Is the world ready to say ‘good riddance’ to cash?
By Marcel Woutersen
Although the use of cash varies between countries, there are signs that point to the possible end of banknotes and coins. In Sweden for example, for only 13 percent of payments cash is used. According to scientists at Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology – the largest and oldest technical university in Sweden – that percentage could work its way down to zero in less than five years.
We believe that Instant Payments will become the new normal, and that Instant Payments are going to revolutionize the way Europeans pay. At first it will start to develop among individuals for person-to-person (P2P) payments. But ultimately, Instant Payments will be introduced in a wide range of use cases.
equensWorldline developed four Instant Payment use cases, from solutions for consumers (P2P and online) and merchants (point-of-sale), up to solutions for corporates (optimized liquidity and cash management).
In this video Mark Munne, Senior Product Marketing Manager at equensWorldline, explains how equensWorldline is taking Instant Payments beyond the obvious. He briefly explains some possible use cases: from P2P and online, to POS terminal solutions and corporate cash management.
