The Kanoman Market in Cirebon, Java is a traditional market with many small stores in a large building. Hand-written price tags were placed next to the goods lined up in front of the stores, and all shoppers pay in cash. There were no credit card readers here, and no QR codes for making payments. There were no barcodes on the products, so the shopkeepers had to calculate the bill by hand or with a calculator.
Since it was not a cashless payment system, change was exchanged after each transaction. Looking at them, it seemed as if they were exchanging conversations about how they would give a discount. However, I didn't know if this kind of conversation is the same here in Indonesia as it was in Japan. I don't understand a word of Indonesian. Even if I stood casually next to the shoppers and listen in, I could not understand a word of what kind of conversation was going on. Too bad.
