Do we use cash any more?
How much loose change do you have in your pocket right now? Probably not much. Nowadays, more and more consumers are opting to conduct their transactions using cash-free methods. Whether paying for petrol, clothes, groceries or even household bills, it’s easier, faster and often more secure to pay using a credit or debit card. It is a huge security risk to carry large amounts of cash around on your person.
What is the cost of being a cash only system?
Every year, retailers are losing out on a staggering £12bn per year by not accepting card payments. Our society is becoming more and more ‘cash free’. Handling cash on-site is expensive, time consuming and fraught with security issues. It costs the average SME over £3k per year just to handle cash, a cost that is drastically reduced when card payment options are offered.
