This is what I used instead of the e-packets I normally do. Yes it will be quicker than free shipping. I wont bother to go that route any more nor have for a long time.



I am in Toronto and my package shipped out on the 24th of March and had it in my hand, in Toronto on April 13th.


E-packets will give you a better tracking than this Canadian expedited but at the moment if my package were any indication, I think it was a bit faster than e-packet but certainly much quicker than the free shipping option.

** I believe if I remember correctly that it was shipped when there was a lockdown there, or they were just coming out of one so that may have accounted for a few extra days of time, possibly.

I'm in Montreal so there's a wee bit of extra legwork to do before my order gets delivered but it shouldn't go over a day.

I'm curious, when it was delivered, did they leave your parcel at the door or in your mailbox? How did that work? And I'm guessing Canada Post completed the delivery?

Edit: Was March 24th the date your order left FastTech or when the tracking goes live? I'm referring to that progress bar at the top of the order details page of an order.

hey mediumcoke .. that's a great name, lol 😆
I'm also in Montreal .. nice to meet you.

canaduh post should always put your parcel in your mailbox or parcel locker 👍

the progress bar on the order is a relatively new FT thing where they guesstimate based on recent shipping times

cheers 😎ðŸŧðŸ’Ļ

It left on the 23rd but on the 24th it went live.

If it is free shipping, I have had one in the past take that long. I think they just get lost somewhere until someone comes across it and sends it on its way. You should have it soon I would imagine.

But if it had tracking, guessing its e-packet? I would ask FT staff to look into it

The story behind this name is pretty funny. The boys had a good laugh when I told them. Nice to meet you

Last time I got vapemail from China was in 2020 and I lived in NDG at the time in an apartment building. I was refreshing the Canada Post tracking page like a maniac since I woke up to a out for delivery notice that day and all of a sudden it said delivered. I run to the mailroom to find it in the corner on the floor, not even in the mailbox. The thing is there are two sets of doors to that building. The first set, that leads you into the building, unlocks via a buzzer. But sometimes people would leave it open to move things. Luckily, I work from home so I ran downstairs and picked it up immediately.

This time it's a bit different. I sent it to my girlfriend's house. Due to my current living situation, I can't receive packages where I live. Thing is she lives in a house in Laval and I noticed delivery guys leave packages at the front door, not so much in the locker. Seeing how I'm expecting mods and the weather is getting warmer, I'd rather they not stay out in the sun or what have you for too long. I don't live far from her house, but it still isn't going down a few flights of stairs to pick the parcel up.

It's complicated this stuff, isn't it?

Amazing, thanks so much for that. Our orders are relatively close enough to each other in date and location (kinda) to reassure me. Cheers!

hey Martin ðŸĪŠ .. nice to meet you 😎ðŸŧðŸ’Ļ

what does it say on canaduh post website tracking?

normally it would enter the country directly into customs.

@mediumcoke the name story sounds interesting ðŸĨģ

yeah, I hear you regarding deliveries .. canaduh post standard protocol is to put the package into mailbox first, and if it doesn't fit then into parcel locker. but if there isn't one or doesn't fit they're supposed to leave card in your mailbox for you to pickup at nearest post office as of the next day. they are not supposed to just leave the package, EVER!

crappy couriers (ups, fedex, dhl, etc) do annoying things like just leaving packages .. and Amazon delivery .. and usually the superintendent will bring them in from the foyer and put them on the floor near the mailboxes.

we have a parcel locker inside our building so that makes canaduh post extra desirable for shipping.

I'm in ville saint-laurent, btw, near Place Vertu 😎
My package contains the Innokin Kroma 217 river wood kit 😍 can't wait!

how does canaduh post deliver packages to your gf?
if she gets mail at communal box down the street then it should be in the parcel locker there, otherwise it might be at her door or card to pickup.

RIP Guy Lafleur!

cheers 😎ðŸŧðŸ’ĻðŸ’Ļ

I agree. 2 months in Canada with no movement is rare even during COVID.

We're in Laval, not far from Saint-Laurent. I'm waiting on an MDura Pro, a Riva 200, a Gen 200, and a Gaur-21. Getting a Profile M, a Fat Rabbit, Blotto Max, Arbiter 2, a bunch of cotton and a bunch of coils. It'll make for a great vapeporn post!

I asked my girlfriend and she said they usually deliver to the door. I think she's confusing Canada Post deliveries with Amazon deliveries. In any case, the day I get the out for delivery notice, I'll park outside her house and tether a connection from my phone to my work laptop.

Say, you wouldn't be a juice chef would you? Or do you know one? Peeps on the Canadian ecigarette subreddit got me freaked out over the proposed vape juice tax. A 120ml bottle that used to cost $20-$25 can end up costing upwards of $60. I used to DIY my own juice but it's messy and I don't feel like getting back into it. I'd rather find a local chef that can provide. That's why I asked.

whew that's a big haul, lol .. enjoy 😎ðŸŧðŸ’Ļ

only canaduh post has the keys to the parcel locker!

careful tho, parcel stalker ðŸĪŠ out for delivery means it was scanned and put on the truck .. for Me that usually means approx 730-830am with delivery around 1230-1pm

120ml (brand name) has NEVER cost less than $40-55 in canaduh .. and 60ml is a ridiculous $20-$30 .. I ordered ejuice almost exclusively from the usa where they understand what reasonable and sale price actually means, lol
it got more expensive since usps was no longer allowed to ship ejuice, but if you get a good sale (holiday) discount and order enough then you can still overcome the savings-crusher of couriers and their bogus $20+ import brokerage fee

do you use Telegram app on mobile and/or pc?
we should chat ðŸĪ”👍 😎ðŸŧðŸ’Ļ
