COD denotes Card On Delivery tooI the context online shopping COD stood for Cash On Delivery. It was very convenient to the buyers especially those who are first time buyers or buying from new sellers. Usually when dealing with an online portal for first time or buying product of new seller buyers opt to COD. That reduces the risk for the buyers.
But today I found that COD can mean Card On Delivery also. A local departmental store had announced that they have started online shopping and home delivery. The payment choices were Cash on delivery and Card on delivery. I ordered and opted for card on delivery. The delivery person brought the card swiping machine with him. The transaction went smoothly. Of course I had used sanitizer to sanitize my card and my hand after the swiping and entering my pin.
