Not 100% certain yet... From a technical point of view it's no problem. But
if you can already pay by card, you can just pay directly at the POS - no
need for the QR-code purchase. Also, since we promised people to cash out
unused QR code money, I would prefer it, if we don't become an ATM and
limit ourselves to the cash that we received...
