A new bill introduced in the California Assembly proposes a mandate stating all retailers must offer digital receipts as the default to customers — rather than paper receipts — starting Jan. 1, 2022.  Should the bill pass, the new law would be the first of its kind in the nation. 

As Assemblymember Phil Ting, who introduced the bill, explained, the legislation would make a digital receipt the default, though customers will still be able to opt in for a paper receipt upon request.
