    Card machines use tiny amounts of data, or what we used did, must admit though ours were not mobile units but used landline adsl2 or fibre connections as full stock info and prices were sent down which could be Mbís and 3G sim was a bit too slow. Shops had multiple card readers but a single router. We did use SIM cards as a backup for card payments but sim was only for diagnostics or card transaction. A really busy shop could survive on 1Mb data per month so tiny packets.

    The mobile units may well be different, most of ours were Verifone make although we had Clover as well.

    Didn't know if contactless was charged to retailer or not . Apparently not . Don't think it was about when I sold up .
    But if you are paying for something , on a debit card , which costs 65p the shop is losing money on the deal

    I have not kept much money in a Bank for years.

    My dosh is in Shares, the only downside was it took at least a week to get any sizeable sums transferred into my Bank Account when I needed to. I normally just keep a 'float' of cash available and use the Bank for my own convenience (Standing orders, Direct Debits etc.).

    I have finally got my hands on an old Company Pension payout (not a fortune by the way) and I am just waiting for a sizeable drop in the Markets to bung it in the portfolio with the rest of my dosh. While the Banks have been giving around 1% Interest, I (and 'er indoors) have done far, far better.

    It's surely their decision whether to accept that or a £20 note.

    The trouble is knowing how long its got to last,

    maybe the last bank cheque to the undertaker bouncing because there is no more money left in the account.

    I have to agree with M,learned friend above.

    Although in our case we not had a bank account since 1993.

    In N Ireland things like house rates etc MUST be paid by standing order or bank cheque,clearly states no cash excepted.
    Folk here with no bank are forced to live in council homes with electric card meters and have to que like zombies every tue in the post office for top ups.
