PayPorte Stops Payment On Delivery Services

Whether it's because of the FG's cashless policy or the recent killing of Jumia delivery Agent or not, PayPorte has suspended payment on delivery for their goods.

Payporte is an indigenous online store and sponsor of the ongoing Big Brother Naija TV reality show. PayPorte which also have bread seller come model - Olajumoke as brand ambassador has announced the suspension of ‘Payment On Delivery’, as part of its payment options.

According to the online store, the acceptable payments options now are online secured payments and bank transfers. This policy has already kicked off.

The MD / CEO, PayPorte, Mr. Eyo, said, the decision was in line with the new CBN cashless policy, increasing security challenges posed by Payment on Delivery option and improved customers satisfaction. In his words...

“We have suspended the Payment On Delivery option on our website with effect from today, April 3, 2017.

“Our decision was necessitated by the increasing risk and security challenges posed by this payment option. Also, to reduce the amount of cash carried from one location to another by our delivery staff. We encourage our customers to make use of our other secured electronic payment options such as online payment or bank transfer for payments.

“We believe this will also play an active role in the growth of e-commerce business in Nigeria, as well as give a new dimension to the business” added Eyo. In line with the suspension, refunds for unsatisfied customers would now be processed within a maximum of 48 hours while only customers who have shopped on PayPorte for five times or more will be able access the POD option from the 10th April pending its total discontinuation.

Recall that two weeks ago, an online delivery agent was murdered in Port-Harcourt when he went to deliver iPhone 7 ordered by two guys in the state. The incident led to Jumia's discontinuation of payment on delivery in Port-Harcourt.
