We currently have 26 credit card questions questions and 47 payment questions. I'm not sure how much overlap there is between the two. At least some of the credit card questions could be tagged with , but I'm wondering if the site would benefit from a new tag. I'm thinking this would help our search engine optimization and programmers looking into implementing such things.

What do you think? Good tag?

It seems there's some interest in this, but I'm unsure of a good name. Which would be best?

    \$\begingroup\$ Well, we have an email and an authentication tag @Pimgd. We also have tags like fizzbuzz. It's offers (IMO) a useful categorization. \$\endgroup\$ – RubberDuck Aug 8 '14 at 18:48

I would love this tag, I find all these questions and answers entertaining and educating.

The name itself is not too obvious, so perhaps some more thought could be put in the actual name.

, or might be broader and also have subjects like bitcoin.

If code was related to a then I would agree that the tag was useful.

Credit cards are not a payment system though, so none of those questions would qualify.

would be things like Moneris, EFT, Paypal, etc. I would expect the tag to relate to the Wikipedia entry at least a little bit:

The payment system is an operational network - governed by laws, rules and standards - that links bank accounts and provides the functionality for monetary exchange using bank deposits

I don't believe any Code Review questions referenced in the question have anything to do with payment systems, other than the following:

The rest have to do with and .

I don't believe the questions above have enough content specifically related to payment systems to make the tag worthwhile.
