Tip: Card payments reduce the risk of returning or cancelling an order, which is common when the customer chooses to pay on delivery. In addition,the likelihood of damage to the goods, during transportation, especially if you sell expensive pieces, must also be taken into account. It is therefore advisable to encourage your customers to pay by card. This can be done by giving a small discount if they choose this payment method.
