Word on the street: The future for cheques


Kiwibank is going cheque-free from tomorrow. It will no longer accept cheque deposits or provide bank cheques. Business reporter Shawn McAvinue asked people in Green Island and central Dunedin two questions.

Q1: If all banks went cheque-free, would you miss it as a form of payment?

Q2: Is the time right to expect people to make payments via alternative methods, such as internet banking?
