You do realize there are these things in society called vending machines right? But that's besides the point, why do electric chargers need some different method to pay (COINS) than gas?How would paper money work, ex: without an attendant with a cash register? Suppose they could put a reader like on change machines to accept bills, but being outside, bugs etc would just end up getting in. Those things rarely work on a good day in a clean environment let alone outside in the elements. I'm just thinking there should be a way to pay cash, and that's the only way I can think of that could work is some kind of token system. It wouldn't exactly be the most convenient thing though. Like I said, credit/debit card swipe should be the primary option and eliminate the need for a smart phone being needed at all. It's just that paying with cash should always also be an option with any product/service imo.
