    I only usually get paper money, or bank transfer. Sometimes paypal, and seldom cheque.

    Change is ok with in reason but mostly I don't have this problem. I remember years ago a restraunt wanted to pay me £15 in 10 pences that I refused. Coppers is taking the pee.

    I don't think I'd mind too much off a domestic customer, especially some old dear but I'd never accept it off a business customer

    Not had that problem, at least not on a regular basis anyway. Most of my pricing is around the paper variety. One thing I often do though is charge 9 instead of 10 which makes it seem cheaper,and then they usually tip the pound.:thumbsup:

    I put all small change in a jar and then bag it up and bank it when I've got enough, I keep some for the parking in town.

    It's taking the piss but as you say money is money. I use most of it at the self service checkouts at supermarkets or at parking meters.
