Hey everyone, just wanted to share a quick notice about the inventory count that is going on right now at our warehouse. They have stopped shipping and receiving products for a couple of days while they complete a full count and verification of their inventory.
This means that any new orders placed today will not ship until the count is completed, plus any time needed for them to clear the backlog/queue that accumulates before a given order is placed. We expect the count to wrap up in the next couple of days, and for the backlog to be worked through by the end of this week. That would put us back at normal processing/delivery times by the end of this week (2023-08-04), if everything goes as planned.
Additionally, this adjusted delivery estimate has already been baked into the estimated delivery dates listed on product pages, so you can reference those for any particular item as well.
We'll continue to update as and if anything changes, and of course you can leave any...
As many of you know, we celebrated our 10th anniversary last year. It has been quite a journey. From Massdrop to Drop, and from a unique group-buy site to today’s hybrid model that finds cool stuff other people make, while designing and manufacturing stuff ourselves, and at the same time moving more and more to an in-stock model.
Today, I have the honor of sharing with you yet another step in our evolution. Drop has been acquired by Corsair.
I am sure front-of-mind for you is what this will mean for Drop and our focus on our discerning, engaged enthusiast community - especially at a time when we’ve been watching other players in the community struggle or outright fold. Obviously, we are convinced this move is good for us, for you and for the hobby, and I’ll give you a sense of why here.
I know within the community Drop is sometimes seen as a “big” company, but you would be surprised how few-but-mighty our team is given the extraordinary range of products we have designed and/or...

Please, I beg of you: let us choose WEEKLY email frequency!
I'm not holding my breath, since I can see many posts pleading for this dating all the way back to 2016... but Drop seriously needs a weekly option for the "new products" emails.
Virtually every other ecommerce site that defaults to sending incessant daily emails offers the ability for subscribers to only get one(ish) email a week. Why? Because they'd much rather only send one email a week than have subscribers get fed up and unsubscribe altogether, which is where I'm finally at.
Drop employees — is this something you'd ever consider?
I avoided the drop mystery box before because they had the infinity war keycaps in them and I bought a box from the most recent run because the infinity war keycaps were out of stock. From the description of the box it says in stock items so thought I was safe. Box arrived today and I ended up with infinity war keycaps anyways. Massively disappointed. Is there someone I should contact about it?
Hi everyone! We are beyond excited to announce a major update here on Drop.
Our new community, Battlestations, is now live! You can find our launch landing page here. Please read the official announcement from our CEO, Jef, for an additional perspective on why this new community means so much to us.
The new community allows us to feature products outside of the two mainstay communities that you’ve come to know and love: Mech Keys and Audiophile. We know as well as you do that curating the perfect workspace is a very personal endeavor, and also non-trivial. Finding just the right thing for your setup can take a lot of work. We hope that by adding this new community here on Drop we can provide a space for highly-regarded and unique desk items that will be sure to complement the accessories you have already carefully selected for your setup.
Along with the launch of our new community, we have a whole host of auxiliary events and giveaways to...
Didn't receive the $10 discount coupon on my email
I just created my Drop account this week but haven't received any email regarding the $10 discount they offered. I'm looking to buy the pc37x so I would appreciate to receive the email.
Edit: The issue was solved by Drop Support and the attention provided was very caring and pleasant. I have no complaints about how they solved it.
Request S.M.S.L D300 for beautiful analog like desktop DAC
How do you request a product on drop? I’ve only seen ways to vote on products already listed. I had voted for the SMSL SU-9 that just got announced but I’ve been wanting the D-300 as it has the better ROHM chip and have been reviewed to be much more enjoyable to listen to more similar to an analog sound. This is the one I’m interested in! Would love to see the SMSL D300 on here.
Be very aware of drop shipping to the wrong address
I ordered from drop on April 16th 2023, package was shipped on the 18th. It was delivered to the wrong address on the 23rd. It's a minor mistake in the address, it should be avenue, not place. Drop support has done nothing but argue with me when trying to sort this out. They instructed me to go to the address it was delivered to and retrieve the package. They also recommended calling the courier. Contacting the courier did nothing. They told me to contact drop. Drop support has also not been consistent in stating if the address I entered when I ordered was right or wrong, they've gone back and forth with me on this. Does it really matter whose fault it is? Sort it out.
Drop refuses to issue me a refund. I have now disputed this with my credit card company.
Even after submitting several requests regarding this - I simply get copy and paste answers. Or someone that is argumentative.
I will never purchase anything from this site again. What a joke.
Nothing is certain but death and taxes. Or so you thought.
We can’t grant you immortality, but we can grant you a refund. It’s time to Take Back Your Tax.
TLDR; no sales taxes for the next two weeks + free international shipping!
In the US, Tax Day is just a few days away. For some of us it’s good news. For others, not so much. Here on Drop, it’s great news for everyone. That’s because starting April 10th, 2023 through April 23rd, 2023 we will automatically refund the sales tax collected with your order. To follow federal laws we have to charge sales tax—however once you receive your order confirmation you’ll see the sales tax refunded. Refunds are typically visible within a day (or right away, depending on payment method and financial institution).
Simple as that.
Sales Tax exempt states (AK, DE, MT, NH, and OR) are unfortunately not included in this campaign. Lucky you—every week is a sales-tax-free week.
Non-US based customers can join the fun, too. Use code...

Update 2023-01-17: The warehouse made some significant progress over the weekend. Nearly every order for in-stock products has been processed through the warehouse system, and should have notified to your email that it is on its way. Many orders have departed the warehouse while others are waiting for courier pickup.
Some orders were waiting for an inbound delivery to the warehouse (the item would not have been listed as in-stock when you purchased, but had an estimated shipping date that has now been delayed). These items were unable to be receipted into the warehouse due to the systems outage; with warehouse operations picking back up, this process is able to begin again. For anyone waiting for these items, we expect them to be brought into inventory this week, then shipped shortly after.
This covers the vast majority of outstanding/delayed orders. If you feel that your order's status is not addressed in this update, please reach out to the CS team to take a closer look at the...
Has anyone else been affected by awful shipping experiences?
I ordered a pair of Meze 99 Noirs the day after Christmas and have only been met with shipping delays and have been completely left in the dark by customer service. I was told there was a warehouse issue and was wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences lately.
Hello, I ordered a pack of switches almost 2 weeks ago. I never got a confirmation email for my transaction. I hadn’t ordered under an account due to me not having one. Is there any way I can get this fixed or check on the order? Please and thank you in advance for any help!
