Using cash-on-delivery

To use cash-on-delivery, you must have in your online store

  • a shipping method in which the customer picks up the order at the logistics company's collection point, instead of a parcel point and
  • a payment method with the Cash-on-delivery service enabled.

To enable cash-on-delivery as a payment method in your online store:

  1. When necessary, create a new shipping method, and select an appropriate shipping service for it.
  2. Create a new payment method on the admin panel's Settings > Payment methods page.
  3. As the payment service, select Cash-on-delivery.
  4. In the payment method's settings, select an appropriate shipping method.
  5. Define the rest of the payment method's settings, and save the payment method.

If the customer selects cash-on-delivery when placing the order, the order total will constitute the sum total to be paid upon delivery, which means that the total will include potential shipping and payment fees.

When processing cash-on-delivery orders, mark the order as delivered when you ship the order to the customer, but leave the payment as open. Mark the payment as paid only once it has been credited to your bank account.
