I have run my own business for near twenty years now. We have retail sites that sell plant and tress and outdoor accesories. My point is this; Up until three to four years ago, my locations took in some cash, but mostly checks, and about thirty to forty percent in credit cards.
In the last two years, the use of credit cards is now up to eighty percent. Cash is less and less frequent. The ones who write checks are usually the older customers.
