About Shift4
Shift4 provides the world’s largest independent payment gateway, 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 that merchants can depend on to process payments.

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, including recurring billing and incremental authorizations.

EMV Made Simple
Shift4 has been processing EMV transactions in Canada since 2010 and is now supporting U.S. EMV. Shift4’s U.S. EMV solution includes support for popular terminals from both Ingenico and Verifone – all of which work with EMV, NFC/contactless and Shift4’s True P2PE™, a point-to-point encryption solution that prevents sensitive card data from entering the hotel’s payment systems. While EMV alone won't prevent data breaches, it is a powerful anti-fraud tool and should be layered along with tokenization and P2PE to secure sensitive payment data. Ninety percent of Shift4’s merchant customers will be EMV ready by Q2 2016.

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 enterprisewide, integrated payment solution for card-present and card-not-present transactions. It serves as a real-time, Web-based payment gateway between a hotel’s point-of-sale (POS) and property management system (PMS) and its bank or processor. Shift4’s security solutions ensure merchants don't store, process or transmit sensitive cardholder data, simplifying PCI compliance and greatly reducing the risk of a card-data 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.
