How common is non-cash payment in your country?

Hey, guys! Do you usually pay with debit/credit card or prefer cash? In my country non-cash payment has become incredibly popular recently. Not only we use cards, but also pay via smartphone applications using qr-code or transfer money to vendors bank account using his phone number.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but even gas stations have been recently required to offer cashless payments, no?

Yep. They might not always have cash and attendants don’t want to waste time.
