Not since the passing of Patrick on Offspring have we been so trivially devastated.
After offering worldwide customers free shipping, ASOS have announced they are now, as of yesterday, charging a delivery fee.
Australian customers now have to spend over $30 to get free shipping. For orders under $30, a flat fee of $4.99 will be charged.
Which doesn’t sound like a big deal, right? $4.99? That’s about how much you pay for a large coffee in most capital cities (Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, I’m looking at YOU).
Suddenly not so much of a bargain, huh?
Of course being on antipodean shores we’re used to paying a premium for shipping, but just like low university fees, it sure was good while it lasted.
And just like Patrick’s passing, we’ll get over it… eventually.
But wait! You can however, pay $39 a year for ASOS Premier membership, which entitles you to free express shipping (two days to metro areas in Australia) with unlimited orders (shop as much as you like!).
A spokesperson at ASOS Head Office confirms the new shipping charges won’t affect the Premier membership.
So if you’re a frequent ASOS shopper (um, who isn’t?), it might be worth signing up for, stat!
Will the new delivery fee change the way you shop at ASOS?
