[quote:Anonymous Coward 5449673:MV8yMDY1MDc5XzM0NzQ2ODA2XzVENjVDMUNB] Well, i am in UK and have a little story to tell. I own a small bed and furniture shop in a very local area. I have been open 6 month and trade is somewhat slow because of recesion. I don't have a business bank account because there involes charges. Also charges for any money i put in. Charges for money i take out. Charges for direct debit etc etc. I don't take credit cards because there is a monthly charge for the card machine, a charge for every transaction as well as commission charges on every item i sell. I don't take debit card because of the same reasons. I don't have internet or phone connected to the shop because of steep monthly charges for commercial line and internet. So i just use my mobile (cell) phone for all my work. This means i can answer the phone even when i am out. Because of all the savings i make on not paying charges to the robbing banks, i am able to pass on all the saving to the customers. I am like for like much cheaper than high street stores. Now to the main point i am making.... Every time a customer wants to pay by card i explain to them that the reason i am cheaper is because i pass on the charges i would have had to pay to bank as a discount to the customer. Now here is the suprise that i really did not expect myself. Almost every single customer agreed delightfully with my explanation and came back to buy with cash. During the six month i only lost one customer because of taking cash only. I really don't know how long i am able to keep this going before we become a cashless society, but the reaction of people in this day and age is actually more accepting before the reccesion. What do you all think. I expect things are a bit different in USA as most people there only pay by card. [/quote]
Today I was in a large department store here in the uk and I was asked why I was paying cash!! I asked the cashier why she was asking me she said it was part of a survey they were doing! We're moving one step closer to a cashless society!!!!!
