The Black Friday sales include discounts as high as 70% off official merch!

Still, netizens were very disappointed by the selection of products as each artist only got a few products on high, and it seemed to be mainly older merchandise that Weverse Shop likely wanted to get rid of.

Not only that but the few items that netizens had hoped for immediately sold-out. We’re looking at the TinyTAN whale…

Most of all, though, what has netizens really bothered by the Black Friday sale is the shipping cost. Despite the major discount on merchandise, the shipping fee is unbelievably high. So, it does more than just cancel out the discount.
i really hope weverse knows they’d make way more money if they cut that shipping fee down like 70% but alright pic.twitter.com/vHlMRXXUHO

Even if you buy a $3 USD keychain, Weverse Shop will charge over $70 USD for shipping it.
Weverse this is a joke right?
