Why you should look no further than pay on delivery
Pay after delivery is by far the favorite payment method of Germans. More than 40 percent of all sales in e-commerce are generated using payment on account. With AfterPay, not only do you offer your customers precisely this payment method, but you also provide them with the desired flexibility. With the 14-day payment term, free payment pausing and payments in flexible or fixed installments, your customer decides when and how to pay.
Pay after delivery leads to customer retention
The payment method selection and the subsequent processing normally mark the end of your contact with the customer in your online shop. But this is precisely the point which decides whether this will be a one-off purchase or whether a long-term relationship will result. Remind your customers of their purchasing experience with product images and a unique hero image. Address your customers directly with other campaigns, such as discounts or extended payment terms in order to keep them loyal to your online shop in the long term.
