Hey Beautiful People!
This is coming later than ‘usual’ but, Happy New Year!!! 😀
I’m sorry i’ve been away for a while (and NO, i didn’t loose my blogging/writing mojo 🙄 ), i had professional exams and i didn’t want any distractions. The sacrifice was worth it, God crowned my hard work with success and i am now in my fourth year in Med school.
And more importantly, i’m back!!! 😉 Oh, how i’ve missed writing for y’all.
I’ve received a number of mails concerning how i place my order(s) on ASOS so I’ll just run through it in this post. There’s no need to fret, it’s pretty easy.
Shopping Shopping on asos, whether it’s their mobile site or the full web site, is simple. There’s easy navigation and a variety of brands and designers to pick from. You can filter and streamline your search to a range that suits you, checking off color, size, length, etc. You will also need an internationally accepted Master or VISA card; i have used UBA and GTBank Matser Cards and they’ve worked just fine. At checkout, you’ll need to enter the name on the card, the card number, the card expiry date and the card cvv code which is the last three numbers found on the back of card.
Delivery ASOS delivers to Nigeria and they currently offer two types of delivery options; the standard delivery which is absolutely free and takes up to about 9 working days (if you live in Lagos) or 10-12 working days (if you live in Port Harcourt) and then there is the express delivery which costs about £20 and takes up to 4 working days (for Lagos Residents) and 5 working days (for Port Harcourt Residents).
– The first time i placed an order below £100, it took me about a Month+ to find it, i had to pick it up my self from NIPOST and they explained that the reason it wasn’t delivered directly to my house was because there was no phone number for communication. Anyways, after that one time, it never happened again. They always deliver to my house (oh, i had to write down my phone no so they call before delivering the package), except when i decide to pick it up myself. Basically, orders below £100 do not get a tracking number so do well to locate a branch of NIPOST with your zip code as one of their areas of jurisdiction before placing any such orders.
– I’ve not yet tried their express delivery but i have placed orders above £100 and they deliver via a different postal agency, SKYNET. You get a tracking number too and you get to pay ‘small change’ for customs, on delivery (depending on the size of your package). I haven’t paid anything higher than N2000 for customs though.
– I think there’s an exception to this ‘£100 delivery thingy’. There was this one time i got a few pairs of shoes and some other things and it was about £77 in total but SKYNET delivered it to me in about 4/5 days. I was surprised but also super elated with the prompt delivery. (who knows, ASOS might have noticed this ‘faithful customer from Nigeria’ and decided to be nice OR there is an exception to their rule)
Here are some items i’ve gotten from the store
Not everything appears the way it does on the site, although i’ve loved everything i’ve gotten from them and not had any cause to return anything. Also, it’s not just female items they have; there’s a male division of the store.
I hope this was helpful, kindly share your asos experience in the comments section below and let us know if you’ll be shopping from asos soon.
Have a lovely week!
