4. ASOS COMPLAINTS
ASOS takes complaints very seriously and strive to ensure complete customer satisfaction. After all, the company’s approach to business is epitomised by its tagline – “Fashion with Integrity.”
Since the primary mode of communication with customers is through live chat and email, they have a documented record of all customer complaints from the start. Customer service representatives have been instructed to escalate matters if they are unable to resolve any issues.
There is currently no external mediator for customers, so all matters are resolved internally. Nevertheless, customers are free to pursue resolutions through payment providers (credit card companies) or via the court system. Alternatively, you may consider sending an email to the company’s CEO, Nick Beighton, at firstname.lastname@example.org. However, we are uncertain of the efficacy of this method.
5. DEALING WITH ASOS CUSTOMER SERVICES
ASOS does not have a call centre, so all communication between customer service and customers are made using live chat or email (and social media, occasionally).
To minimise the number of back and forth communications, your first communication should ideally contain all the relevant information. This includes product model, invoice number, payment amount, delivery information, etc. By providing complete information, ASOS will be able to follow up on the complaint immediately instead of emailing you for more information.
In addition, when going on the live chat, try to do so during off-peak hours. They offer 24-hour service, so you can get in touch with them as early or as late as you like. This will reduce the time waiting to be served.
And please remember that written sarcasms, rants and insults will be read by every person handling your case. Don’t be tagged as a ‘difficult customer’ – people will be less motivated to do extra work.

6. ABOUT ASOS PLC
ASOS was established by co-founders Nick Robertson and Quentin Griffiths in June 2000 as AsSeenOnScreen PLC (www.asseenonscreen.com). The concept behind the new online business was to help ordinary folks dress like celebrities they see on TV. The company became an immediate hit. The Sunday Times even gave it the Best Trendsetter Award of 2000.
By the following year, Griffiths and Robertson has shortened the company’s name and website to ASOS. It also began to sell its own fashion label alongside external ones.
Despite several setbacks, most notably the 2005 Buncefield fire which razed a nearby warehouse containing about £5 million worth of stock, ASOS grew steadily over the next decade. By 2010, the company had launched seven regional websites in seven countries, and even opened branch offices in New York and Sydney.
By 2015, the company boasts of a 4,000-strong workforce and presence in over two dozen countries – and over 50,000 product lines in its catalogue. Today, the company is UK's largest independent online fashion retailer and is the world’s top fashion destination for the 20+ demographic.
