  1. The impact of plastic money on the financial performance of commercial banks in Zimbabwe

The adoption of plastic money in Zimbabwe has been accelerated by the shortage of cash. Due to shortages of cash, electronic payments became an absolute necessity rather than a payments option. Commercial banks were also literally forced to roll out the service in quick time. Sometimes they did this without the usual caution which accompanies the introduction of new products and services, thereby carrying substantial risk. Transaction failures and other system failure have been a challenge for the use of plastic money in Zimbabwe. Furthermore, government stepped in by putting a limit on the fees which banks can charge for electronic payments. This study seeks to assess the impact of plastic money on the financial performance of the banks. The study engages bank management and employees  to determine how plastic money has affected various measures of financial performance.
