How PIN Pad Sharing Works


PIN Pad Sharing in Hosted Checkout Retail allows you to minimize cost and complexity in your office. Many merchants share an office and a reception desk with other merchants. For example, doctors' and dentists' offices are often set up to share desks and staff in this way. Hosted Checkout Retail lets you continue to work this way while keeping your Payment Transactions separate and secure, and eliminating the need for dedicated PIN Pads per merchant account.
