Shipping & Return Policy
PACT ACT Shipping Changes 2021
USPS Vape Shipping Ban Oct 21st
We Have Secured Alternative Shipping Methods To Many States Within the Continental U.S. and will Update as Reliable Carriers become Available
The United States Postal Service (USPS) has published its final ruling, and will no longer ship vaping products as of October 21, 2021. All orders that are currently out for delivery with USPS were shipped prior to that date.
The government document that we are speaking of can be viewed at this URL https://public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2021-22787.pdf
ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING CURRENT & FUTURE SHIPPING COVERAGE, SIGNATURE REQUIREMENTS, AND TRACKING.
We have secured reliable shipping for many states through a trusted network of shipping carriers. The remainder of the states will be published once we know the full list. The bad news is the shipping rates will most likely increase slightly compared to the USPS rates. Shipping time frames are expected to be 2 to 3 days longer than current delivery times.
Shipping After USPS Shut Off: We plan to continue to work hard to be able to provide shipping everywhere that legally allows vape products. Vaping Goat has a dedicated team working tirelessly on securing shipping carriers and platforms in order to make this transition as seamless as possible.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU DO NOT CURRENTLY GET MAIL OR PACKAGE DELIVERY AT YOUR RESIDENCE OR WORKPLACE, YOUR ORDER WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR PICKUP AT A USPS POSTAL FACILITY. OUR CARRIERS ARE UNABLE TO DELIVER TO PO BOXES.

Coverage will be limited in the initial rollout, and we may not be able to serve our entire customer base due to logistical constraints or lack of regional carrier service. However, as the carriers’ coverage expands, we will make sure shipping services are made available as soon as possible. Shipping options, costs, and coverage areas will be made available during the checkout process. We will be adding a zip code checker to find out if delivery is available in your location.
Orders with prohibited items will be removed and canceled from the order, subject to the entire order being canceled and refunded while the rest of the package will be processed normally.
All packages will be Adult Signature Required parcels (21+) and MUST be signed for. Drop-off is not available!
Due to the amendments to the PACT Act, all vape mail packages will require an adult signature (effective March 27, 2021), which will greatly increase shipping costs. In accordance with Federal Law, we will not be able to ship to PO boxes. Once USPS ceases to ship ENDS (all vape including hardware) we will transition to alternative carrier solutions and will continue to service our customers in the continental U.S utilizing a network of local and regional carriers to ensure that packages arrive quickly,
We’ll continue to provide tracking for your packages so you know when to expect your mail.
There is a 24 – 48 hour processing time for all orders, with most orders sent out for delivery within 24 hours during business weekdays. We strive to ship orders out as quickly as possible. After the processing period, a tracking email is automatically sent to the email on the order to confirm that your package is ready for shipment and the information has been sent to the carrier. All shipping transit times are estimated delivery times set by the logistics company and may be handled by different carriers depending upon your location. Please be advised that we are unable to service some areas. Incorrect addresses or missing apartment or suite numbers will result in delays.
Please DO NOT use the address or your local post office as ONLY USPS can deliver to a PO, RR, HC box, and all USPS postal facilities, This will result in order cancellation. ONLY USPS can deliver to a USPS PO BOX and post office.
We process orders Monday – Friday, excluding Holidays. We do not process orders on Saturdays, Sundays, and U.S Federal Holidays. All orders placed between Friday evening through Sunday will be shipped the following business day excluding postal Holidays and natural disasters.
We ship orders in their entirety and your shipment may be delayed due to “out of stock” items or refunded for any missing products that will cause a delay of more than a day. Unfortunately, we are unable to ship back-ordered items separately due to the additional shipping costs.

Carriers occasionally make the mistake of misrouting a package. Unfortunately, these errors are out of our control and we are not responsible for errors or delays by local carriers.
