About Shift4
Shift4 provides one of the world’s largest independent payment gateways, DOLLARS ON THE NET®, to more than 24,000 merchants in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. Boasting 20+ years in the payments industry and complete bank and processor neutrality, Shift4 is proudly merchant focused, helping to lower rates while offering the speed, security and reliability merchants can depend on.

Celebrating 10 Years of Tokenization
Shift4 introduced tokenization to the payments industry in 2005 and has processed more than 6 billion tokenized transactions to date. TrueTokenization® replaces cardholder data from all points of entry, allowing for the safe long-term storage of payment data for future use, recurring billing and incremental authorizations.

EMV Made Simple
Shift4 has been processing EMV transactions in Canada for the past five years and is ready for U.S. EMV. Shift4’s U.S. EMV solution includes support for popular terminals from both Ingenico and Verifone – all of which support EMV, NFC (contactless) and Shift4’s True P2PE™, a point-to-point encryption solution that prevents sensitive card data from ever entering the hotel environment. While EMV on its own will not prevent data breaches, it is a powerful anti-fraud tool and should be layered along with tokenization and P2PE to secure sensitive payment data.

Mobile Point of Sale
Shift4’s mobile payment solution, VT4®, turns any Internet-connected device into a P2PE-capable point of sale, allowing merchants to securely accept credit, debit, check, cash and gift card payments at the valet, the pool, restaurants – and more. VT4 fully integrates with DOLLARS ON THE NET, offering advanced auditing, accounting, reporting and fraud-prevention capabilities that can’t be found with any other mobile payment solution. VT4 complements businesses of all sizes, including boutique bed and breakfasts, hotel chains and mega-resorts by offering service to unlimited users, devices and revenue centers.

Secure, Integrated Payment Processing
DOLLARS ON THE NET is an enterprise-wide, integrated payment solution for card-present and card-not-present transactions. It serves as a real-time, Web-based payment gateway between a merchant’s point-of-sale (POS) or property management system (PMS) and their bank or processor. Shift4’s solutions keep their customers from storing, processing, or transmitting sensitive cardholder data, simplifying PCI compliance and greatly reducing the risk of a breach.

Today, nearly a third of all the hotels in North America use DOLLARS ON THE NET. Shift4 understands the challenges that hoteliers face and provides integrated payment solutions designed specifically to combat those issues.
