pay (for something) COD
To pay for a purchase when it is delivered as opposed to in advance at the time of ordering ("COD" being an initialism of "cash/collect on delivery"). I always prefer to pay COD so I can inspect my order before handing over any money. If you do not have a credit card when ordering online or over the phone, you can arrange to pay for your purchase COD.
