Try operating any business strictly using cash, try paying you're vendors in cash, try accepting exclusively cash from you're customers. Try paying
you,re employees in cash. Try paying all the taxes associated with a business to the government in cash.
I could go on and on and on.

I quit taking credit cards and when someone might not see my many posted signs, I get this same statement, "If I knew you didn't take credit cards,
I would have never came here, and I won't come here again" (paraphrasing, but all the same)...
Then, I respond, "I understand where you are coming from, but although I don't take cards, I will accept payments and will work with what you can
afford. If your charge would result in even only 10 dollars a month over a few years, or you want to pay in full in just 2 or 3 payments, I will be
happy to work a plan that you can afford. All I ask is you stick to the plan. And best of all, I DON"T CHARGE INTEREST!!!
Sometimes I will then get repeat business from those who initally said they would not return. Sometimes I never see them again.
Most who see the signs either pay cash or leave.
Sure I lose business...sometime alot it seems, but just think if millions of small businesses took this policy. No cards, No usury.
Sure I have been stiffed as well, but those amounts are mostly miniscule and it's still cheap advertising. So, I made my decision and will stay with
it even if it breaks me.
Besides, it started with merchant services taking 3+ times their agreed due. So the cause still comes back to the banking/credit indusrty.
