ASOS is an e-commerce website based in the UK and they deliver to any nation worldwide. Ever since a search for Desert Boots on Google led me to the website I’ve shopped with them several times and I will be writing on how to buy on ASOS from Nigeria and all you need to know as to this.
ASOS is arguably the best e-commerce website I’ve patronized so far and the reason is not far-fetched, apart from their fluid and smooth website, they also have a mobile app (Android here and iOS here) with which you can shop easily on. ASOS sells virtually anything of both women and men and a lot of brand materials as shown below. ASOS are also the masters of giving discounts on products as a day nearly passes without seeing things like 20%, 50%, 10% off etc on their products.
All products on ASOS are genuine and top quality and you are getting a good value for your money. In all the times I have shopped on ASOS so far I paid with my GTBank Dollar MasterCard. If you don’t have one yet, read on how to get a GTBank Dollar MasterCard here.
How to Buy on ASOS from Nigeria
To buy on ASOS, visit their website at www.asos.com. If you are a new user, sign up with your email address on the website and fill in the necessary details on the My Account section. Make sure to fill in your shipping and billing address, contact information and preferences and also your payment method. Filling all these will ensure you have a smooth shopping experience.
When shopping on ASOS, you have the option of choosing a currency preference – The British Pound, The US Dollar or a Canadian Dollar. Since I have the GTBank Dollar Card I chose the US Dollar.
If you have just the normal Naira MasterCard you can just leave the default currency as it is, it works just as well, and after making payment your bank will deduct the Naira equivalent. See GTBank Dollar to Naira exchange rate today for those that will be paying with a Naira MasterCard.
ASOS Free Delivery to Nigeria and ASOS Express Delivery to Nigeria Review
After you’ve made the choice of the items you want to buy on ASOS and you’ve added to cart, you have the option of choosing either of the available two delivery methods.
ASOS Express Delivery to Nigeria
The express delivery takes a maximum of 4 working days; this means you get your goods on or before the 4th day after which you made your order. First time I shopped on ASOS I chose this method; I was charged $31.58 for the express delivery and I got the goods delivered to the shipping address I filled in My Account section. ASOS express delivery is handled by a UK company called DPD and you are provided with a tracking number, after your goods get to Nigeria it will be delivered by a courier company called Aramex. I got my goods exactly the fourth day, brand new and sealed.
ASOS Free Delivery to Nigeria – How to Buy on ASOS From Nigeria
The free delivery takes 10 -14 days and it is also handled by DPD, then Aramex when it gets to Nigeria. Sometimes when what you ordered is not much, ASOS sends it via the Local Poster Service (NIPOST) and you need to go to the nearest post office closet to you most times to claim your package in time. When you spend more than $158 on ASOS, delivery is totally free but when you spend below that you will be charged $25.27 for standard delivery.
In both times I’ve shopped on ASOS, I have spent above $100.
That is how to buy on ASOS from Nigeria. Got any problem? Drop comments below or DM ASOS Twitter help @ASOS_HeretoHelp
UPDATE: There has been a development, Aramex says if what you ordered costs $250 and above you will be charged a Customs Duty Payment. If you want to avoid paying this and your order is above $250, its best to split it into two and make the order twice.

UPDATE: ASOS has switched delivery companies in Nigeria over the years. Skynet handles standard deliveries now while DHL takes charge of express deliveries. From the latest comments from those who have made orders recently, you will always pay customs charge no matter how small your package is when Skynet handles it. DHL bills you extra custom charges too, but the safest thing to do now to avoid extra charges is to keep your order total between $130 – $140 because that will not attract any extra charges.
If you are going to order a lot, it is better to split the orders, if you can’t do that be ready to pay the customs charge.
