Define payment requests
Closed, ResolvedPublic


It would be helpful for vendors to have a standard way to request a payment of a certain amount in a certain currency with a certain reference, so that they don't need to spell out to their customers how to pay with every common client, and risk typos in the reference, and so on.

Having this as an in-band message would be an invitation for spammers to make mass payment requests, since only a few successes might make it worthwhile for them. Instead, the payment request could be just a JSON object, which can be presented variously as a QR code, or maybe a URI, or just text to copy and paste, depending on what's likely to be most useful for that vendor's customers in each context.
