In our everyday lives we use a variety of methods to pay for the things we buy without giving it much thought.  When buying a litre of milk you might pay with cash.  If you are doing a bigger weekly shop you might pay with your debit card.  Students will have come across some of the different ways to pay for goods and services (e.g. cash, debit cards, credit cards, direct debits, standing orders etc) in Strand Three: Lesson One and Lesson Two, when they looked at the services available to people with bank accounts.  In this lesson they will learn that different methods of payments suit different purposes and will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each payment type.
