The cash on delivery service is one of the most promising services which can be provided by a website involved in online buying and selling. Provision of such services is becoming more and more important, as we know the concept of online shopping is gaining popularity with each passing day. Even though online shopping is gaining popularity but that still doesn’t mean that Pakistan has completely accepted the online buying and selling trend. This lack of acceptance can be attributed to the fact that there is a general lack of trust when it comes to online transaction and hence, we need such amenities to prove to the people that we are a reliable and safe website. However, there are some online shopping websites which have recently introduced “Cash on Delivery” option for online buyers in Pakistan.
Some of the best and major online shopping stores in Pakistan offering “COD” include:-
