I’m seeing a lot more places not accepting cash at the moment. The public transport network in South Australia has gone cashless, encouraging the use of Metrocards instead (fares are cheaper this way anyway) with paper tickets only available from vending machines. Lots of stores are encouraging cashless transactions - something like 60% of transactions in Australia already cashless. The limit on PIN-less contactless payments has been increased from A$100 to A$250 to reduce the situations where a PIN needs to be entered.
Wondering if anyone else is seeing an increased usage of card/cash during the pandemic? Very good thing here as all notes (bills) are polymer-based here so viruses could potentially survive on the surface longer than paper based banknotes.
Personally, I very rarely use cash for transactions anymore.
