Hello and thanks for considering sending your item over for review.
Generally, I do 5 to 6 reviews per week, I am sent about 6 to 10 new items in for review every week, due to this the backlog for review is long. PLEASE NOTE: I do NOT plan out the queue further than 1 week in advance. The review queue changes on a weekly basis and whatever is in the queue (and especially how long the queue is) dictates what comes up for the review the following week.
I will no longer review devices that have been out in the retail market for more than a month at the time of being contacted. Reviewing an atomiser or device that’s already been out for more than a month at the time of being contacted is pointless as there will already have been many other reviews of the device made.
If the item is being shipped from outside of the UK, any customs charges must be paid in full by the sender before I start the review. If you are not sure about customs form filling for international shipping to the UK, please let me know and I’ll walk you through it.
As an independent and now self-employed reviewer, I am here to test the tank or device out for usability… this means that even for the “Jump the queue” fast track package at least 4 days of testing the device will still take place even for the quickest package, you will not be able to get a review out of an item on the Vaping With Vic channel within 4 days.
Please note that I am not accepting e-liquid reviews.
There are three separate reviews “packages” when it comes to the order that the reviews are done…
Package 1 – Free Queue (Free Package)
The standard package is a simple one, just send the item in for review. It will be added to the review queue and when its turn comes up, it will be reviewed on the channel. Please note the standard package (which is the way I’ve been doing the reviews for 4 years now) is on a basis of reviewing the items in the order they came in. Items that are sent in for the normal queue are subject to how many companies have paid for a Jump The Queue package, which means it may take up to a month to even 2 months before the item is reviewed. The free review package does not guarantee your item will be reviewed, especially if the item is in a market segment which is already flooded with similar items (mesh stock coil tank etc etc).
Package 2 – “Jump the queue” – Standard (Two Week)
The standard jump the queue package means that from the date your item arrives here, it will be reviewed on the second week after payment has been received, essentially skipping the main queue after a normal 1 week of testing and being added to the top of the queue for the following week’s review. The “Jump the queue” package is a good way for a new company to get their item reviewed sooner, rather than having to wait in the normal queue.
Please note you are NOT paying for a favourable review. You are paying to have the review simply done quicker. A Package 2 review will still have an honest, independent review in the same format I do all my reviews.
Package 3 – “Jump the queue” – Fast Track (One Week)
The full fast track package is the quickest option for getting a review out on the channel. Instead of the normal 1 week (5 to 7 days) of testing, I will fast-track the test and have the item tested in 4 days, essentially putting that device through a quicker test phase for general usability. The item will then be reviewed on the 5th day after payment has been received. So if the item arrives on a Monday… it will be reviewed on the Friday or Saturday of the same week. This is the quickest review option available on the Vaping With Vic channel.
Please note you are NOT paying for a favourable review. You are paying to have the review simply done quicker. A Package 3 review will still have an honest, independent review in the same format I do all my reviews.
