ICBC Hedong Sun City Branch visited surrounding merchants to promote and guide merchants to sign the “Commitment Letter Not to Refuse to Accept Cash”
RMB is my country’s legal currency and can be used to pay all public and private debts within the country, and no unit or individual may refuse to accept it. The RMB is crucial to maintaining market liquidity and the normal operation of social and economic activities. Its circulation directly affects the implementation of monetary policy, which in turn affects the stable growth of the economy.
In recent years, with the popularization of electronic payment methods, there has been a phenomenon of individual merchants refusing to accept cash payments. This behavior not only infringes on the legitimate rights and interests of consumers, but also affects the circulation efficiency of RMB, posing a potential threat to the country’s economic stability.
In order to further consolidate the consensus that it is illegal to refuse to accept cash, improve the convenience of the public to use cash, protect the legitimate rights and interests of consumers, optimize the cash flow environment, and improve the public’s satisfaction with bank cash services, ICBC Tianjin Branch quickly implemented the policy in accordance with the work requirements of the People’s Bank of China.
