As you all know, we’re facing an unprecedented situation around the world as everyone tries to cope with the effects of the pandemic. Here at Asset Drop, we've been affected in several ways, which are listed below.
Due to the reduced number of flights moving around the world, the cost of shipping internationally has gone up. As a result, we've had to increase our prices by around 20% - the new price list can be found on this page. We've absorbed more than half of the increase to keep prices as low as we can for you!
Shipping Twice a Month:
In order to further keep the postage increase down, we're shipping our boxes twice a month in large batches. This allows us to qualify for discounts we wouldn't normally get, and helps to offset some of the huge price increases due to less international flights.
Our first batch of boxes will ship mid-month and then one at the end of the month. This is because many of the brands we feature in our boxes are struggling to meet the deadlines for delivering stock due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic. Therefore our boxes won't be ready to ship until mid-month, although you can reserve your copy from the 1st. We're really sorry!
Shipping times globally have increased due to Covid-19. International boxes going to Europe are now taking 4-6 weeks, and boxes heading to rest of world destinations like the USA could take as long as 8 weeks to arrive!
This is due to staff shortages and a backlog of parcels in the postal system. It's making shipping very unpredictable right now in terms of timescales, but rest assured that our subscriptions boxes are still making it to people overseas. They're just doing so on as longer timescale than normal.
Three Month Subscriptions:
Due to the increasing volatility of the pandemic, we've decided to suspend 3 month subscriptions. This allows us to respond more quickly to changing situations. All our monthly subscriptions are still available, but the 3 month versions are unavailable for now. Anyone currently on a 3 month subscription will retain their 2.5% discount and will be swapped automatically onto the 1 month version before their next renewal.
We're sorry that this update contains so much bad news. Thank you so much for your understanding and support during this difficult time; it means the world to us and helps our small business stay afloat :)
