No muss, no fees for cash-only businesses
Consider this old saw: "In God we trust, all others pay cash." Some businesses have found that cash — the old-fashioned green paper wadded up in your wallet, next to your well-worn debit and credit cards — is the stuff that profits are made of. For these cash-only or cash-and-checks businesses, plastic isn't fantastic.
