88% of e-commerce payments are cash-on-delivery. Vietnam is a deep-rooted cash society with a majority of transaction is made with cash. While mobile fin-tech ecosystem is still under development in the early stage, the foremost challenge is to educate the consumer to use e-banking, as well as gaining trust from the consumer. E payment was estimated at US $ 6.4 billion in 2017, with CAGR of 22%. 46% say they don’t want to use mobile payment because they don’t have a bank account, and concerns about losing banking information.

It is essential for websites to be mo- bile-friendly. Besides, the consumers are afraid of getting scammed, so they prefer cash-on-delivery than any other purchase methods. Therefore, a better online consumer protection legislation is neces- sary to encourage consumers to use e-banking when shopping online.
