"With the growth of tap-and-go payment systems and mobile payment technology, use of cash is slowing and we’re seeing that right across our network," said Domino’s Australia and New Zealand CEO Nick Knight.

"We’re now heading towards a very real future where the legal tender could be solely electronic, so it’s important that we remain digitally agile and continue to meet consumer demands."

Five stores across Australia will be trialling the model; Newtown (NSW), Coffs Harbour (NSW), Wauchope (NSW), Calamvale (QLD) and Surfers Paradise South (QLD).

Domino's has stated that the participating stores will accept "all forms of payment", except for cash. This includes card payments, PayPal, Apple Pay, AndroidPay, eftpos to door and Instagift.

It's worth noting that Domino's T&Cs don't mention accepting cryptocurrency. We're going to assume that cheques are out too. So it's not quite all forms of payment, but we get the company's point.

So if you have a penchant for getting tanked on a Friday and heading down to your local to wave around a $5 note in exchange for a thin-crust pepperoni, your days may be numbered.
