11.6


(Apologies, Sorry Word die, Tiny Hearts die, Sweet Escapes Icons)

The bell on early cash registers (circa 1884) is not marketing. It’s the reason why prices like $1.99 rather than $2.00 exist. The 1¢ change back to the customer forced the cashier to open the till, ringing the bell, and make change. Otherwise the sale could more easily be pocketed by the clerk.
