It varies.

At some stations, you can just choose "pay inside" at the pump, pump your gas, and then go inside to pay. (Don't forget that last step! ;-)

At some, you first go inside and have them run the card through their machine - which presumably doesn't have an extra scanner on it. But from there it's just as if you had ran the card yourself at the pump, so you don't have to go back inside afterward. (Well, maybe if you want a paper receipt, but it seems like half the time you have to go inside for that anyway.)

At some, you go inside and they hold your card while you pump the gas. Then you have to go back in to actually pay for the gas and get your card back.
