All goods were paid for in cash in the 19th century. Some shops did offer a credit service where goods could be purchased and paid for at a later date perhaps at the end of the month, but when the bill was paid off it was in cash. Shop tills were usually located in a well protected corner of the store. Victorians cities were not crime free and because goods were paid for in cash robbing stores would have been very profitable for thieves. The tills featured on this leaflet are very advanced and even produce receipts for the customers to keep as proof of purchase.
