There is a large variety of consumer electronics and a whole range of products from the various companies. If you would like eat outside, you can choose from among the top-end restaurants that give you a great ambience and then end up with a huge check. If you want to eat out and not spend too much, there are loads of fast food and multi-cuisine restaurants that might catch your fancy. Then, with regards to clothes stores, you can decide whether you want to buy clothes from non-descript stores or go in for a branded outfit. We are getting inundated by all kinds of options. It all depends on what you are going to buy. Of course, if you are buying something, you must consider how you will be paying. There are many ways in which we can settle bills nowadays. Perhaps, we as consumers are really being indulged these days. Go to a salesperson at any supermarket and be prepared for the question: "How do you wish to pay sir? By cash or by card?" Even a few decades ago the only acceptable mode of payment was that of cash. Every store owner preferred this mode of payment primarily because of its tangibility. When you were paying in cash, the seller reaped the benefits of immediate payment. He did not have to worry about how long he might have to wait. Before credit cards became so very popular, check payment was the preferred mode of payment when it came to larger sums of money. However, this kind of a payment mode had its own set of cons. The seller would have to wait till the check cleared. And back in the days before banks were fully computerized, this did not progress to fast. Moreover, you could never be certain that the buyer had money in the bank. After all, not all buyers were honest blokes. The emergence of credit card companies has added to the convenience of life for both buyer and seller. Here were pieces of plastic that were very valuable. All that the buyer had to do was get it swiped by the

seller to pay for his purchases. As for the seller, he was assured that the credit card company would pay him the money that was owed to him. I will agree that there is a demand for paper money over credit cards. However, credit cards will soon reign supreme as the preferred mode of payment.
