Cut operational losses using COD verification

Why verify your COD orders?

Cash on delivery (COD) is a great enabler for the e-commerce industry. It contributes to more than 50% of all e-commerce transactions. But, it also is one of the leading sources of operational loss due to cancellations and bogus orders. Hence, reducing COD failures is top priority for e-commerce players. Using Exotel, you can ensure that your COD orders are legitimate before you ship them out.
