Hello and thanks for considering sending your item over for review.  What follows is general guidelines when it comes to what I review.

There are two separate reviews “packages” when it comes to the order that the reviews are done…

Package 1 – Normal Queue

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.  Sometimes the review queue can be over 30 items, which means there will be another 30 items before your item that will need to be reviewed first.

Package 2 – “Jump the queue” – Standard

The standard jump the queue package means that from the date your item arrives here, it will be reviewed on the second week after arrival, essentially skipping the main queue after a normal 1 week of testing and being added to the top of the queue for the following weeks 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

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 arrival.  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.

More information…

1: Generally, I do 5 to 6 reviews per week, and it may take up to 4 weeks (or more) for your item to be reviewed due to the current review queue if you choose “Package 1”.  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.

2: 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.

3: 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.

4: Please note that I am not accepting e-liquid reviews.

5:  As an independent 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.
