Here are some real life success stories of starting a online vape shop:
1. Vape Club ($720K/year)
Jeremy Ong (from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) started Vape Club almost 7 years ago.
I’m Jeremy Ong, I am mostly based in Malaysia and Singapore right now. The business that I’ve built is Vape Club. It started off as an MVP for a vape subscription box business for consumers to discover e-liquids for cheap. Initially, our customers are primarily from Malaysia. Currently, Malaysia only accounts for 1% of our total revenue.
We do about USD60,000 in revenue per month right now - which is a hella lot of money for typical Malaysians. To put things into perspective, the median average household income in Malaysia is USD1,215. Not too bad for a single unmarried 28 year old chap eh?
2. Vape and Juice ($3.6M/year)
David Mason (from Whitstable, England, United Kingdom) started Vape and Juice almost 9 years ago.
I’m the founder of Vape and Juice, an online and offline vaping store, based in the UK. We have a delivery service in Ibiza and do a little international trade, but our primary vape market is in Britain. We started in hindsight, as a terribly put together website in 2013 and sort of fell into the bricks and mortar element of the industry. 7 years later, we are a slightly less bad website, with a chain of franchises.
Our local vape shop business began at £5,000, 7 years later, we turn that over in one day online.
3. CaliConnected ($840K/year)
Nassir Silwany (from ) started CaliConnected over 4 years ago.
Hello, my name is Nassir Silwany, and I am the Co-Founder of CaliConnected, an online marketplace for smoking accessories. After years of experience in the retail industry, my business partner and I decided to launch CaliConnected in April 2018.
The marketplace holds over $40,000,000.00 of in-stock inventory to the end consumer between our warehouse and vendors we have connected to sell on CaliConnected.com. We have done nearly 2 million in lifetime sales, currently averaging $70K/month.
