#PIDSInfoBits: Did you know that online shopping payments in the Philippines are largely done through cash on delivery?
In 2019, among online buyers, 80 percent paid in cash, while among online sellers, 72 percent of payments were received in cash.
Security concerns were the most common reason for the nonuse of electronic payments. Among those with little or no schooling, lack of awareness about electronic payments was the major reason.
