Setting up “Cash on Delivery” payment using SAP Upscale Commerce


Some online merchants wish to provide their customers with a payment method called Cash on Delivery (or COD). Using this method the customer can shop at an online retail store, order a product and then delay the payment for the item until the product is delivered. This blog post outlines how to set up such a payment mechanism with SAP Upscale Commerce.


In order to set up CoD you will need the following:

  • Administrator access to an SAP Upscale tenant
  • Postman installed
  • Cash on Delivery postman collection files (environment_configuration.json and mapping_configuration.json) which can be found here.


Note that these instructions are for a tenant already configured with another Merchant account (such as Adyen or Stripe).

The general steps for setting up a Cash on Delivery payment are:

  • Create your Cash on Delivery Merchant Account in Upscale
  • Create an External Application in Upscale to get valid scopes
  • Import collections into Postman
  • Get Bearer Token
  • Set up Postman environment
  • Run Postman Collection
  • Configure Merchant Account
