ASOS offers over 60,000 branded and own label product lines across womenswear, menswear, footwear, accessories, jewellery and beauty, with approximately 1,500 new product lines being introduced each week. With 6.5 million active users, ASOS.com is the world’s most visited fashion web site, per day, by 18-34 year olds, and ships to customers in 241 countries and territories from the global distribution centre in Barnsley.
