The vending machine should use a card like an ATM/gift card, not accept cash.  You should be able to "charge" the

can purchase it with the card.  If there is no money on the card, a person can add cash to the card via a web portal 
somewhere.   Scenario:  remote hands guy arrives on site, needs an SFP, card doesn't have enough money on it, calls 
me, I can add the cash to the card, he can purchase the SFP and leave the card in the space for the next time it is 

Actually pricing should be 8 bits, 16 bits, or maybe 32 bits for the really important stuff.

Will IANA accept netblock transfers as an exchange medium for
datacenter goodies vending machine payments? ...  ;-)
