What is Cash on Delivery (COD)?

Cash on delivery (COD) is a method of payment that allows the customer to make the payment for an order at the time of delivery. The payment can be made in cash or even by card or digital wallet if the delivery person is equipped with a Mobile POS device.

The business has to assume the risk of customers not accepting the order at the time of delivery. However, businesses still offer COD as an alternative payment option because of the benefits it offers:

  • It encourages more impulse buys as the customers don’t have to go through the hassle of filling in card details.
  • It helps in attracting new customers as they have lower trust and don’t want to risk making the payment before receiving the items. However, they are comfortable paying at the time of delivery.
  • It also caters to people who don’t have a credit card or don’t prefer using it for online purchases.
