English term or phrase: vending station
Context:
The example illustrates a consumer making a payment at the vending station and a token being generated to pass the information concerning this payment on to the meter.""

Not sure what a vending station might be. It does not come up on any of the online dictionaries.

I think it is probably an automated teller machine (ATM) which is a guichet de distributeur automatique, but it may be something more specific to prepaid electricity meters and I would just like to check with the experts out there!
