[Tagging] Credit Recharge in Argentina

Hello. Sorry for my (basic) English and apologies for the previous erroneous mail.

In Argentina, many buses use as a payment system, the contactless card called "SUBE" (more info, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SUBE_card ). 
 The card uses a credit system. It recharges in shops and kiosks in Pesos (Argentina currency). The credit is deducted when boarding a bus.

The label used in OSM to PAY with these cards is payment:sube= *. (With the credit of this card, you can also pay the toll highway and other services in the future.)

 We do not know that labels can indicate the places of recharge credit. By analogy, it could be something as recharge:sube= *, but would this be valid? The word "recharge" would be valid for this in other parts of the world for similar systems?

 I want to clarify that in Argentina, in some cities there are similar cards, so it would also recharge:tarjebus=*, recharge:saeta=*, recharge:sube_misionero=*.

Another clarification: it is not a vending machine, nor an electronic ticket dispenser.

The same tag, recharge:*=*, could also be used to indicate places to recharge prepaid mobile phone credit (known as "Saldo virtual").

Help us!
