FAQ / Frequently Asked Questions
Shipping To A Different Address?
To Ship to a Address other than your Billing Address we do need some sort of Proof of Residency. This can be a License, ID, Invoice, Bill, or Piece of Mail. As long as it has your Billing First & Last Name & the Shipping Address on it.
We have this Policy in place to deter/prevent Fraud. Also, due to the current Climate of this Industry, it is more important than ever to make sure that the PERSON WHO ORDERS IS THE PERSON WHO ACTUALLY RECEIVES THE ORDER.
Please send a email to shipping @ thebestvape.com with the required information listed above before or after Checking out.
How Long Does It Take To Ship?
Order Was Declined But Still Charged?
Your Bank is showing what’s called a “Pending Charge”. This means your Bank / Credit Card Company is holding the funds even though it was declined. Pending Charges will not be transferred to us because the Transaction was not Approved. The Holding of funds period of time can vary and is based solely on your Bank / Credit Card Company. This has nothing to do with us, we do not have any control of the Transaction at this point.
You are NEVER charged for declined Orders. Your Bank or Credit Card Issuer will show the charges as “Pending”, but will eventually & automatically be removed.
When you make a online purchase your Credit Card is not charged at that moment. The Card Processor checks with your Bank or Credit Card Issuer to make sure you have enough available credit to complete the purchase. At that time the Hold is placed, or sometimes called a “Pending Charge”. Then your other information you submitted is checked. If you submitted the wrong Billing Address the Transaction will be Declined, but the Hold / Pending Charge is still there.
This is not unique to us, this is how all Online Transactions work.
Please Note: Some Banks or Credit Card Issuers can take 48 hours or longer to release the Funds or remove the Pending Charges.
I Never Received My Order Confirmation Email, Where Is It?
Order Confirmation Emails are sent automatically and have to be sent. There is no way it cannot send. If it is not in your Inbox please check your Spam / Junk folders. For Gmail please check your ‘Promotions” Tab.
Address Verification Failed?
If your Order was declined and you received the “Address Verification Failed” message than your Order did not pass Address Verification, also known as AVS (Address Verification Service). This is designed to help in the identification of suspicious Credit Card activity. AVS matches the Billing Address Submitted with the Billing Address on file with the Card issuing Bank. For your Order to go through successfully the Billing Address submitted must match what is on file with your Bank / Credit Card Company. Please edit the Billing Address and try to place the Order again.

In short, yes it is. Your Payment Data is stored on Authorize.net’s Secure Servers, not ours. We do not keep or see any of this sensitive information. Authorize.net is one of the largest payment Processing Companies in the World & have been around since 1996.
Do You Ship Discreetly?
Yes we do. There is no indication on the Package of what’s inside. We abbreviate our Company Name on the Shipping Label so there is no way to know who sent it. This is for your Privacy as well as Security.
