Cards and apps are easy payment methods. They are considered safe, convenient and the primary source of payment. But what about cash? Cash payment is here to stay. There are many businesses, retail outlets, spaza shops, etc., where favouring cash has deep cultural roots – it stands for simplicity and trust.
