nobody likes waiting: One key point of difference from other eccomerce retailers is that 100% of our products are delivered from our Melbourne based, Australian address. We feel that a dropshipping model (where goods are shipped directly from the factory in China) damages the business' ability to create a strong brand and customer relationship; not only does shipping simply take too long, but it also means the seller can't ensure the quality of the product.
