Common Tagging Mistakes

This tag is in replacement of the previous amenity=payment_center, which until now it was used (British English is preferred rather than American English).

Previously (even it remain in the present), many payment centre were erroneously labeled as Atm. This tag, payment_centre, should not be confused with amenity=payment_terminal, which themselves are similar to ATM.

If you know places with this tag, verify if it could be tagged with another tag.
Automated edits are strongly discouraged unless you really know what you are doing!
