About Shift4
Shift4 stands alone as the last major player in the payments space to remain independent, self funded and merchant focused. Its DOLLARS ON THE NET® payment gateway comes with all the bells and whistles: pre and post-settlement auditing, fraud controls, support for new technologies like EMV and mobile, secure connections to nearly every major bank and processor in North America, and 350+ certified integrations to leading POS, PMS and e-commerce platforms. Shift4 invests heavily in payment security – it invented tokenization and owns eight payment-security patents. The company empowers its 33,000+ merchant customers with the flexibility to customize its secure payment processing solutions to fit their business.

Get EMV Ready
Through Shift4’s innovative Universal Transaction Gateway®, it can deliver EMV certification to its hundreds of POS and PMS integration partners, greatly reducing their costs. Shift4’s certifications for EMV provide merchants numerous options, helping them to adopt an EMV solution that fits their business. This includes support for popular terminals from both Ingenico Group and Verifone – all of which support EMV and NFC/contactless over a variety of connectivity options (USB, serial, Ethernet, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi). While EMV alone will not prevent data breaches, it is a powerful anti-fraud tool that is layered with Shift4’s True P2PE™ and TrueTokenization® solutions to secure sensitive payment data.

Shift4’s mobile point-of-sale solution, VT4®, turns any internet-connected device into a P2PE-capable point of sale, allowing hoteliers to securely accept credit, debit, check, cash and gift card payments at the valet, pool, restaurants and more.
