    Abstract

    A cashless society is one of the biggest potential changes existing today. With the role of technology, mobile devices are continuously evolving and they have the ability to significantly enhance the payment infrastructure which is used within today’s society. This project looks to examine the concept of a cashless society, the benefits and limitations which will be introduced through its adoption and whether the large social change will create a generational divide. This project will further investigate the role of mobile technologies, devices and contactless payments in leading us towards a cashless society. The methods of primary and secondary research will be conducted to allow this project to meet its aims.
    This project presents evidence that the move towards a cashless society is beginning, along with the benefits and limitations which will impact individuals. This project further identifies the reality of a generational divide as a result of an emerging cashless society and the challenges faced to rectify the issue. Mobile technologies and devices have the potential to lead us to a cashless society. However, this project has identified several challenges which must be addressed before technology can lead such an important change.
