Why are money cheques being used less?

Money orders and checks are being used less because (1) checks are expensive (due to manual handling costs, paying for the checks themselves, bank charges for providing check imaging, etc.), (2) value derived from checks is not immediately available (though Check 21 has helped in the United States), (3) checks are insecure (there are still people who write bad checks and/or use check kiting schemes) and (4) checks don't reward the user (one does not get points or miles for using a check). The main reason, however, is that alternative payment processes are available to consumers that reduce or remove the four negatives mentioned above. Debit cards (and credit cards) have rapidly replaced checks for traditional purchases (e.g., groceries, drug stores, etc.). and the use of PayPal and other peer-to-peer payment services have replaced checks for many professional services and friend-to-friend payments. Finally, the rise of the Internet and the associated businesses have radically increased the ratio of electronic payments to paper payments.
