It progressive and good. Embrace technology. Personally, I try to avoid carrying cash as change gets lost or spent on tosh, it helps the bank balance.

It will also speed up service and is more accurate.

I give it 10-15 years until the UK becomes cashless. It will help massively with crime reduction Ė drug money etc.

It wonít help with buying drugs or avoiding paying taxes though. Oh dear, did I say that out loud.

I didn't realise it was legal to refuse cash if that was how a customer wished to pay. I have never believed that the customer is always right, that's an out of date pompous philosophy but dictating to the consumer how they pay for items seems a little, well, dictatorial! Cash used to be the strongest form of currency.

It's legal to refuse a sale for whatever reason you like and you don't have to accept payment in any form; there's no such thing in law as "legal tender" except in the sense that a bank has to recognise it.

Cash is nowadays an expensive and awkward payment to handle because it is immediately negotiable (so attractive to steal), has to be physically taken to a bank or wherever you want to spend it, has to be counted to account for it, and comes only in certain denominations. Now that transaction charges for small purchases by card have dropped sharply and card payment processes have been streamlined by means such as chip and pin and contactless devices those methods are now seen by retailers as cheaper, easier and less risky.

I seldom carry much cash around since many years ago being relieved of my wallet by a scumbag with a knife in Garratt Lane. He got £4.50 for his trouble (and a fairly s*** wallet). Also I now use a distinctive wallet (Eagles one ) so that it can easily be described to police.

Whole countries will soon (next 10 years?) be completely cashless, with Sweden tipped as being the first, followed closely by all the other Scandinavians. BBC article about it;

Personally, I use my card/iPhone(Iím one of those) for near enough every purchase, so this wonít affect my match day experience. However, my old man will be in trouble town, forgetting his pin etc etc.

Whilst I feel everything is going in this direction, I feel like Selhurst Park is not an appropriate venue for old timers to either have to get with the times or basically be unable to buy anything. Horribly short sighted decision.

I do love cash.
But the day that it stops muggy little builders saying to me Ďkeep the price keen mate, it will be pound notesí, will be great. No one wants your cash mate, put it through the bank and pay the vat you little rat.
Annnnnd relaaaaaax.

though we had run out of dosh!

No problem with cashless transaction, however, I reckon it should be made compulsory that Sterling cash payments should be accepted in any f-2-F transction.

This cashless stuff is a bit big brother for me, and i still don't trust internet banking enough to fully commit.

As someone who works in the hospitality and events industry, I cannot tell you how much of a nuisance handling cash transactions is. Itís an incredibly time consuming and therefore expensive method of taking money, especially on the scale of the amount of people attending a football match.

I am unsure of the total amount of outlets at Selhurst but each one would have to have enough change to satisfy everyone that pays with a £10 or £20 note. Trust me, even a lot of those who may have the change will still purchase things with a note as they donít want to stand and count the change when told the amount. If the change runs out it must be transferred from another outlet or from a central hub, so there will be 1/2 people on game day who probably just look after change. The cash from each outlet then has to be counted and checked at the end of the day. There are now high fees to pay for banking cash, regardless of whether itís banked or done by securicor etc. Then there is the trust issue of staff handling cash and alcohol, a potent mix to anyone who is even slightly tempted. Thatís before the increasing amount of forgeries that exist on some notes and certain coins. It adds up to a massive undertaking when card payments are much easier and slicker.

I am always surprised when people say they donít carry a card, we get that sometimes but then I do wonder what would happen if they get a puncture on the way home or have some other emergency that the cash they are covering doesnít cover. Surely itís just a damn sight safer for younger people too?

We work across the UK and each year in London we find that card payments increase by around 10% from the year before. Itís the way of the world.

unless you lose your card, then a nice wad of cash might come in handy!

Or their system has a fault, broadband goes down or there's a power cut etc.

Big brother is exactly why it is going this way.
Also all transactions put in an algorithm to send the right advert to the right person.
