Thread: Freakin Out Please Help

    Freakin Out Please Help

    I ordered about 2 kilos of snus 10 years ago and it was wonderful. No problems with shipping at all. I thought I might get back into it, so I ordered a kilo from snusdirect.com and it was supposed to be here on Friday the 14th. I figured I'd just place it in my fridge and use it up slowly. But UPS website says it's sitting in a warehouse, so I called them.

    It got snagged by the FDA.

    "Your package is being processed for submission to the FDA or Department of Agriculture. / The package is at the clearing agency awaiting final release."

    I was was looking around online and couldn't understand the legalese but I'm convinced I'm going to jail for not having the proper permit.

    Please help!

    Hi. I guess government slows everything down. I received a recent order here in Illinois in three days from Sweden, by another vendor, and no SWAT teams have knocked my door in. Somebody else here had a short FDA delay, too. hope you see it soon.

    From what I've been told, there was an e-store shipping to the US that wasn't labeling/declaring their packages the way FDA requires. I also heard that in the future FDA is going to have every tobacco delivery opened and inspected from here on out.

    I don't know when/if this is going to go into effect. I did an order from SnusCENTRAL on Wednesday morning and I picked up Friday morning, so I didn't have any slow downs.

    Man we lose more members this way.....at least for 1-5 years

    Just kidding......you'll be fine. If it were illegal the carrier would not have received it from the vender. For now these random delays are the way of life. Expect it to add about 3-5 days to your delivery

    SnusDirect informed me:


    "I understand your worry but whenever the FDA have been looking into a package it has, in our experience, always been released within a few days. They required some additional information about the snus manufacturer, which has been provided to them. It is our recent understanding however that this will happen more and more now and cause slight delays to any tobacco shipment to the US."

    Today UPS says:

    "Y
    our package is being processed for submission to the FDA or Department of Agriculture. / Brokerage released the package. It will be processed through a clearing agency before final release to UPS." 🤤

    Yeah. Heh heh 😰.
    I don't think I'm going to prison anymore. Thanks for helping.

    Now on it says "clearance in progress" and "We've submitted documentation to a Government agency and are awaiting a response. / Brokerage released the package. It will be processed through a clearing agency before final release to UPS."

    I've been wrong lots of times. Lots of times I've thought I was wrong only to find out that I was right in the beginning.

So, business as usual for my quick delivery from snuscentral.com.....ordered Sunday evening, pick up Wednesday morning, nothing out of the ordinary for this one. It should be noted that SC does pay the duty, etc, so that can't hurt. Some web shops leave the extra costs to the end user to fight over with UPS.

    Just a quick question here since you mentioned duties, Do you know about Snus24 and that? Will I have issues with my order?

    Yeah, DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) arrangement they have with UPS might speed things along with SnusCentral and BuySnus. My last orders weren't any slower

    No, snus24 does not pay the DDP and they state that some where on their site, I've read it. I order from them and "pays my money and takes my chances".

    Just found this on the Snus24 Website, Maybe they are sending DDP now?

    You are responsible as the importer of the products and it is your obligation to monitor possible payments such as customs clearance and/or taxes.
    * We are sending with UPS DDP within USA.

    EDIT: I am chatting with their support right now to find out

    EDIT2: Snus24 customer support has confirmed they send DDP for all USA shipments sent through UPS.

    My mistake, maybe.... I know what I read...... Snus24 charges about $ 9 less for shipping to me than SC....I assumed that the difference was the DDP. I have yet to receive a bill for DDP from UPS for any of my Snus 24 orders, three this year, and I have for other vendor's orders in the past......so, for the moment.....legit.

    No problem at all man, I just wanted to make sure people don't freak out..

    If I could find some concrete information on it I figured I would put my two cents in.

    Didn't mean to insult or claim that you didn't see that they don't pay duties. I actually believe you and I assume they must of relatively recently started send DDP. =]
