>>68907981
Most banking apps are pretty bad, most of them use awfully broken 3rd party mechanisms to associate payments with people such as with phone numbers, emails etc. Also payments are slow as hell, especially between certain banks.

With Monzo your friends list populates from their phone number in your address book, you tap once to send them cash and it arrives instantly. It's really helpuful for nights out, if you grab a meal someone can just pay using their monzo contactless and then everyone can just send them their share. Same with buying drinks/rounds at the pub.

>>68908323
>I honestly have no clue how these massive banks manage to fuck up something so simple
They've not had any innovation or competition in a long time and these new startup banks are crushing it with good online apps. You can msg each other and track stats and all sorts of things with Monzo. It's also free to use you just dl the app, take a video of yourself requesting an account and submit that and a day later you have an account and a few more days later your card arrives in the post.

Then you can scan in the card with google pay and you dont even need to carry the card with you just your mobile for contactless payments.

Like that one time way back when Sears, I think it was Sears IIRC, sent coupons to a young woman for pregnancy and baby related products. The woman's father, since she still lived with her parents, was furious that Sears was sending his daughter these coupons although she wasn't pregnant. Sears apologized. Few months later the father found out she was indeed pregnant and wondered how exactly Sears knew. Turns out whatever customer loyalty card related gimmick they had relied on an algorithm to predict what products a customer would need or at least want based upon their shopping habits and her recent shopping habits had somehow been enough to tell that she was pregnant

And as for bank shit, they pay YOU to hold your money. Of course you're still a colossal idiot if you just let banks hold your large denoms because you could be making MORE money than that less-than-risk-free-rate they're offering, but still, what the fuck interest are YOU talking about, poorfag?

If you think you're insulated from a catastrophic market collapse or similar because you use cash, you're monumentally retarded. When there's no work, there's no work. If the currency you use loses its value, it doesn't matte if it's in a bank or not.

The only way your sentiment makes sense is if you operate in a self-sufficient way. Do you grow your own food? Rear your own livestock? Do you sell the fruits of your labour or otherwise trade for things you need that you can't produce yourself? If not, you're just another retarded ideologue that has no idea what he's actually talking about.

Now the NYC subway is going to allow the use of contactless credit cards so the banks are prepping up to replace all the chip credit cards they sent to us to chip + contactless. Four of my credit cards (2 american expresses, 1 Chase, 1 Citi) are being replaced with contactless this week.

What the merchant pays is a fee to their merchant acquirer. This varies based off of the industry, the exact merchant (bigger businesses can negotiate better deals with the card networks), whether or not the card is present, whether or not the card offers rewards, etc... most merchants pay what is called interchange plus pricing, where it's 0.1% above interchange.

In turn, merchant acquirers that perform card acquisitions for stores then send over the agreed upon interchange fee to Visa, mastercard, discover, etc... this varies, but in Europe this is typically below 0.2% of transaction. In the US it's typically somewhere between 2-3.5% of the transaction amount.

Now, in the example of $2.19 at McDonalds in the US, both the cash user and the credit card user pay $2.19. The cash user is out of the cash immediately, while the credit card user pays it later.

If the credit card user pays his statement balance in full each month, then he pays no interest charges on his purchases. He just pays the $2.19 for the McDonalds. If he DOESN'T pay his bill in full each month, then he gets charged interest on that purchase.

Ah but what about that 2-3%? Merchants are not generally allowed to surcharge credit users in the US. They can provide a cash discount (e.g. 10 cents off per gallon of gas for cash), or a minimum amount to use a credit card ($10 is the highest you can go for a credit card minimum), but if they choose to accept your card they cannot surcharge you for the amount of credit card processing. Thus, the cost of the "swipe fees" gets borne by all people at the store who choose any payment method, including cash or debit.

Swipe fees are controversial for a variety of reasons, US style credit card rewards and benefits would be untenable without them, and the merchants get benefits in not handling cash and in that credit users are traditionally more affluent and spend a higher average amount per transaction.

We still use it, mainly for small purchases on the go like street food and soda (most stores will give you shit if you try to use your debit card to pay less than 2000CLP (about 3USD)) and also taxis. For other means of public transport we use pre-paid cards (the "bip" card is used for the subway, the bus and some trains) but it's not universal, it only works on our main cities. Other, smaller cities continue to use cash for all public transport. Other than these 2 cases, most things are paid using debit cards and online purchases. NFC payment exists but not many people use it.
In conclusion: almost exclusively used for small purchases and taxi rides in big cities, used for most small purchases and transport on smaller cities. For everything else we use debit/credit cards.

I don't understand. Does no one realise that cash is the best option in terms of privacy? Why do people pretend that cashless is something good, when all it means is that a) the government could technically just steal all your money with a stroke of the keyboard and b) advertisers can get your payment data to see exactly where you buy what for what price.

Cashless is literally a privacy nightmare and I am glad to live in the one european country where more than 50% of transactions are done in cash still and where people are extremely suspicious of cashless.

USA here. I'm 32. I never have cash on hand, Bluebird is my primary checking account (I ordered 2000 checks when they said they were going to start charging 20 bucks for every 40 checks), which helped speed this along.

My friends, though, insist on using a local "free" checking account, where they pay a king's ransom every year in fees. A fee to withdraw money. A fee to use a check. Fees to order checks. Fees to use billpay (beyond 2 free billpays per month).

They are the type of people to use Straighttalk, too.

I lived there; I used to just take 2000RMB out of the ATM, carry 400 and pay cash for everything like an old man when I went out since I also couldn't use the money features of Wepay or Alipay (so no hongbao either). If I took money out from my Australian account at the ATM it was a $5 withdrawal fee, which is still way better than going to a foreign exchange place since it's just the $5 flat fee.

Denmark.
I have tried to do a cash-only month challenge, but it is really hard.
There are several places where you can't pay with cash, some places are more expensive if you pay with cash and getting the cash is hard too.
The only way to do it is by not buying too many places in that month, and that is not sustainable.
Even person-person payments are not done in cash here.
The whole tap to pay thing have made small purchased a hassle when you use cash. I really want cash to be a thing again.

Boomers and tech illiterate people wouldn't be able to do anything online only.

I'm 30 years old, and when I was born people were discriminated against in their career options by the authorities, terrorized by the secret police or straight up arrested for saying or doing the slightest thing considered wrong by the socialist regime at the time. Before the socialist regime we had a national socialist regime that deported and gassed people for their race, opposition or even behavior. Anyone who hasn't learnt anything about their privacy from this is an absolute retard, and I'll start trading my neighbors apples for potatoes before living a cash free life and helping create a record of my entire purchase behavior and to some degree even my movement.
