Status: Draft (under way)
Proposed by: Rw
Tagging: shop=cash
Applies to: node Node area Area
Definition: A shop offering cheque cashing or short term loans.
Rendered as: A cent symbol?
Drafted on: 2009-09-10


A non-bank, non-credit union that offers "payday loans", short term credit or cheque cashing services.


Cash shops are not banks and may be regulated differently or unregulated. The financial services they offer will be very limited, usually immediate cheque cashing or short-term "payday" loans. Service charges and interest charges may be unusually high.


Add a node Node tagged shop=cash in the center of the shop. Larger shops may be mapped as an area Area tagged as shop=cash.

Additional Attributes

Tag Description
name=* The name of the shop.
addr:housenumber=* The street address of the shop.
addr:street=* The street the shop is on.
addr:city=* The city the shop is in.
addr:postcode=* The postal code that the shop is in.

Cash shops should be rendered as a monetary symbol, perhaps a "cent" symbol to differentiate it from a legitimate / regulated bank. They should only be rendered at very high zoom levels.
