Millions 'will suffer without cash'

Saw this news story this morning:

What do you reckon? Will we ever become a mostly cashless society?

What do you think about the points highlighted in the report that argues cash is important:

  • Struggles in rural communities where alternative ways of paying would be affected by poor broadband or mobile connectivity
  • Difficulties for some people with physical or mental health problems who find it hard to use digital services
  • Rising debt levels, owing to budgeting being easier with cash
  • Lost independence for those who use cash as a lifeline when in difficult or abusive relationships
  • Higher prices for those who are unable to benefit from online services or direct debits

Just interested to hear everyone’s thoughts
