What to expect in September 2022What's Happening Icon 

This month saw the release of results from a survey conducted by the Cash Welcome Group. The survey was conducted in response to the recent announcement by the Reserve Bank of Australia, that it would be actively researching central bank digital currency (CBDC) as a complement to existing forms of money. The survey is ongoing and has presently received results from over 6,000 Australians. The key message from the survey is clear: the majority of Australians do not think a digital currency is needed, and that physical notes and coins should be retained.

ATMIA will continue to work with its partners across the industry, including with the Cash Welcome Group to ensure the message of the importance of maintaining cash as a payment method and push back against attempts to ban or transition away from cash as a payment option. The link to the survey is still open – click here to complete the survey.

Asia Pacific Industry Position Paper: Calling for a mandate on cash transaction below $10,000(effective July 2020)

Position


Some retailers have gone cashless, which denies members of the public the freedom to choose how they wish to pay for goods and services. Cash, as public money, is guaranteed as legal tender and yet cannot be used at these cashless retail outlets. In addition to being public money, cash is a back-up when systems fail or malfunction. With the recent introduction of a $10,000
limit on cash transactions in Australia, it is essential to secure the role of cash as a payment option for transactions below this amount. The ATM Industry Association proposes a mandate for cash as a payment option for in-person transactions below $10,000. To read the full paper click here.

ATMIA in conjunction with Cash Welcome continues our fight against a cashless society to ensure cash remains part of the Australian payment system.

Following months of building a board base support for the cash mandate, to protect the option to use cash at retail establishments, a petition is now open to members of the public to sign. This represents a new phase in the campaign to have cash-secured as a payment option for all citizens. ATMIA will continue to advocate strongly for a cash payment option in order to guarantee long-term security, stability and accessibility of the Australian payment system to all.

To sign the Cash Welcome.org petition click here

ATMIA will continue to reach out to numerous associations and organisations outside the ATM Industry to gain their support for a ban on cashless retail outlets, in order to keep payment choice alive.
