Prior to the pandemic, cash-on-delivery (COD) was still a favored form of payment for many customers in the MENA region. At the onset of COVID-19, consumer needs changed leaving many concerned with hygiene aspects of handling physical cash. As a result, COD customers swiftly pivoted to digital payments, now the favored form of payment in the region.
Using Noon Payments, sellers can accept all payment methods under one integration (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Mada, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay, Paypal, KNET and many more). Returning customers can also save cards for a faster one-click checkout.
