Advanced Cash on Delivery Stop Working in Shopify

Cash on Delivery (COD) is a payment method often used in retail and e-commerce transactions in which the buyer pays for products or services upon delivery rather than in advance. In a COD transaction, the customer puts an order and chooses COD as a payment option. The goods are subsequently sent or delivered to the customer’s address, and the delivery person collects the payment when the items are handed over.

Cash on Delivery (COD), sometimes known as Pay on Delivery (POD), is a payment method in which you pay for items when they are delivered to you rather than paying in advance when you order them.
