[origin: WO9722919A1] The disclosed apparatus is a stand-alone integrated smart card circuit chip card (20) vending machine (10). It accepts bills in DOLLAR 1, DOLLAR 5, DOLLAR 10, DOLLAR 20 and DOLLAR 50 denominations and/or credit cards and issues stored value smart cards (20) for the value requested. It can also telephone a center to validate credit card transactions or send diagnostic and statistical reports. This invention has the capability to read and write to a card (20) while it is in the dispenser stack (24) therefore the card (20) has no value while in the dispenser and is not released until payment is received, that is, the cards (20) are encoded in real time before they are issued.
