Set up Cash on Delivery payment method in Magento 2
Customers pay for their purchase in cash in the Cash on Delivery (COD) process when receiving an order from the shipping carrier. The shipping company then returns the money to the store owner. Similar to other payment forms, we may pick the countries from which the store owners will approve the Cash on Delivery (COD) payment.
