Don’t Get Lured Away From Shift4

Don’t Get Lured Away From Shift4

We can only assume that at one time or another, you may be contacted by our competition and pressured to move to another payment gateway. If this is the case and you’re considering a move, don’t make the mistake of believing everything you hear. There are a lot of things that you get with Shift4 that you can’t get anywhere else.

Freedom:

  • Because of our 100% bank and processor neutrality, you have the freedom to change banks and processors at will, which means you can continually shop around for the best rates.
  • Our TrueTokenization® solution is the only truly portable tokenization solution available, so you won’t lose data if you change processors.
  • True P2PE™ (point-to-point encryption) is the only “plug-and-play” P2PE solution on the market, so you can implement it with almost no development and won’t have to buy costly new equipment if you change processors. It also works with all the leading payment device manufacturers.

Flexibility:

  • DOLLARS ON THE NET® can unify payments across your enterprise, even when multiple processors, devices, and point-of-sale (POS) and property management system (PMS) solutions are in use.
  • Centrally audit, batch, and settle transactions all in one place – anywhere, anytime.
  • Seamlessly manage payment data in omni-channel environments, including brick-and-mortar, e-commerce, and mobile transactions.
  • IT’S YOUR CARD® allows you to create, manage, track, and profit from a fully customizable gift card solution for much less than you might spend on a competing solution.
  • We integrate with more than 350 POS and PMS solutions, meaning DOLLARS ON THE NET can be used no matter how large or complex your environment is and no matter what your business needs dictate.

Features:

  • We support emerging technologies, including Canadian and U.S. EMV, NFC, mobile point of sale (mPOS), and more – and will continue to provide support for future technologies in the way that is best for your business.
  • Access a secure, 24-month rolling transaction archive for reporting, retrieval requests, and chargeback defense.
  • Fraud Sentry® can identify and stop “trusted-employee” fraud before it happens.
  • Our Universal Transaction Gateway® (UTG®) offers no-cost, no-hassle device and system updates.
  • Adaptive routing technology provides the most reliable connectivity and fastest transaction times in the industry.
  • Assured Delivery ensures transactions get through without being duplicated or lost.
  • Direct processing to American Express accelerates funding and eliminates fees paid to third-party processors.
  • We offer high-speed connectivity to the bank and processor of your choice with sub-3-second authorizations and no communication costs.

Security:

  • Our True P2PE and TrueTokenization solutions work together to provide PCI scope reduction and strong protection against breaches.
  • 4Go®, our PA-DSS-validated driver-based firewall, gives you added options for P2PE security without having to upgrade your payment devices.
  • We have 11 Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSPs) on staff – and a twelfth one pending – demonstrating Shift4’s expertise in payment security and stringent commitment to providing you with the highest level of security.
  • We have fully redundant, PCI DSS-compliant data centers and PA-DSS-validated software applications.
  • Our data centers are audited by a QSA company under PCI DSS SAQ-D (service providers) on an annual basis and scanned by an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) on a monthly basis. (The PCI minimum is quarterly ASV scans.) Plus, in any given month, we perform multiple internal and external vulnerability scans and penetration tests using industry-leading, commercial off-the-shelf security technologies.

Advocacy:

  • Our world-class, Las Vegas-based Customer Support team is available 24/7/365.
  • We provide straight-shooting advice from true payments experts. We tell it how it is – the good, the bad, and the ugly.
  • As true merchant advocates, we don’t have investors or shareholders to worry about, so we answer only to you, our merchant customers. All of our decisions are based on what is best for you and your business – because your success is our success.
