Cash was already seeing swindling use as more and more people transition to contactless payment solutions. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, has intensified the movement towards a cashless economy, backed by e-commerce growth and reasonable concerns regarding the handling of paper currency. In official advice to retail staff in response to the pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention promoted the use, where appropriate, of touchless payment alternatives.

According to a survey, close to percent of business owners reported an increase in contactless payments at the end of March. While cash will certainly have its place for numerous years to come, its diminishing market share as a payment tool seems persistent, powered by a younger demographic that is more at ease carrying no money and paying for anything on their smartphones or watches with digital wallets.
