According to the American Council for Drug Education, 47 million Americans smoke cigarettes. The tobacco industry is still prosperous and makes products available to customers online and at stores.

Function

Online ordering makes it convenient for consumers to purchase cigarettes from any computer. Your cigarettes are sent to the location of your choice.

Costs

Cigarettes purchased online are often cheaper than those in the store. When you buy in bulk, the price is lower and you avoid paying high tobacco taxes. In cities like New York, the tobacco tax rate is $4.35 per pack.

Misconceptions

The misconception exists that cigarettes ordered online are not as fresh as those sold in stores, or that the cigarettes arrive broken. Online cigarette companies guarantee that their cigarettes are fresh and unbroken or your money back.
