Shift4 Payments, a leader in integrated payment processing solutions, has launched Shift4Cares.com. To date we've raised more than $200 million for restaurants and other hospitality businesses who have been hit especially hard by the COVID-19 crisis. Through this site, consumers can purchase gift cards for local businesses and Shift4 will contribute an additional 5% to the business – up to $10 million. Shift4Cares.com also offers a wealth of valuable information for businesses impacted by this crisis, including fi nancial aid and other relief resources as well as reopening best practices.

Additionally, Shift4 has posted actual transaction data, updated daily, to highlight the economic impact of this pandemic. Since Shift4 securely processes over 3.5 billion transactions annually for more than 200,000 businesses nationwide, this transaction data offers valuable insight into the effects this pandemic is having on U.S. businesses. Shift4 has also waived numerous fees to help ease the fi nancial burden on its customers during this diffi cult time, including online ordering fees, gift card fees, and fees for the company’s SkyTab mobile payment solution.

Additionally, Shift4 has launched a number of new technology solutions to help businesses quickly adapt to this new environment:

SkyTab Solo – This is a standalone version of Shift4’s popular SkyTab mobile payment terminal. It works right out of the box without any POS integration for businesses who need an immediate solution. It's 4G enabled, so it works anywhere, making it great for curbside pickup and deliveries.

SkyTab Takeout – This completely free, turnkey online ordering solution enables restaurants to quickly publish a branded ordering website in an hour or less – complete with logo, business information, and menu.

Contactless Payments – Shift4 has enabled all of its payment terminals to support contactless transactions. This includes support for Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay, as well as the launch of a proprietary new QR Code payment technology. The new QR Code payment option allows customers to pay their bill by simply scanning a unique code with their smartphone and completing the transaction through their web browser.
