In cashless society era, let's see Top 10 countries mostly use Cash on Delivery...


1. Thailand


Even most of Thai people begin to change to use cashless payment, but there are also so many that still use cash as the main payment for everyday life.


The products they buy online are handmade products, products from China, and IT products. The most popular online shopping websites are social media like Facebook and Instagram, and marketplace like Shopee and Lazada.


2. Mexico


Cash is a king in Mexico. Mexican people like to use cash. So, cash on delivery is used unsurprisingly.

4. Germany


There are 50.71 million eCommerce users in Germany, with an additional 2.91 million users expected to be shopping online by 2021. It's surprised that cash payment is still in a high demand in Germany. Germany holds Europe’s highest rate of invoice transactions— meaning customers only pay for goods once they decide what to keep after delivery.


That makes it easier to abort a purchase and return the product before any money changes hands. I reckon this is the main reason why COD service is still popular in Germany.
