San Francisco bans cashless-only stores



San Francisco has become the latest city in the United States to ban stores refusing payment in cash.
Shop owners say the shift to exclusively digital payments is good for business. But supporters of the new legislation say refusing cash is discriminatory.

Al Jazeera’s Gabriel Elizondo reports from New York.

  1. Counting cash bothers you? A cup of coffe costs 2 dollars

  3. if im poor, i will not spend money to overpriced coffee.

    why not ban private airplane? or some exclusive/member only place.
    its also discriminate against poor people.

  4. Good
    Skip the Ice cream
    U r already too fat
    And on the road to diabetes

  5. this is total bullshit and only serves the rich and banks and not the middle working class folks. Vote progressive.

  6. If its cashless employee cannot get tips anymore because the money goes straight to the company account.

  7. Cash is still the best. Especially good for managing your money whereas just card/phone it is simply easy to overspend. Swipe here, tap there and you wonder where all the money went. And frankly, another tracking parameter used by companies.

  9. Boo hoo! You can't stop progress.

  10. People who make minimum wage in India have credit and debit cards !!! There are beggers on the streets in India who have P.O.S. on them just in case you say you do not have change !!! …only in america poor people are financialy discriminated !!!

  11. Cash is invented by China.
    Cashless lifestyle is also invented by China.

  12. 0:38 The card reader is made in China.

  13. why does the host talk like that?

  14. Remember the saying…Cash is King…..

  15. I think it's time to start my hacking. Lots of opportunity out there to take.

  16. Someday no credits cards will be accepted either. Get chipped or starve to death.

  17. Wow Trump is really taking the government back from the corporation's. Good!!!

  18. these business who dont accept cash are straight up discriminating against those who are in financial troubles. If you support non cash payments only, please think about those who dont have a card

  19. MY MOTHER AND I WENT TO A PRESUMABLY LOCAL RETAIL STORE WHICH HAPPENED TO BE RUN BY IMMIGRANTS. WHEN WE CHECKED OUT SHE PAID WITH HER CARD AND TWO DAYS LATER GUESS WHAT? SHE RECEIVED A NOTIFICATION THAT HER CARD WAS JUST USED TO MAKE A PURCHASE FOR 600.00 FOR SOME MIDDLE EASTERN ONLINE STORE. THESE PEOPLE WANT CASHLESS SO THEY CAN ROB US BLIND. HOW WAS THAT FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE?? STEALING FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND ATTEMPTING TO BRAINWASH US INTO SUBMISSION.NOPE!!! I'LL STILL USE MY GOOD OL GREEN BACK AMERICAN BILL!!

  20. Should ban cash only stories.

  21. China is already cashless, the whole country. America is 3rd world country.

  22. Cashless only BS hurts regular people. Works in some other countries, it’s not a good idea here.

  23. This is absolute bullshit. A business should decide whether or not to accept cash or not. What about airlines or car rental agencies. I personally would like to challenge this bullshit.

  24. Hipsters opening trendy burger joints and coffee shops with their parent's money telling us how to live our lives!!

  25. open a bank account for everyone with money in it and make them use cards then

  26. You can't explain Privacy to people that don't value it . Being tracked at all times is not seen as bad by them and neither is the government being able to monitor and turn off your purchasing power at the press of a button . Devices that listen to every word you say are being brought home so people can ask it to turn on lights or order a pizza . Convenience instead of Freedom . When you don't pay for it , you don't know the cost – Freedom that is , not Credit Card bills .

  27. Gvt needs to tell banks they can't charge for excessive cash deposits. Some months i pay almost $100 in cash deposit fees. Wtf is that man?

  28. Physical cash is going to become obsolete anyways in the near future anyways. Might as well embrace it.

  29. lol! more's Zionists totalitarian complete CONTROL'S OR CONTROL'S AGAIN!.. POWER'S Grabbing, crackdowns etc again. LOL!..

    WEAPONIZED 5/6 g Technocratic too. aka death Ray!
    Zionists maximum prison wall's
    Brian's implants chip's etc too.. aka tip of the icebergs & winning too.

  31. lol! no right's, no freedom, no privacy led etc again.. LOL.. HOME OF The ZIONISTS ENSLAVEMENT OR COWARDS led marches on.

  32. Whats with the misleading city name? you're topic is more New Jersey and you briefly just stated SF banning as a fact without any substantial background story. CHANGE the title. I like you guys but i'll call you out on your clickbait.

  33. Cashless is bolux i love to oder a tea in cashless if they don't take cash leave to them in the counter good enough for the store they have to get rid of the tea themselves

  34. pro cash, wallets, bags, key's, physical disc & used car's rules.. Allah's AKBAR

  35. fake flops paedophile Zionists California state's or so called independence led strikes again. lol.

  36. What an idiot he actually wants to pay that 3% credit card service fee

  37. Do what are you crazy why ?

  38. I won't shop at a cashless store even though I don't use cash as often as my card.

  39. meanwhile in China, they encourage cashless

  40. I use my credit and debit cards all the time, BUT there should always be a cash option. Just in case of emergency.

  41. No what this really means is people can not count back charge and well with a business using only cards can bump up tips and we all know that thief's love jobs were they can still your information and use it…

    I wonder how many credit card thefts him or his employees have done?

  42. No reason to ban cash less stores these idiots are guaranteed to go out of business on their own from lack of customers and the amount of credit card fees all businesses have to pay. 2-3% of all transactions goes straight to credit card companies.

  43. When you use a credit card you are : PAYING USURY. The merchant is charged 3% for the transaction, which YOU pay. You open yourself up to IDENTITY THEFT. Do you know where the information about your card number will end up? And you lose FINANCIAL PRIVACY. Now there is a record of where you were, what you spend and what you purchased. Do you feel good about that? Get rid of your credit cards and start using cash like an adult!
