    Drop is this a scam? Review and Customers Reviews

    Published: 27 October 2020 Updated: 15 February 2023

    Drop (or Massdrop, as the service used to be called) used to be a site for joint purchases from abroad with a broader assortment. At the moment, it has been completely repurposed as an online grocery store of its own production, retaining its social focus. Users make up a community where they can discuss products, chat, upload photos, take part in surveys, etc.

    The company emphasizes that its customers influence the development of new products offered on the site. How much of this corresponds to reality and can a foreign supplier be trusted? Online store Drop – is it a scam or a serious market player? Let’s try to find out.

    Audio equipment

    Hiking goods

    Tents, inflatable pillows, backpacks, hiking knives and multitools, sharpening tools, flashlights, can openers, belts, utensils, LED lights, clothing, etc. – The exact list, quantity, and cost range are difficult to estimate, as items are scattered in different categories.

    Selected items can be saved in Favorites, so as not to lose them.

To register, click Sign Up in the upper right corner of the resource. And fill in the fields in the form that opens: email address, password (we make it up ourselves). Or you can authorize using your Facebook profile or Google-account (in this case you’ll have to give your consent to access the personal data of the pages).

    Personal Cabinet

    Personal user account drop.com is an analogue of a social networking page. Here is the profile itself (Profile), where you add information about yourself and from where you can correspond with other people, participate in the development and discussion of new Drop products, take surveys (all history is reflected in the appropriate tabs). You can also see the statistics of your account views, comments, subscribers and feedback. In addition to your profile, the following sections are available:

    • Rewards. Your balance in the bonus program (we told about it below, in the block with description of bonuses) and its detailed conditions.
    • Saved Products (Saved). A list of what you’ve added to your favorites, broken down by category.
    • Order history (Transactions). Your current and past purchases with details and payment statuses.
    • Page settings (Settings). Information about you (login, full name, e-mail, password) with the possibility of editing, the option of linking social networks and bank cards (all the above – in the tab My Info), adding an address (Shipping Addresses), selection of mailing topics (the same step as we did during registration – tab My Communities) and actions at the site to notify you about (someone signed up for you, you were marked, new person joined the community using your link, etc. – the Email Settings tab), your blocked users (who you’ve told not to send you emails – the Hidden Members tab), and your profile visibility settings (whether or not to show your purchases and voting activity to other users – the Privacy tab).
    • Go to the referral program description page (Give $10, Get $10).
    • Go to the Help Center. This is essentially an FAQ that answers the most common questions.

    Additional options for the online store (if you count searching and purchasing, shipping, payment, and creating/managing a personal account) are a newsletter, a user community, a blog with reviews and guides, a program for designers and brand owners, and an online order tracking feature.


    If you want to receive notifications from the merchant not only about changes in the status of orders and important legal information, but also special offers, invitations to participate in promotions, and interesting content, it’s worth subscribing to the newsletter.

Really formed a whole community. And, to keep it active, the seller encourages some of the actions with bonus points (more about them below).


    Although the drop.com blog is located in approximately the same directory of the online store, it consists of slightly different blocks: news, guides, and reviews of released products. The selection of materials is very large, and for the convenience of search we have introduced sorting and breakdown into headings.

    Complaints about Drop

    There are few reviews about drop.com (just over a hundred). Mostly the Internet site is discussed on thematic forums, although there are also reviews, where comments about the seller are published. And among them there are a large number of complaints about the work of the customer service, which, according to users:

    • Slowly responds to requests (over several days).
    • Refuses a refund.
    • Sometimes they are rude to customers.
    • Some customers never received the goods they paid for.

    There are also positive reviews, but they are much fewer. The authors of complimentary comments write about the quality of the products, fast delivery and, conversely, the competent work of the support team and their willingness to meet the customer’s needs.

    Supervisory authorities

    Drop.com is owned by Massdrop, Inc. of America, a corporation registered in San Francisco, California, under C3488763. A statement confirming this is in the Secretary of State’s public registry. The organization was last audited in 2018.

    The site itself acts only as an information resource monitored by Roskomnadzor for inappropriate content and the use of unlawful ways to process users’ personal information. Thus, if a complaint arises, it will have to be resolved on the basis of American law and by appealing to foreign authorities, such as the California government, which regulates the legal entity.

    Drop.com User Agreement

    The drop.com User Agreement (Terms of Service) defines the online store’s user experience, as well as the rights and obligations of the buyer and seller. Let’s look at some of the wording of the document. So, the site is allowed to use the adult and legally capable persons who have the right to purchase goods and services. At any time you can be denied access to a web resource, refuse to register or delete your account without warning. However, this should not affect your legal rights.

    Drop User Agreement

    You must reimburse the company for any losses it suffers in the course of doing business with you and/or due to your violation of the terms of service.

    drop.com reimbursement

    All the information you provide must be accurate, complete and true. You are responsible to the seller for updating (updating) them in your personal cabinet.

    Drop responsibility

    Customer Service

    There is no direct communication with Drop (phone line, online chat). At least it doesn’t say anything about it on the website. You can talk to the seller’s customer service:

    Or send a letter to the San Francisco headquarters. The FAQ (help center) also provides answers to common questions about orders, collaboration, and personal account management.


    Is Drop a scam?

    Online store Drop belongs to an officially registered company, but its activities are based on the principles of foreign law. Therefore, when asserting your rights, you will have to go to unfamiliar authorities and study the local rules. And the processing of applications may be delayed. That, in fact, is demonstrated by online reviews, whose authors note the slow response to their requests from the support team. Another unpleasant factor is the need to register on drop.com to see the catalog. It turns out that we provide our personal data and consent to its processing before we even know whether or not we want to order from the seller.

    On the other hand, the user agreement is available to everyone, and much information can be gleaned from it (though not all). Also unlikely to please customers the need to pay in advance and not always available return (when it is, you may have to pay a commission of 25% of the price of the product for return shipping to the seller). Of course, you can’t claim that drop.com is a scam. However, many of the features of the site’s operation demonstrate a focus primarily on protecting the interests of the company rather than the customers.



    Drop – is a service with an interesting concept that has undergone a number of changes (from a cooperative purchasing service and third-party brand auctions to an online store of personal-branded goods). It has good prices, many interesting and useful features (ratings, discussions, personal correspondence between users, etc.), offers rewards in the form of bonus points or dollar amounts to pay the check, and often features highly specialized products (for example, an elbow rest for those who sit a lot at the keyboard and get tired).

    However, there is no way to see the catalog before registering (and providing personal information), there is no direct and quick (by phone, online chat) communication with company representatives, 100% pre-payment applies and there is not always a full refund for the item you are giving up. Plus the customer, in addition to the item itself and shipping, pays tax and customs fees (these are not included on the website). Reviews of Drop on international reviewers are not always positive: many complaints about long delivery times have been published (and in some cases the package has never reached the recipient).
