About a month ago I tried starting an online store selling Electronic Cigarettes. I bought the domain name www.ElectricDrag.com
, I set up a store, bought some inventory, and started marketing. Everything was going ok for the first couple of days I even made a few sales, but I pretty quickly discovered that its really hard to find someone who is willing to process credit cards for E-Cigs. After paypal closed down my account I attempted to open a merchant account at several places and got denied each time and each time I was explained that its practically impossible to start a new merchant account right now to accept payments for Electronic Cigarettes.
I am left with a little bit of inventory, which I can't sell on ebay because even ebay doesn't allow the sale of Electronic Cigarettes. So I'm going to try and sell it here for BTC. This is actually a great example of how awesome BTC is for industries such as these. In order for me to set up a merchant account for Electronic Cigarettes I would have to jump through hoops like a trained circus animal, pay tons of fees, go through a long and painful application process, and still probably get denied at the end. Or I can start accepting BTC as payments today.
I also fully plan on reinvesting any funds I get from the sale of these E-Cigs back into the BTC community. I plan on hiring someone from this forum to help me design another website to sell Electronic Cigarettes, that will only accept BTC as a form of payment. I'm also working on another e-commerce project that will also only accept BTC as a form of payment. Summary: I'm selling E-Cigs leftover from an online business I had, the funds from the sale will be reinvested back into the BTC community.
First... The Sales PitchWhy E-Cigarettes?
There are many benefits to ditching your regular old tobacco cigarettes and switching to a cleaner electronic cigarette. Electronic Cigarettes have...NO TAR
NO CARBON MONOXIDE
NO ASHES or BUTTS
NO BAD SMELL or BAD BREATH
NO AIR POLLUTION
NO DANGER OF SECOND HAND SMOKE
We've all seen as the price of tobacco has sky rocketed over the past couple of years. Smoking is becoming more and more of a financial stain for the average smoker, with a pack of cigarettes selling for as much as $10 in some places. Electronic Cigarettes on the other hand are a much cheaper solution. After your initial investment in a starter kit, you will be able to purchase the equivalent of 10 packs of cigarettes for only .5 BTC! On top of that the starter kit already comes with 10 cartridges which is the equivalence of 10 packs of cigarettes!
Electronic Cigarettes are also more convenient than tobacco cigarettes as there are less restrictions as to where they can be smoked. In most states there are no restrictions and Electronic Cigarettes can be used ANYWHERE, even indoors! They are so convenient that you can even use them in the shower!
The reason that the law is so lenient on the use of Electronic Cigarettes could be explained by the greatly lowered risk of second hand smoke. The American Association of Public Health Physicians has come out in support of Electronic Cigarettes and they believe that the risk of second hand smoke is significantly decreased by Electronic Cigarettes.
Second... The ProductsStarter Kit
This starter kit comes with EVERYTHING you need to start using your E-Cigarette the day it arrives!

I have many of these in stock and there's a store about 15 minutes away from me that sells these so I'm able to offer a wide variety of flavors that I can pick up for you.

If you are interested in purchasing an E-Cig/Cartridges from me just click one of the "buy now" buttons.
All of the buttons are the same in this thread and they will all give you a price of 3 BTC, obviously you can adjust that amount based on what you're buying I just figured that the average purchase will be a 3 BTC starter kit. If you are making a purchase that is not 3 BTC then there will be a 24 hour waiting period before the payment clears because MyBitCoin takes 24 hours to process a payment if the amount of the payment isn't the same as the amount programmed in the payment button. If you prefer not to wait 24 hours send me a PM and I will reply with a payment address to which you can send the payment directly. Chances are that I will get back to you within a few hours unless I'm sleeping.
BitCoin address to which you sent payment:

Thanks everyone for looking. If you have any questions/comments feel free to PM/Email me or just post in this thread.
