I’ll be honestly I’m surprised it took this long. I hardly ever use cash.
I carry zero cash on me these days, I only withdraw some if I know I’m going somewhere that is cash only. Everything else is Apple Pay, although I am not confident enough to drop my wallet completely just yet
I wonder how they counted the number of cash payments?
They’d have very smelly hands from counting all the copper that’s for sure
I honestly never carry cash anymore, I only carry it if it’s gifted or I’ve received it from someone else.
Failing that I’ve drawn it out of a hole in the wall as I’m going somewhere where I’m not sure if they accept card, however it’s getting hard to find somewhere that doesn’t accept it these days… 99/100 places do.
I’m also surprised it’s taken this long, I wonder how many people don’t realise they can pay via Apple pay etc and still use cash totally oblivious to tech.
Nice to see this milestone has finally been hit, it’s only going to go up from here.
I went to a street market yesterday I hadn’t been to in a while and virtually all of the stalls had signs up declaring that they took cards. I guess it just needed one to start the ball rolling.
I’ve taken a switch in the last week to a very minimalist wallet, which I have as an emergency. However, it doesn’t contain anything other than my Costco Card, my Monzo Card, my Driving License and my Work Access Card. I can’t go without my wallet completely unfortunately
I never carry cash, the only time I get it out is when I get my haircut, which is £20 every 6 or so weeks.
Wow the comments on that article are both hilarious and depressing.
Now that’s impressive…
Yeah… that’s crazy how many people are paranoid.
Might be popular; however, I have been unlucky this week. On two occasions my local shops’ POS systems have broken down and the shops were only taking cash.
You should have seen Café Nero- it was empty!
