How many complaints are legitimate?How many complaints have been made about them? Just remember, every company has complaints against them of some sort. Things can always go wrong. It’s how the company deals with problems that’s important. Most people are quick to complain rather than compliment. For every complaint there are usually 1000 satisfied customers that do not post their positive experiences. That number is probably even higher. You’ll find people have a lot to say about the scams. Check out what people in forums and review sites have to say. Ask questions before you decide who to buy from. You want to know if people received their order from a website and whether the seeds were of a high quality.
Be secretiveThe best way to get caught is to tell your friends what you are doing. When buying cannabis seeds do not tell anyone. If you want to order cannabis seeds online safely, keep your orders a secret. How do you expect someone else to keep your secret if you cannot keep it yourself? Learn to keep your mouth shut about what you are doing. Be secretive. This not only protects your privacy, it protects those close to you.
Choose a discreet payment methodCredit cards are the most common form of payment. Make sure the data for the purchase does not show you bought cannabis seeds. You can find this information out by looking in the frequently asked questions page. If you are still not sure, contact the website’s customer service to ask your questions. BC Seeds does not have any mention of seeds on your credit card statement. Most seed purchases will always show up as a souvenir or T-Shirt purchase on your Credit Card Statement. Many people try to use a prepaid visa card for their online purchases, but these often don’t get approved by the seed banks merchant. Seed purchases are often put through business purchases as another item, like a Canadian Souvenir Shop purchase. So it’s very safe to use your everyday credit card to purchase online. You’ll most likely run into trouble using a prepaid Visa or Credit Card. Cash is always king and you’ll normally get the best freebies and extra’s when paying by cash or even better, by BitCoins. Some seed banks take Bitcoin as payment. Bitcoin is a digital payment method that guarantees your privacy. This is the most secure way to pay. It’s also the fastest as sending cash by mail takes extra time. Many seed banks offer decent discounts for BitCoin purchases and it’s the best way to pay for seeds online. Your everyday use credit card is the next easiest.
Seed delivery – What makes a seed bank safe to order from onlineGetting the seeds delivered is easy with today’s latest stealth methods. It is a good idea to get them sent to only you because loose lips sink ships. Seed banks can ship seeds inside all sorts of things to disguise the contents of the parcel. No matter how you get your parcel delivered, make sure you use the stealth option if it’s available. If you don’t have the extra cash for stealth, don’t fear, you won’t get in trouble if they are confiscated. Because in order to properly charge you, they would need to grow the actually seeds for 3 month, spending money on nutrients, lights and gardeners. Then they would have to test them for THC. This takes tons of money, man power and time. It will never happen. They just remove the seeds from your package and send a letter that something in your mail was removed because it was not allowed. Even if they were just rose flower seeds you were getting sent, they would do the same. You won’t get flagged or have anything documented because their is no proof without the THC report after growing all your seeds.
International Delivery is still Very Fast in 2020Keep in mind international delivery can now be faster than domestic delivery. Air mail travels faster than trucks. Even during the lock downs in 2020, delivery times are not really affected. Mail delivery systems in first world countries are a smooth operating machine. When buying seeds in bulk, it may be a good idea to break your order into several deliveries when ordering large amounts. But most legit seed banks offer you a 100% delivery guarantee, so it’s not necessary. If you have no guaranteed delivery, it makes sure that if something gets lost then not all of the order is lost at one time.
Buy female cannabis seedsBuying female cannabis seeds simply makes sense. You may think you are saving money buying the males, but in the long run they will save you heaps of money. Plus you need to get send less seeds in the mail because you won;t be using the male seeds to grow sinsemilla buds.
Mask your contact detailsDon’t use a return address on the envelope, just be certain you used more than enough postage and the destination address is 100% correct. This way no one scans your letter on the outside for data storage later. Stay safe and anonymous. No one is allowed to open your letter except to the person you’re sending it too. But they can collect data on the outside of the envelope to be used against you. What makes a seed bank safe to order from online is now public knowledge.
