DHL recently announced plans to establish a cash-on-delivery service in areas of southeast Asia such as Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. The majority population in these areas either do not have access to or have decided against using credits cards or bank accounts and instead favor cash, and offering the potential of an untapped market for many online retailers and e-commerce sites.

The delivery company is now offering a cash collection service upon delivery, with said trackable payments being remitted to sellers in the regions of China and Australia every fortnight. The brand aims to marshal its reliable reputation to assure customers and sellers alike that the service is safe and completely secure, while also being an efficient new payment option for both parties.

This service aims to help potential customers in southeast Asia to purchase products that they may never have considered or had access to previously as well as allow Chinese and Australian retailers to reach an until now largely underserved target audience. DSL hopes to increase overall sales as well as observe and record the shopping habits and preferences of this captive audience.
