The craze for e-cigarettes has grown rapidly among teenagers. According to a CNN report, approx 2.22 million middle and high school students in the USA currently use e-cigarettes.
Although buying a vape requires Adult Signature at the delivery time, how many underage students buy vaping products?
Is there any vape site that doesn’t ask for ID? Or is there any vape delivery company that doesn’t require an adult signature?
I’ll answer everything in detail. Just don’t skip this article!
Is There Any Vape Site That Doesn’t Need ID?
When I asked this question in vaping community, I found many online vape stores don’t ask for ID verification at the time of order placement.
They send the parcel through local courier companies that don’t require an adult signature at the delivery time.
Afinix is the most popular online vape store that don ask for ID or age verification. However, other popular online stores like eBay, Aliexpress, Ufogs, Eonpod, Fasttech, etc., don’t require ID verification on vape products.
What Are The Cheapest Online Vape Stores?
The internet is full of scams and fraud. So, you should always verify the authenticity of any online store before placing an order.
Here are some of the best and cheap online vape stores that deliver across the USA and Canada.
What Is The Legal Age For Vaping In The USA?
US Congress passed Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking (“PACT”) Act 2020 recognizes all sorts of e-cigarettes and vaping items as tobacco. It requires age verification when a parcel is shipped with UPS and USPS.
In many countries, the legal age to buy vaping items is 21 years; however, some US states have also legalized e-cigarettes for 18 years. You must check the legal age for vaping according to state and country.

Note– Any legislative amendment can change these laws. So, you should always check the current vaping law of your state from the state government websites.
If you’re not underage and looking for an online vaping site that doesn’t require ID verification, then Afinix is the option. However, I always recommend buying only from trustworthy stores that ship original products.
Warning: If you’re an underage kid, then don’t buy vaping products online or offline. It will help if you read the Tobacco 21 (T21) legislation for punishment and charges.
