    shipping from the US to SA is 3-5 days. Inside the US is roughly the same, so I reckon 2 weeks or so.

    I'll update the OP with a plan on how to handle the ordering, who will be responsible for the buying etc, and we can discuss.

    The selection at such good prices people have internationally is mind blowing! Having such a hard time choosing what to get whilst keeping within the budget.
    So far wizardlabs seems the cheapest but then it also depends which brands you looking at. Haven't yet done proper research but has anyone figured out who has the best prices for which brands?

    seems some places have great prices but not a wide selection and vice versa.. may have to buy from multiple stores.

    This sounds like a great idea guys.

    Found this site, prices look very good and they have a huge range http://www.bullcityvapor.com.

    What about buying at perfumersapprentice directly? Also found their site online.

    Still open to the idea although no-one really got back to me.
    Have opened accounts with CAP, TFA and some others.

    I would love some stuff from Inawera if we're buying from somewhere that sells it.

    I'm still game. Problem is keeping everything within budget. Went crazy filling my basket at wizard lab last night, then had to narrow my choices down. A lot! The only way to view the bulk sizes on the TFA website is to register, are the prices a lot cheaper than the vendors?

    Maybe focusing on one place like buying from Tfa directly.

    Bit of a spanner in the works.

    Seems there are regulatory restrictions on these type of products which are arbitrarily imposed at customs.

    No longer sure that a group buy is viable, will post updates as I learn more.

    Is this not an opportunity to work with the local food and beverage industry? I am actually going to setup a meet n greet with a local supplier. I was earlier chatting with a lady from creative flavours and she claims also that there are orders for local vapors. They were even willing to help with creating the profiles I wanted. I asked for flavours to be free of certain compounds with they are also willing to do. The only problem I had is that the minimum order qty for any flavour is 1kg and even then it's over a 100 times cheaper than importing a flavour. I understand the guys doing 1:1 clones from recipes on he Internet but could this not also be a viable option?

    By all accounts the local flavours simply aren't as good or as concentrated (read suited to vaping). Vape kings original juice line is made with local concentrates AFAIK. Out of all the flavoring companies world wide there's really only a handful of good ones. No reason why we can't do that here. Just for me personally I want the best ingredients I can possibly get my hands on. I want to know that I'm using the same ingredients the best juice makers are using. For me it just levels the playing field somewhat. That said if there were good safe local concentrates I would definitely pick them up and use them in addition to the international ones.
