ADA Point-of-Sale Checkout

In short, - ADA Title III businesses are required to have an ADA checkout whether a Mom and Pop shop, a regional or franchise all the way to big box brands regardless, -if you only have one checkout or thirty checkouts in the place of business. Attended, Self-Checkout, Unattended.

TITLE II are State, County, City, Township etc. It can get a little mixed, for example, a Social Security Administration Building is Federal which falls under ABA/508 (ICT) but is also in TITLE II space serving a TITLE III environment, - as to where say a state motor vehicles department is Title II State, in a Title II space serving a title III environment. All are still under ADA requirements by law.

No matter what, all business entities are subject to ADA compliance and being the point-of-sale checkout is the most used place on earth outside a person's home, it is vital that the checkout is fully ADA compliant.

The best way to tell you have accessibility at checkout requirements, is if your place of business is required to have ADA parking. If it does or even if it is shared for instance, in a plaza etc, then yes, you are required to have an ADA Checkout.

In summary, -ADA building code, Visa acceptance and the PCI compliance requirements for privacy use are also in play as well as assistive-technology mounting for the card reader terminal device in addition to the ADA/ABA/508 ICT.

Be aware, non-accessible is viewed as discrimination which does cause additional legal problems and the ADA fines start at $75,000 per location. And not being ADA accessible (ADA checkout) card reader (PCI) mounted takes the building and your business occupies is out of ADA building code. This affects you, the building owner (if renting/leasing) and State. County and City with additional problems.

If you are California based or have locations in California, additionally you have CAL-FIN 13082 and UNRUH ACT which has additional fines discrimination issues and other legal additions atop the ADA ones.

Your customers deserve better at your checkouts.
