Sounds like Smok and the people who make the Russian would be a match made in heaven. I'm still irked I missed the days of being able to get the Russian 91% for around the 60 dollars US mark. Then the manufacturer threatened to stop selling to the site that was offering that price and they had to go straight to the just sub 100 US mark. Correct me if I'm wrong but the maker gets paid when the retailer buys their inventory not at the point of sale to the end customer. On the one hand it's almost laudable that some makers try to protect their distribution network through the fine art of MSRP fixed pricing at the retail end. However as I am a retail customer not a retailer it would seem to me that if vendor x is a less than normally greedy then the other retailers should be encouraged to rethink their profit margins. Now I am not saying I want Wally world to end up the only retailer left on the planet so how about splitting the difference. In the case of the Russian as an example split the difference and insist it sells at around the 75 dollar mark and voila your approved vendors get to dip their beaks a bit deeper and the end user gets flowers and a kiss on the cheek before being bent over the nearest available horizontal surface ... just sayin'.

Smok were the first crowd to insist on fixed pricing and then others followed suit.
Joytech, Innokin and Rainbow Heaven now insist on RRP.

Smok products tend to be fairly shoddy most of the time - their RRP made it very easy for me to decide not to buy their products.

The price on the smok stuff is actually really good compared to uk vendors. Carry on selling them. Thanks

I am a manufacturer as well (not for vaping things), and I do get why they have a MAP. It wouldn't be fair to their other retailers if they don't have one. But also if their wholesale prices are high enough, they don't evne need a MAP as FT wouldn't be able to offer things at a loss.

But if it is too expensive, just move on and buy something else? If they can't sell at that price they will soon come down. I don't get they hype about their products. Not looked into their mods, but their tanks are all some kind of clone of something else, which is usually cheaper available elsewhere.

It's just like designer watches. There is no reason for them to be so expensive, other than the name. You cna get a perfectly decent watch for cheaper as well.
