Personal identification number (PIN) pads are devices that connect to point-of-sale electronic cash registers for debit and credit card purchases. The PIN pad allows the customer card to be accessed and the PIN encrypted before it is sent to the transaction manager.

For the 12 manufacturers listed in the table, a total of 334,039 PIN pads were shipped in 2007 (These data are saved in the PINPADS file.)
