Can I pay cash on delivery at Shein?

When we talk about cash on delivery, we mean paying our order at the time of pick up, thus, giving the money to the mailman or carrier.

This system is complicated to manage in international pages where thousands of daily shipments are made. That's why at the moment, Shein only accepts cash on delivery in some countries: India, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman y Bahrain.

We know that there are many people who prefer cash on delivery payment for security, but you should know that there is no risk in buying on Shein. We recommend you to read our article on whether Shein is safe, where we explain how everything works, from payment to possible returns.

Next, we will see what other payment methods Shein does accept, and what is the best alternative to paying with cash on delivery.

Credit or debit card

Both credit and debit cards are very secure payment methods when shopping at Shein.

Shein has data protection systems such as Trustwave or DMCA which manage payments with total security and guarantee that your data will not be filtered. This store has millions of satisfied users and there are no precedents of user's bank details leaking, or anything of the sort.

In addition, Shein's return and refund policy is very good so your money is safe: if your purchase does not arrive or is not what you expected, you can get your money back.

In short, if you have a credit or debit card, either Visa, Mastercard or American Express (look for the logo of these companies on your physical card), you can shop at Shein safely.

PayPal with bank account

Another good alternative is to pay with PayPal: this is an entity that allows you to manage payments and is available in most online stores.

It has high security levels considering it uses its own and third party encryption methods. When paying with PayPal, we will prevent the online store where you are buying from having your bank details.

One of its strengths is that it accepts payments by linking your bank account, although it can also be used with a credit card. All you have to do is register, add your account or card details and wait for validation. When you finally pay for your products, the money will be deducted from your account.

If the money is reimbursed through PayPal, it will remain in your balance and you can even move it back to your bank account.

The great advantage of buying with PayPal in Shein is that we add an extra security: if we have problems with our purchase or simply after the established time we have not received anything, PayPal has its own refund insurance.

This means that we are doubly protected: by Shein's generous refund policy and, if we are not satisfied, by PayPal itself. It's true that at Shein there are almost never any problems, but it's nice to know that we are protected.

Virtual or prepaid cards

If you don't feel comfortable using your bank card online or simply want to control your spending, virtual or prepaid cards are a good option.

Conventional cards work like this: they are linked to a bank account and when you buy online the money will be deducted from your credit or bank balance. In addition, credit cards may have additional costs for management or maintenance.

On the other hand, with virtual cards you deposit money before buying and you can only spend the money you have in your balance. This eliminates many risks, because even if someone gets your card details, there is no money that can be stolen.

For everything else, they work exactly the same as a credit or debit card. But with the advantage that they are not always linked to a bank account.

In short, these are their advantages:

  • They are free or very cheap. Few commissions.
  • They work like a normal credit or debit card.
  • Only the deposited balance is at risk. They do not admit overdrafts.
  • If they have a physical format, they can also be used to pay in stores.
  • They can be easily recharged.

Best prepaid cards for Shein

Most banks usually offer prepaid or virtual cards to their customers, as it is a way to make customers feel secure when making online purchases.

They have a very low or free issuance cost (depending on the bank), and most often the card expires in a short time to make it even more secure. There are even banks that offer single-use virtual cards.

There are also prepaid cards from independent companies. In this case, it is important to check the conditions of the card: how you can recharge the balance, if you need to link a bank account, how to recover your money in case you do not use it, if they have physical or only virtual support…

The best thing to do is to search the internet for the best compatible virtual cards with your current country of residence.

How to pay with a virtual card

To pay witha  virtual card in Shein or in any other online store, you only have to request the option to pay with credit/debit card when you make your purchase, and put all the data: card number, CVV security code (the three numbers that usually appear on the back) and card expiration.

You may also have to make security checks through your cell phone.

How refunds work

We have already mentioned that some virtual cards are characterized by being single-use or having a very short period of validity, to increase the security of users. But this is not a problem for refunds: they will arrive to the associated account or in the form of a balance on Shein's wallet.

Remember that you can also request a refund at Shein and ask for the money to be deposited in your Shein wallet to use the money for future purchases.
