Call for use cases for Payment Request code-a-thon

Dear Web Payments Working Group,
(Benjamin, Jeremy, Jonathan, Danny, Laura, Kacie….see below regarding bill pay)

As we recently announced [1], we have begun to plan for a “code-a-thon” on 1-2 April 2020 in Dublin.

Our goal is for participants to demonstrate through code that Payment Request, Payment Handler,
and related APIs may be used to create compelling checkout experiences for a variety of payment
method and authentication flows.

The co-Chairs and I think that it will help us focus during the two days if we can identify in advance
use cases that WPWG participants consider important. 

To make this request more concrete, here are some initial suggestions:

* Open banking APIs with strong customer authentication 
* Card-on-file integrated into Payment Request (use case from Airbnb)
* Payment Request used as part of account creation (use case from Airbnb)
* Bill pay. I have been wondering whether bill pay use cases are similar to retail payment use cases, and if not, why not.
  It could be interesting to see some experimentation around the use of PR API for bill pay. 

We look forward to hearing from you,
