What is the difference between COD and prepaid orders?

Lazada Support Center

What is COD?

  • COD (Cash on Delivery) is a type of transaction in which the recipient makes payment for good at the time of delivery instead of having to pay before receiving the goods (online payment). 
  • This type of transaction usually takes place through a shipping company and allows both the seller and the buyer of the product to minimize the risk of fraud or default.
  • The purchaser remits payment to the shipping company, which then relays the payment back to the seller.

What are Prepaid orders?

  • Prepaid is a type of transaction in which the recipient makes payment for the goods during the time of purchase through the internet upon check-out.
  • Prepaid payment will normally reflect as Credit Card/Debit Card, Ipay88, Paypal or vouchers under payment method in your Seller Center account.

There will be two types of payment upon every purchase :

  1. Prepaid : item delivered by Skynet, Gdex, Poslaju, etc.
  2. COD (Cash on delivery) : item delivered by Taqbin

The image below will give you a better understanding about these types of payment.
