Online Shopping in Nigeria | Pay on Delivery

In this article, I am going to show some Online Shopping in Nigeria that accept payment on delivery and why they do so.

Due to lack of trust on the side of many online vendors in Nigeria such as delivering products that are of different quality they initially advertised online and inconsistent in their period of delivery sometimes, a lot of customers have resorted to payment on delivery each time they order for goods online.

As an online vendor, it is worthy of note that your potential customers would prefer to see the product you want them to buy from you before opting for pay online in order to avoid the popular “what I ordered, what I received”. That is the major reason why you should pay for the goods any time you deliver it to them.

On the other hand, they are still some advantages and disadvantages of ‘Pay on Delivery’ for both parties. It could be a loss to the seller or to the buy and vice versa. See Top Grocery Stores in Nigeria.

By the time you through reading this article, you should be able to how online shopping in Nigeria with payment on delivery is done, the online shops that accept it, and the implications.

How to win Pay on Delivery in Nigeria

I have two options for you and they depend on the size of your business.

  • Localized Self-delivery or
  • Nationwide delivery

Localized self-delivery

It is ideal for very small side hustle business owners. Here, you do not have to order lots of products instead you sell to customers upon request.

But in this case, you will only be advertising to the audience in your own location or neighboring states. This will reduce the stress, risk, and expenses incurred upon shipping.

Self-delivery means that you will be in charge of delivering your items to your customers around you. For example; if you live in Lagos, you can channel your marketing to only people living in Lagos. You will spend less on delivery.

No need to start looking for delivery agents to deliver for you. But you can still find delivery agents to handle the logistics on your behalf.

Nationwide Pay on delivery

This option allows you to create your own micro agents in some major states. In this case, you already have plenty of products to distribute to your agents.

These agents are some people that work under you, you pay them based on delivery. But the challenge, in this case, is who to trust. Get people to work for you but before then you must get a reference from them in case they mess your business up.

How does it work?

When a new order comes from Kano, you will check with your agent in Kano so that it can be shipped immediately.

This option is not for you if your primary outsourcing model is 2 pieces per product. If you can send at least 10 pieces of a product to almost 10 delivery agents in 5 – 10 cities in Nigeria, then it is for you.

Other important considerations include

Quicken your delivery time so that your customer would not be victimized by circumstances. A lot of things may persuade your customer not to consider paying for what they ordered.

Personal issues and miscellaneous events can cut short your customer’s budget. Selling to one city may not bring in more buying customers as compared to when you’re targeting major cities or Nigeria.

To be on the safer side, accept pay on delivery within your location then cash on delivery in other states. But if you want to crush it, find delivery agents that can handle your logistics operations while you give yourself some space to think and rest.

Disadvantages of delivery agents in Nigeria

Not everyone will be disposed to work at any time unless working time was agreed on, Remittance issues – Circumstances may sway your agent to use your money to solve their personal issues.

Damages – depending on the nature of your products, some agents could be too nasty to keep your products in good shape and clean.

How do you make customers pay before delivery?

Here are some of the most effective tips to make customers:

  1. Prepare a written payment agreement.
  2. Have stricter payment terms.
  3. Follow a regular payment schedule that works for your customers.
  4. Ask for an upfront payment or deposit.
  5. Provide different payment methods.
  6. Accept direct debit payments.
  7. Send payment reminders regularly.
