Taking Cash Is Still Important, Too

We talk a lot about how important it is to be able to accept debit and credit cards, and how a lot of small businesses still don't. But today we're going to be looking at something different: how important it is to accept cash, too.

Cash Is Still Popular

The Royal Mint recently published the results of a survey indicating that demand for coins actually went up in the last year. While this is surprising with the rise of mobile payments, it does make sense that people still value the easy convenience of cash.

While there probably aren't many businesses out there who are thinking about not accepting cash, the digitisation of many forms of payment and most business tracking means does add some complexity to accepting multiple kinds of payment.

That's why we've made it easy to use the SmartTrade app to accept cash as well as debit and credit cards. We know that people still like paying with notes and coins, and we want you to be able to keep track of all of your payments—not just ones from cards.

In your first month, you get an unlimited amount of cash transactions, and after that, up to 50% of your payments can be in cash. All of those payments will be entered into the online dashboard for detailed tracking of your business.

SmartTrade is committed to helping you take debit and credit cards from your mobile phone, but we know that you still need to take cash payments. We haven't lost sight of that fact, and we want you to know that we'll help you take those payments, too.
