Every year it’s the same. I tell myself that I’m going to get all my holiday shopping done by the first week of December so that I can sit back, relax, and enjoy the season. But every year without fail, I find myself inevitably waiting until the last minute to complete my shopping list. I hate to admit it, but I’ve even been known to make a Christmas Eve trip to the mall.
But what about this year? I like many others; find myself nervous about the inventory shortages created by the horrific state of the world’s supply chain. I’ll undoubtably have to change my procrastinating ways and either start early this year or find alternative sources to purchase my gifts.
According to a report by Mercari, an online marketplace for U.S. consumers looking to buy and resell, at least 77% of American adults plan to buy at least one secondhand item this holiday season. Facebook marketplace and holiday craft markets are also on track to become more popular than ever as the holidays approach.
As the resale market continues to rise, sellers need to be vigilant when conducting cash transactions. Now more than ever, with economic turmoil and low inventory levels, holiday season is counterfeit money season. Counterfeit detection solutions are essential to safeguarding your pockets and registers. Even as a consumer you must protect yourself from phony bills when doing returns or paying for items with large bills. Once a store that doesn’t use detection products accepts a bad bill, as a consumer you can now accept those bills as change.
