    Anybody order from NN recently? Put in an sample order for the salts and FB on 12/11 and it still has not shipped.

    Anyone else seeing delays on other orders? Wondering if they are behind from holiday flux or something else.

    I just sent them a question via the online contact option, this order still is not done processing. Its been "Formulation & Packaging" since the 11th.

    I was really looking forward to testing the nic they had and maybe having another supplier, but not if orders really take this long.

    Anyone else seeing this from them, or know if they normally have a long processing time?

    I've placed many orders at NN, so far, it didn't take long, in order to receive my shipping confirmation. To be honest though, I haven't ordered from NN for a long time. However, I would consider your order from not being shipped yet, due to Christmas. It's not just the distributors having the Christmas flux, but the mailing providers as well.

    I ordered a Free ($2.75 postage) Sample from them on Dec. 15-16
    On Dec 23 I received an email notifying me of the USPS Tracking.
    According to the USPS Tracking, On Dec. 21 they received "PRE-SHIPMENT INFO SENT TO USPS, USPS AWAITING ITEM".
    That's the last I've heard. The practice by many sellers of setting up tracking without actually shipping anything...sucks.

    I sure hope I get delivery before the 8-10 years of Nic. stored in my freezers run out.:rolleyes:

    My NN sample arrived in today's mail. :stars2:

    When I ordered it, I did not know how large it would be. Since it came well packaged in a graduated vial, It appears to be 15 mls.

    *Update*

    So the sample finally arrived. Even with the holidays 5 days short of a month for order processing to delivery seems a little long, but maybe this is just me...

    The samples arrived in plastic vials. Never using the salts they have I am a little shocked the smooth salt sample is so dark colored-this may have nothing to do with smell or taste. I plan on mixing some up and sharing if the taste is off.

    Dec 11: Ordered
    Dec 13: Status changed to formulating and packing
    Dec 18: They sent an email saying it shipped (no tracking for 10 days).
    Dec 28: Tracking number finally showed scanned
    Jan 05: Package was delivered.

    The coloration on my 100mg 100% PG sample is similar. Haven't tried it yet.

    I can no longer support Nude Nicotine... after years of vaping Nude Nicotine is one of the single worst vendors I've come across..... the number of complaints about the slowness of their service and their contempt for retail customers has become legend...It seems they are only interested in their wholesale customers, there are so many nic vendors around it doesn't make sense for any DIYer to do bussiness with them.

    I placed an order for a sample a week ago and it's still in "Formulating" status. You'd think they'd want to get those out fast since people ordering samples are potential customers with cash-in-hand ready to place a full order.

    This is only my second experience buying nicotine. First was from HiLiq and it has a strong smell, bad taste and really harsh. Frustrating to say the least as a new DIY'er.

    look at Carolina extract...they are pricey but good....My personal thoughts are that Nude Nicotine focuses on their wholesale customers....their retail customers get sloppy seconds.....they don't even bother responding to e-mails from their retail customers, their attitude seems to be take it or leave it. Vaportek is another great option to NN

    Thanks Pulse. I want to try VT since they seem to get pretty solid reviews and seem to have good prices. Carolina may be great, but I'm too gun shy to pay double right now. Of course, with my luck, VT looks like they may be having supply problems.

    Question for you, if you don't mind: how odorless/tasteless should I actually expect nic to be? The stuff I bought from HiLiq (100mg/ml) was pretty nasty to me. Opened the cap expecting to smell next to nothing and was greeted by a rancid tobacco smell. Made a mix with it and it tasted just like it smelled, was really harsh and overpowered everything.

    The commercial juice's nic is obviously high quality and doesn't affect the smell/flavor. SHould I be expecting the same from my nic?

    That certainly has not been my experience.

    Prior to ordering my sample, I sent 3 separate emails last month, with questions, to NN. I still have them. All were politely responded to by 2 different very helpful folks there. All were within hours and on the same day I asked them. One of their email responses was sent by them time stamped @ 11:01 PM! (CST) (Yep, I retained the NN responses too ;))

    I am not a wholesale customer. In the past I have made 2 orders for their 1 Ltr. bottles of nic. Both were delivered within 10 days of ordering and to my complete satisfaction.

    lucky you I've sent 3 e-mails and never got any reply....and I've never got an order within 10 days ...every other nic vendor I've used and that's like 3 others have got my order out much quicker...Hell I've had people from Carolina Extracts actually call me up to answer my questions...

    How about Xtreme Vaping? Saw some comments about them being the best, but really expensive, on the other forum. I went to check them out and they're actually not expensive at all. Anyone try them?
