Do cashless restaurants discriminate against the poor?

Fast-casual places are ditching cash for safety and efficiency. Critics say this shuts out poor people, some immigrants and those who just prefer cash.

Source: www.washingtonpost.com

The global cashless movement has reached Washington, where a growing number of fast-casual establishments and other spots are saying no to greenbacks in favor of plastic and mobile payments. Sweetgreen, the national salad chain founded by Georgetown University graduates, went cashless in most of its locations last year. Other cashless spots include a Menchie’s frozen-yogurt shop downtown, the posh Barcelona Wine Bar on 14th Street NW and the Bruery beer store at Union Market.

 

Soon, they may be breaking the law.

 

The decision to go cashless also has broader implications in the global battle between the credit-card and ATM industries.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Visa has been a major booster of the cashless movement. The credit card company in March awarded 50 businesses $10,000 each for rejecting cash payments and has released reports touting the benefits of a cashless society.

 

 
Comments: This will be a very interesting fight over the next decade.  Governments obviously want no cash, as an all electronic economy means every transaction everywhere is known to it.

The push back due to the unbanked was quite predictable.  However, when you see a country like India has gone cashless in many spots — well, if they can figure out how to do it, we should be able to figure out how to do it.  I believe even poor countries in Africa have large cashless segments now.

This really is not a battle of if, but rather when.

Shake Shack Not Going Cashless After All

Half the customers didn’t know how to order on the iPad, a Google commenter wrote

Source: www.eater.com

Here is some insight on cash in restaurants. Shake Shack backed off of it but still is working towards cashless. The CEO reasons are: 

 

Safety: We’ve mitigated the very real security risks associated with having large quantities of cash on-site, so we can become a safer place for our team and our guests.

Efficiency: We’ve streamlined our operations, eliminating cash-counting, and facilitating easier shift transitions (team members can jump on the register without the time-consuming security steps involved in cash-tray change-outs.)

Speed: Without handling cash and making change, we can serve more guests in far less time, meaning you spend less time waiting in line to place your order and pay.

POS SDK Square – With New SDK, Square Wants to Open New Scenarios for POS | PCMag.com

By opening up the platform, the tech giant is empowering users to bring cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) to workflows it has never serviced before.

Source: www.pcmag.com

Before launching the SDK into the wild, Square worked with a number of select partners to build custom POS solutions by using Square’s technology. The aforementioned Shake Shack has recently been testing cashier-less stores, which it calls the "Shack of the Future," in New York City. Working with the development agency Fuzz, the burger chain built a self-service kiosk that let customers order their food and pay all by themselves. Even though it used Square’s infrastructure of security and payment support, these experimental restaurants were able to drive down wait times with a solution that was effectively customized just for them.
