Melbourne Butcher Ditches Cash

In an interesting move, a Melbourne butcher has opened a new outlet that only accepts card payments and no cash.
The butcher claims that the move has been well received by customers and any lost sales are well covered by the time saved by not having to balance the tills at the end of the day and by removing the problem of money handling and hygiene.
Presumably he relies on “paywave” payment technology.
Is this a sign of the times for all cash payments in retail?
