Shift4 Corporation has announced the general availability of VT4®, a secure, flexible and feature-rich mobile point-of-sale solution.

Following exclusive use with select merchants, including PGA TOUR, VT4 is now available to merchants in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. VT4 allows merchants to quickly and securely accept payments on any smartphone, tablet, laptop or Internet-connected device.

Merchants need simple, reliable solutions that allow them to securely process payments anywhere, anytime. VT4 delivers:
  • Security beyond compliance: Fills the security gap left open by other mobile payment apps, especially in today’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environments, and includes Shift4’s proprietary security technologies – including True P2PE™ (point-to-point encryption) and TrueTokenization® – to prevent mobile devices from ever handling sensitive cardholder data, to reduce breach profile and to simplify PCI compliance efforts.
  • Complete neutrality: Offers freedom to choose any bank or processor, allowing merchants to shop for the best rates and service without risk of losing transaction history due to a switch. Merchants are also able to choose from a variety of third-party peripheral devices, so the devices that best suit their business can be deployed.
  • Versatility and flexibility: Allows merchants to accept a multitude of tenders from credit, debit and gift card payments to cash, check and member account transactions. Users can also accept split-tender transactions, provide full or partial refunds, retrieve transaction history and modify shopping cart items so users can personalize a customer’s purchase. VT4 is also able to be customized to the look and feel of a merchant’s brand.
  • Enterprise functionality: Supports unlimited users, revenue centers, and devices, which means VT4 fits even the largest and most complex businesses. Administrators can remotely add, disable and configure users and permission levels in real time, while viewing detailed, centralized reports.
  • Dependability: Allows users to conveniently transfer a sale from one device to another or complete a sale in no-signal situations. If a user’s device stops working due to a dead battery, they can simply log in from another device and continue the sale right where it left off. And, VT4 offers merchants peace of mind knowing that our U.S.-based customer service is available to help 24/7/365.

“We have been working with Shift4 as an early adopter of VT4 over the past year, specifically for tournament entry fees for the Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada and PGA TOUR Latinoamèrica, as well as for PGA TOUR Wives Association membership dues, event registration fees and charitable donations," said Steve Evans, SVP information systems, PGA TOUR. "The system was easy to use from an end-user perspective and we were very pleased. In fact, we are looking to further expand the use of this system in the coming year.”

“Many of the mobile payment solutions available today were designed for smaller merchants accepting payments at farmers’ markets and food stands," said Dave Oder, CEO, Shift4. "Very little thought was given to scalability, reliability and security. VT4 is a mobile payment solution designed for the enterprise and provides the speed, security and flexibility that larger organizations require. After seeing success with PGA TOUR and other companies, we are thrilled to make VT4 widely available for all merchants.”
