Busker rejects cash – only accepts card payments

August 27, 2010

A busker in London has started to refuse cash payments and is now only accepting money for his performances via credit cards.

Peter Buffery plays on a guitar which has been adapted to feature ‘contactless technology’ allowing passers-by in Soho Square to ‘swipe’ a card and give him money.

Okay so it’s a publicity stunt by Barclaycard, however the idea of “swiping” for payment for small amounts certainly will be something that businesses will need to consider for the future.
