Slovaks prefer payment on delivery for internet purchases

Over three-quarters of Slovak shoppers on the mall.sk website prefer to make payments on delivery, according to a survey carried out by the online store in 2008. Up to 78 percent of the store's clients paid on delivery. Payment by instalments was chosen by 11 percent of customers while 7 percent paid when they picked up their goods in person. Electronic payment was chosen by only 4 percent of the customers, the TASR newswire wrote. Ladislav Csukas, the director of Internet Mall Slovakia, which runs mall.sk, said that the company expects more interest in payment by instalments due to the economic crisis. The company operates one of the largest internet stores in Central Europe. It also serves clients in the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Germany. TASR
