Very nice! Any good deals? We have a category in the forum for Vendors..
Would be great place to post any deals you might have... I've been thinking about purchasing from a vendor out of west Borneo recently and I think it is a great thing to see some Indonesian vendors coming to our forum

Wumpmom, we have rules for the protection of our visitors and forum members. We ask that vendors show themselves trustworthy and have safe ordering practices before we let them post ads on this forum.

I deleted the big ad for Eastern Initiative because he didn't follow our rules. He can apply and prove himself worthy of being approved here, just like all the Approved Vendors who took the time and effort to become approved already.

Best regards,

Maybe I am niave, but I was under the assumption that maybe since he is from Indonesia maybe he doesn't understand how the forum works. But kratom comes from Indonesia so maybe he had some good deals. But it's good to err on the side of caution.

Wumpmom, no need feel sorry. There are a zillion Indonesians targeting unsuspecting persons in the US under the guise of selling kratom. Just read some of the stories from Joe at Re-Leaf LLC for an idea how many frauds are out there AS WELL AS OUR FAVORITE TREE. Just think of it the same you would if you got a phone call from India wishing to fix your computer or offering lottery winnings. The very reason for using vendors in the US (and particularly the ones approved on ILK) is to provide safety and legitimacy to users. You can get a bag of dirt for $150 the size of your back yard from Indonesia. Poop included FREE!

Whew, thanks Laurie. That night actually made me stop and think. I was almost to buy some from a guy at 40 bucks, to cover shipping, for a free Kilo.... but after that night I decided to wait and think about it. But I know what you mean, there is a lot popping up.. sites than could be scammers. I entered a search on FB and found quite a few I wasn't quite sure about... I'm sure there is some honest ones that really see a chance to prosper and are honest. But I know I don't even just have 40 bucks on a huge maybe.. or just get stuff that might not be very good. I was thinking initially on impulse, since I don't have a huge chunk to spend on a kilo.

But thanks so much Laurie, I kinda felt like a jerk for my defensive post... and I love this forum.. I've learned a ton here and everyone is so awesome.

Hi Wumpmom,

No need to be apologetic. You just haven't been here long enough to hear the stories. But you raised the important point. US Vendors risk hard earned money to import safely and they have more familiarity with the market. I've seen perfectly good businesses FOLD OVERNIGHT because their livelihood was confiscated at the border for ZERO REASON. No labeling was missed, no legal loophole was skipped. Product was considered "unknown" and never seen again.

By supporting our favorite vendors, they can hone their craft of finding good product and safely importing it FOR US, so we can safely buy what we want. Yes, they need to mark it up to pay their rent, but their passion and sweat are FREE.

There ARE some good Indonesians offering valid product. But there's no way to know. Search 'Re-Leaf LLC Indonesian' on this website for some of his stories about Indonesians offering the sun and the moon to him.

Every vendor takes the risk of trusting the good Indonesians to get them the product we enjoy. They don't advertise the bunk stuff they throw out and the headaches encountered with getting good stuff, but it's no easy task.

SUPPORT YOUR VENDORS TO SUPPORT GOOD INDONESIANS is the best advice I have for today, no charge HAHAHA

All is not lost, Tuan. See our approved vendor list. You can market to THEM and really help a lot of people here. Be sure to get their permission. Some have had ENOUGH marketing and will not encourage you, but keep trying. One good vendor for you will get your product to a lot of us who appreciate your hard work. I'm so glad you read my message and understood the intent. THANK YOU!
