The PAX Q25 is a versatile new PIN pad that can be configured 2 ways: it can be connected to a Point-of-Sale (POS) terminal, accepting and processing all modern payment methods, for either countertop (i.e. checkstand), mounted, or hand-over use cases (i.e. drive-through). In its alternate configuration the Q25 can be configured as an accessory PIN pad device that connects to a PAX payment terminal such as the A80. In this configuration, payment entry is extended from the merchant-facing device to enable direct consumer entry. The Q25 enables payment acceptance of all forms, such as traditional cards, barcodes & QR codes, mobile wallets, and NFC-enabled payments.
