  • Sounds excellent and well thought out. I'd vote for this as is MikeCollinson 20:06, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
  • This is making sense. Is there any way to join this with fee=yes/no, which is often used for amenity=parking? -- Fröstel 23:37, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
  • fee=yes and free=yes might be too similar, allowing typos to invert the meaning of the tag Ojw 13:29, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
  • What about "free for customers"? Might apply to a parking ramp or wireless internet service associated with a shopping center or hotel. -- SEWilco 18:48, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
  • I agree free/fee could be confusing, and uses 2 tags where 1 will do. I vote for cost=free/paid. We can surely convert existing fee/free tags automatically. Gerv 16:51, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

I suggest using cost=yes, and cost=0 instead of "paid" and "free" respectively. This way the Actual price method and the Free/paid tag sections can work together. In addition, I think this proposal should explicitly update the tags to which it applies. --Hawke 21:55, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

self evident

Some features don't need this tag as it is self evident. You KNOW you have to pay in a toll booth, so as long as actual price is unknown or price data is outdated, this tag should not be used. I like better the usage cost=free and cost=paid as it tells me if I can get into a museum or other for free or if I have to pay. I also suggest a cost=prepaid for places you need to have a ticket to enter but cannot buy the ticket on location. --Skippern 10:24, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Taking into consideration earlier comments we could use cost=free/paid/prepaid for tagging what type payment it is about. We use for example price=EUR 4 per day for tagging that 4€ has to be paid daily. And the custom tags as price:date=2007-09-10, price:HGV=GBP 5 and price:website=http://www.website.com/. --Kslotte 17:30, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

$ $$ $$$

Facebook and Google use $, $$, $$$, etc. Alas they forget to add $0. E.g., a CouchSurfing couch would not want to use "$" even if it meant $0 to $10, because it still implies the possibility of accepting money. Jidanni (talk) 00:36, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
