Dismount ADA/PCI Coverages.
Card and PIN Reader Mounting.
Regulations and standards are in place to ensure accessibility in various public services, including payment systems. Merchants and businesses are strongly encouraged to comply with these accessibility regulations to provide an inclusive and secure shopping experience for all customers.
If you or anyone you know encounter issues with the accessibility of POS card and PIN readers, you may want to bring it to the attention of the business owners or store managers. They may not be aware of the ADA requirements or its enforcement and the challenges some of their customers are facing. They should be more than willing to invest in a POS Dismount checkout mount as its accessible and assistive mounting technology.
Further, it too is the responsibility for a business’s card processor and/or POS equipment provider to provide accessibility POS card and PIN reader assistive mounting technology.
Remember, simplifying the checkout process is not just something consumers desire — they demand it. Making your POS checkout accessible can enhance the shopping experience for all customers, including those with disabilities.
Additionally, raising awareness about accessibility issues within the community and advocating for inclusive practices can contribute to positive change. Businesses often respond to customer feedback and community expectations, especially when it comes to ensuring a welcoming and accessible environment for all patrons. If you see our POS Dismount in one store, others will quickly take notice. Spread the word everywhere loudly.
How many? One ADA Dismount Stand/Mount at minimum, if more than four, one for every fourth and is to be the open checkout at all times of store operating hours. If multi-lane, one per four checkout lanes.
