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

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.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and in the interest of our industry stakeholders, ATMIA has changed the Sydney event to a virtual platform, this event will be on 8th-10th December and we encourage all industry stakeholders to diaries these dates as we release further details in the coming weeks. Feel free to contact Dana Benson anytime for further information regarding sponsorship packages.
