Returning your order

ASOS accepts returns for a full refund – including sale items – within 28 days of your order, free of charge. Items do not need to be returned in the same packaging, but they do need to be returned in good condition, so make sure you package them properly! Use the prepaid shipping label that comes with your original package. Returns take about 10 days to process.

If you return an item 29 to 45 days after your purchase, you’ll be refunded in the form of store credit.

Can I exchange for a different color or size?

ASOS doesn’t accept exchanges outside of the UK. You’ll need to return the unwanted item for a full refund, then purchase the new item separately.

How do I return an item to ASOS?

Attach the prepaid shipping label that came with your original package to the outside of the box. Make sure no other barcodes or addresses are showing. Then, place your items back in the box, including all original packing whenever possible. Mail your return via USPS. Alternatively, you can schedule a pickup on the U.S. Postal Service’s website.

The returns address will be on the prepaid shipping label sent with your original package. If you can’t find your label, contact ASOS customer support via live chat or through its secure online email form.

What sets ASOS apart?

Originally branded AsSeenOnScreen, ASOS started as an online store selling fashion items and furniture that were featured on popular television shows. Fashion items were most in demand, so the brand started to focus on sourcing replicas of clothing worn by celebrities and style icons. Hence the name: AsSeenOnScreen.

As the company began to sell more than just clothes “seen on screen,” it shifted away from its original name and re-branded itself as ASOS. By 2001, sales had topped $250 million, and the brand began to form its loyal customer base of style-conscious 18- to 24-year-olds.

Case study: Cheryl's experience

I love shopping at ASOS when I’m looking for something specific. And with such a huge selection, I’ve almost always found it, no matter how obscure. Gray cotton-blend button-down T-shirt with a split back? Found it!

Prices are fairly low, yet quality is pretty consistent compared to similar sites. I also had luck with their maternity department during my pregnancy. I still wear their comfy, stretchy leggings to this day.

The only downside I’ve found is inconsistency with sizing. One maternity sundress I bought was cut impossibly small and narrow across the chest — and for maternity clothing that’s meant to be forgiving, that one was unforgivable.

How can I contact customer support?

Get in touch with ASOS customer support by:

  • Live chatting online
  • Tweet @ASOS_HeretoHelp
  • Send a message through Facebook messenger
  • Fill out its online contact form to send an email

Bottom line

ASOS offers up the latest fashion trends worn by celebrities, at a fraction of the price of designer retailers. If you’re shopping for fashion-forward pieces on a budget, this brand is worth a look.
