A TIPPING POINT has been reached in terms of how Irish people spend their money, according to the lead author of a new report into cashless payments.

Martin Raymond of London-based strategy firm The Future Laboratory says Ireland’s tech scene and its population demographics will make cash payments a minority in the next half-decade.

He also said the advance of cashless tech is not just about how easy it is to use, it’s also about millenials dispelling notions

So, today we’re asking you: Do you prefer to use contactless payments?


Poll Results:

Yes, it's very handy (9083)
No, I prefer cash (3679)
Not sure (550)
No interest/no opinion (257)
