Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal have stopped CoD options post the new currency notes announcement.

Flipkart has disabled CoD for orders above Rs. 2000/; Amazon (and Snapdeal) has made a blanket stop on CoD.

We have disabled COD for you to save cash for essential payments, says the Amazon checkout page.

The reality is that ecommerce companies don’t want to get into the hassle of rejecting Rs. 500 and 1000 notes, as consumers are desperately trying to use it in different platforms.

And like we said earlier, ecommerce business from Tier-2 and Tier-3 will get massively impacted owing to the new ‘anti black-money’ notes.

Welcome to the new world order! Maybe, time to replace Cash in CoD with Card (on delivery)?
