Personal cheques and hard currency are becoming less popular, while increasing investments in FinTech solutions have pushed up innovations such as PayPal, Square, Apple Pay and cryptocurrencies, thereby boosting the cashless age. Contactless card payments have made even smaller value transactions/payments faster and easier. Other major factors driving the world towards a cashless society include launch of chip and pin payment cards, broadening ecosystem of smartphone payments apps, convergence of finance, banking and telecommunications, and rapid changes in custom, culture and regulations elicited by Internet technologies, strong penetration of Internet enabled smartphones etc. Strong venture capital funding of financial technology start-ups and their commercial innovations are disrupting the status quo held by cash. Stringent regulations and policies and sops such as reduction in value-added tax (VAT) rates on card payments are additionally encouraging the evolution of cashless societies. A key reason for the regulatory clampdown on cash in developing countries is the growing burden of cash usage such as costs associated for handling the cash i.e. paper currency printing, deployment/maintenance of ATMs, high risk of money laundering, higher ability to manipulate cash transactions for tax avoidance, breeding of large unorganized sectors that create “shadow economies” that make no contribution to a economy`s GDP growth, inability of the government to impose fiscal controls, reduced productivity of the banking sector in terms of foregone interest, reduced corporate dividends, high counterfeiting costs, among others.
