I am selling Loose Natural Sapphires online since 2008 through eBay and recently through on this website (www.SapphireBazaar.com). The only payment method which we can accept for customers from India has been PayPal which is not very convenient for the majority of customers who contact us from across India. Therefore we are looking forward to providing a Cash on delivery solution for customers based in India. Does Anyone know of a company who can provide such a system, where we can deliver the items to their address in India by FedEx & they can forward them to the final consignee on COD basis?  Any customs fees in India will be our responsibility as well as the FedEx cost of delivering the item to their office. 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hey there Mansoor!

Genevieve from Shopify here :) 

Many courier companies offer Cash On Delivery as part of their service. In India, these include FedEx, Blue Dart, DTDC, FirstFlight, Aramex and India Post. The following review of these services in relation  to COD might be useful to you:

Another option would be a shipping aggregator, which is a 3rd party logistics provider that makes use of multiple courier services.

Hope that helps!

We have many customers using the COD option with Delhivery or FedEx which enhances the capability of shipping. However, kindly note that both these carriers charge a fixed extra amount for delivering with COD. You can try the Multi Carrier Shipping label app for this purpose.
