Cashless China's Obsession on Barcode / QR Code Payments



Cash or the Chinese Yuan (RMB money is slowly going extinct in China. For real.

You can see the blue and green barcode / QR codes for payment scanning.
I cannot be bothered having cash with me. I have always preferred to pay via card. Not credit card but a debit card. The Netherlands, for example, is one of the major cashless societies in the world I believe. I am a great example of a cashless citizen. I only have cash money with me when I travel abroad, for just-in-case situations.
My experience however in China was proved to be in a different league. Card payment has never become mainstream in China. Instead, the country is obsessed with paying by mobile phone through QR codes.
