The Cashless Journey

Over the past few years there has been a surge of people using some form of digital or “cashless” payment for everyday needs – from buying groceries at Whole Foods to purchasing their “must-need” items from
Cashless is all around us. With credit card terminals allowing shoppers to use more than a debit or credit card to complete their transactions, the emergence of Apple Pay and Samsung Pay as “cashless” transaction systems are here to stay. In fact, a recent study on shopping trends noted that the typical American uses some form of cashless payment 4,000 times year on average. This includes online transactions, in-store transactions, mobile transactions and person-to-person cashless transactions.

Need a ride?

Uber is one of the pioneers when it comes to the adoption of the “cashless” payment system. Uber took it a step further by allowing the “rider” to pay for their pickup via the Uber app, making the payment process simple and safe for the “rider” by not being hindered due to a lack of cash on-hand to utilize Uber’s services. 

Is there an app for that?

There are countless “person-to-person” cashless payment apps out there today. I’m sure you have used PayPal a time or two, but they aren’t the only option anymore.

Cash Isn’t King

The era of having cash in your wallet or purse or even going to the ATM (if you can find one) is over. Just like the cell phone ended the need of pay phones on the corner block, cashless payments are bringing an end to the phrase of “Cash Is King”. “Convenience Is King” should be the new phrase, based off of the numbers. Being able to pay for what you want or need without physical cash or even a piece of plastic is simply more convenient while still being secure.
