Viva Vape is a website dedicated to selling vaping products to the general public with free shipping. This is predominantly a dropship business, so little to no inventory is ever needed and fulfilling orders takes a couple of clicks and it’s done. The only inventory that is kept is VIVA brand products in the form of disposable e-cigarettes and e-liquid, however this product line could be expanded at any time. Having a house brand allows for a much higher profit margin on those products because of bulk pricing whereas drop-shipped items will have a lower margin but without the need for a bulk commitment and on top open the opportunity to sell the products brand in retails store has have been in the past years,all these provide a melange of sales options plus the trend of traditional tobacco smokers turning to vaping in an effort to kick the habit, give this sales sector considerable staying power.
About the VIVA brand
The VIVA brand that is included with the sale of the website was not just slapped together on the back of a napkin, but came about as a result of a long process of hard work and trial and error. The logo and packaging was designed by a team of graphic artists and refined to its current form over several iterations, the e-shishas were sourced by testing sample products from dozens of manufacturers, eventually finding one that met all the desired criteria for price, style, quality, flavor, and ease of working with them, the flavors chosen for the 5-pack cases and singles were whittled down from about a hundred flavors using focus groups to determine the most popular flavors, There is also a companion line of e-liquids provided by a reliable manufacturer. As of this moment, the VIVA brand inventory includes e-shishas and e-liquids, but could easily be ramped up to offer a much wider array of products, and to anyone with a modicum of marketing ability, VIVA could serve as the launching ground for a dominant brand
