A KFC branch in Morisset, a suburb in the City of Lake Macquarie, NSW, has become the latest store from the fast food chain to go cashless.
Signs have been erected outside the store to inform customers about the switch to card-only payments.
‘This restaurant is cashless. We accept card only,’ it reads.
The store joins branches in Lakehaven, Hetherbrae and North Wyong in the state that are also cashless.

It’s resulted in backlash from Aussies, with many debating the controversial move on social media.
‘I thought this wouldn’t be allowed, and (that) cash would be accepted everywhere,’ one person wrote.
‘How long do you think it will be before all shops and everything in-between stop cash transactions?’
The ACCC states: ‘Businesses can choose which payment types they accept. It is legal for a business not to accept cash.’
‘However, businesses should be clear and upfront about the types of payments they accept, and the total minimum price payable for their goods and services.’
