Consumers will be able to use a “click and collect” service to access cash directly from shops under a scheme being piloted.

The Cash in Shop service is coming to the UK after previously being trialled in Switzerland.

The pilot scheme will launch in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, in March, and those behind it described it as the first stage in a national rollout.

Customers will be able to use an app to see which shops have cash available to pre-order for collection in minutes, free of charge. There will be no requirement to make a purchase in the shop.

The app could also allow customers to have cash delivered to their doorsteps along with their food orders.

Cash in Shop is part of a wider initiative called the Community Access to Cash Pilots (CACP) scheme, which is working across the UK to trial and test various ways to help keep cash sustainable.
