The External PIN Debit tender allows PIN debit transactions run on a completely separate standalone terminal to be recorded on a Clover device. This was useful on Station 1 prior to the availability of the FD40. Merchants could create an order on the Station, accept payment by PIN debit card on a separate terminal, and then record the payment on the Station. Within the Clover system, an external PIN debit transaction is purely a bookkeeping function; no message is sent to the payment network and no funds flow as a result of recording the transaction within Clover (allow funds flow as a result of the transaction on the external terminal).
