Re: Shops are required to accept cash

Businesses can accept whatever form of payment they like in exchange for goods/services. Legal tender only means that a debt cannot be said to be unpaid if an item classed as legal tender was offered for the value of the debt.

In the US, I believe it is the same but there are some states that have passed laws to make cashless stores illegal (Connecticut, Massachussets and New Jersey I think).
