As one of the world’s largest independent gateways, Shift4 Corporation stands head and shoulders above the competition, providing comprehensive enterprise payment solutions that cut costs, simplify PCI requirements, and provide real security for transaction processing.

Leveraging connectivity to every major processor, Shift4’s DOLLARS ON THE NET® product serves as a real-time, Web-based payment gateway between a point-of-sale (POS)/property management system (PMS) and the bank or processor of choice. It collects and transmits transaction data to speed up ticket processing and enhances the overall customer experience. Shift4 supports interfaces to hundreds of leading POS systems/PMSs.

DOLLARS ON THE NET is great for hotels or franchises with more than one profit center (front desk, restaurant, gift shop, spa, etc.), ensuring their transactions are processed quickly, accurately and securely without inordinate fees, downgrades or chargebacks. Best of all, Shift4 offers all of DOLLARS ON THE NET’s security and advanced functionality to users at no additional charge.

DOLLARS ON THE NET not only provides direct cost savings to hoteliers, it also includes 4Go Secure Suite® with TrueTokenization® to alleviate the burden of processing, transmitting or storing cardholder data (CHD). Tokenization technology, invented and released by Shift4 in 2005, replaces the CHD with a unique, alphanumeric value called a TrueToken. For up to 24 months, TrueTokens can be used in conjunction with DOLLARS ON THE NET to perform the same accounting and auditing functions that are traditionally done with CHD. 4Go intercepts actual CHD before it enters the POS system/PMS. With TrueTokenization in place, the POS/PMS cash register, POS/PMS application, back office POS/PMS server application and any network infrastructure between them are removed from the scope of PCI, drastically simplifying PCI compliance efforts.

The following are just a few of the value-added features that DOLLARS ON THE NET offers merchants for only pennies per transaction:

  • Pre-settlement auditing tools eliminate inaccurate transactions, prevent downgrades, and help avoid unnecessary authorization fees, costly chargebacks and credits.
  • Assured delivery ensures that transactions are authorized and settled without lost or duplicate transactions.
  • Direct processing to American Express eliminates third-party processor fees and accelerates funding.
  • Enterprise management for centralized control from all locations to search, report, submit, audit and review all transactions securely via the Internet.
  • Fraud Sentry® combats trusted-employee fraud with real-time monitoring and immediate notification of unusual credit card transaction activity and suspicious trends.
  • Fully integrated gift card solution IT’S YOUR CARD® offers complete control to activate/deactivate, track, report and process balance inquiries from the same place credit cards are charged with no extra hardware or third-party integration.

For those ready to bring true security, cost savings and simplified PCI compliance to their properties, contact a Shift4 representative by calling (800) 265-5795 or email info@shift4.com.
