Has anyone asked you the question – "How much cash do you have in your wallet and what will you use it for?" – this is fast becoming a real question as individuals join the ranks with companies who do no transactions using cash. Payments are made electronically at the click of a button. Welcome to the global cashless economy.

"Many use apps such as Uber, or Apple Pay, so based on current progress we (Canada) appear to be heading in that direction (a cashless economy), but we’re not quite there" - Dr Amit Monga, Managing Director, Technology Innovation and Investment Banking, CIBC World Markets

"In Sweden, over the period 2011 to 2016, cash withdrawals have decreased by about one-third, in terms of both number and value. This indicates that the use of cash has decreased markedly. At the same time as cash usage has decreased, card payments have increased by approximately 50 per cent over the last five years." – Payment Statistics, Monetary Policy Department, Riksbank, Sweden, Oct 2016

"Latin America has emerged as a strong newcomer to mobile money; three mobile money services have today crossed the 1-million active customer milestone." - Jose Sanin, Digital Financial Services Regulatory Specialist, GSMA (Groupe Speciale Mobile Association)

With this global move to a cashless economy, corporations are adapting to ensure customer retention, as well as to maximize revenue per customer and reduce cost per transaction.

Some of the cashless trade mechanisms are:
  • Credit card payments
  • Electronic payment systems
  • Cryptocurrencies
  • Mobile money
  • Barter trade – trade of goods and services while conserving bank balances
