Fruity Flavored Electronic Cigarettes Into The Ban Countdown 30 Days! 13 Famous Brands Turn To international Market,Licensed Stores Closed Down
September 1 news, e-cigarette regulatory transition period will end on September 30, electronic cigarette mandatory national standards and electronic cigarette management methods will officially take effect on October 1, today officially ushered in the fruit flavored electronic cigarette domestic ban countdown to one month point in time.
In other words, after the 30 days in September, the domestic electronic cigarette market will be completely reconfigured.
There are 3 most central changes after October 1th.
First, all participants in the e-cigarette market must operate with a license, including the supply chain, brands, tobacco companies and retail stores, and operating without a license will be regarded as illegal business. At the same time, all market trading entities must trade and record in the national unified electronic cigarette trading management platform, whether it is the production side and wholesale side of the production and wholesale transactions, or wholesale and retail stores, or export to overseas, all transactions must be uploaded with credentials in the platform.
Undocumented small factories and small brands will be completely eliminated from the compliant electronic cigarette race field.
Second, fruit-flavored e-cigarettes, open e-cigarettes and nicotine-free e-cigarettes will all be removed from the domestic market.
In the electronic cigarette management approach has long been clear that the above three types of products will be banned in the country, due to the current regulatory transition period, you can still operate, but once October 1, the above three types of products directly shut down, the market will only allow the circulation of tobacco flavored products through the national standard technical examine with the child lock.
Third, the retail stores will usher in a period of transition pain.
After October 1, after the drop of the fruit flavor, store sales are likely to plummet by more than 80%, many stores’ tobacco flavors basically sells a box a week, if the monthly rent exceeds 5,000 yuan, and need the shopkeeper to watch the store of electronic cigarette stores, the stores may usher in a tide of closures.
From the current taste of the national standard products of each electronic cigarette brand, it is not difficult to smoke, but also not good to smoke, there is a poem depicted aptly: gentleman's friendship is as light as water.
Store owners face how to persuade old users to switch to tobacco-flavored products, as well as the development of new tobacco-flavored users, plus the brand has now lost control of the retail stores , so it is difficult to expect the brand to have any support.
Store owners are currently facing the biggest pressure from clearing inventory.
However, recently popular in the circle of friends how to clear inventory paragraph, shopkeepers can refer to.
Store owners can place the major brands of national standard products to the store, not to sell, only to try smoking, the user is likely to suddenly to your store fruit flavors both eyes, immediately open the stockpile mode.
This is called reverse bandwagon.
However, this can also backfire. The harder the inventory is cleared, the fewer times the store will be visited in the coming months.
After all, the users stored a few months of fruit flavor, only few people would try tobacco flavor.
But not to clear inventory will directly result to compensate, and if the transaction after October, once found to be illegal, light to face fines, heavy you’d get handcuffed.
