AttributeId: requires_cash_only

We are trying to understand what the cell_phone_store category requires_cash_only attribute type actually represents. If set does it mean the location accepts cash or does it mean that the location is cash only.


If it is 'cash only' wouldn't the other payment options be invalid (pay_check,pay_credit_card,pay_debit_card,pay_mobile_nfc)


Best Regards,

Hi @David L,


  1. The ‘requires_cash_only’ attributeId for cell_phone_store category indicates that the location accepts only cash.
  2. Yes, if the location shows as cash only then the other payment method won’t be applicable for this particular location.
