So Much More than DOLLARS ON THE NET
As we attend user group events with many of our POS/PMS partners, we are both surprised and saddened by how little many of our merchant customers know about what Shift4 does for them. Some of them know us only as DOLLARS ON THE NET®; others know our name but are not sure what we do… either way, they’re often missing out on great features and functions that Shift4 ‘s products offer, simply because they don’t know all of our capabilities.
We don’t want you to fall into that category, so we’ve put together a list of what Shift4 does for you and we encourage you to share it with those in your organization who may be less familiar with the benefits of Shift4.
We’ll start with our payment processing gateway, DOLLARS ON THE NET.
Shift4’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) DOLLARS ON THE NET is the most powerful and comprehensive enterprise-wide payment processing solution available for both card-present and card-not-present transactions. As an Internet-based application, it serves as a real-time payment gateway between a merchant’s Point of Sale (POS) or Property Management System (PMS) and their bank or processor, making sure that transaction data is correctly collected and transmitted so that transactions qualify for the best possible discount rates. DOLLARS ON THE NET also boasts the industry’s fastest authorizations and settlements, which helps provide a smooth and efficient experience for the customer.
Beyond DOLLARS ON THE NET, Shift4 provides a suite of technologies to our merchant customers that is unmatched by anyone else in the industry. Best of all, these are all provided at no additional cost. For just the pennies per transaction they pay for DOLLARS ON THE NET, Shift4’s merchant customers also enjoy:
TrueTokenization® – The original tokenization solution: completely random, 16-digit alphanumeric, yours even through bank and processor changes.
Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) – Reduce PCI scope from your full merchant environment/network to literally the size of a swipe device. This simplifies PCI, and drastically reduces your breach profile.
Mobile Payments – Mobile solutions are a “must-have” right now, but the vast majority of them are not secure. Shift4’s mobile payments options keep your customers’ sensitive data safe.
Chip and PIN (EMV) – Current support for EMV (Chip and PIN) in Canada, and future support for U.S. EMV well before the 2015 deadline.
4Go® – A virtual cardholder data (CHD) firewall that intercepts CHD as soon as it is swiped, which allows merchants to eliminate the vulnerability of CHD as it travels over internal networks.
i4Go® – A virtual CHD firewall for Web-based environments, i4Go routes sensitive data directly to Shift4, and returns only a token to the merchant, keeping their systems and networks free from the burden of storing CHD.
Assured Delivery Technology – Proprietary technology that helps you avoid lost and/or duplicated transactions, saving you time, money, and frustration.
Secure Offline Stand-In (SOS) – A user-configurable tool to keep your transactions secure and your checkout lines moving when your Internet connectivity goes down.
Pre- and Post-Settlement Auditing – The ability to review and edit transactions and batch settlements simplifies accounting efforts, while a 24-month transaction archive helps you fight chargebacks.
Fraud Sentry® – Proprietary Shift4 technology that allows you to monitor for and prevent “trusted-employee” fraud. Customizable to meet the specific needs of your organization.
Direct Connections to AMEX – Our high-speed direct connections save you from the additional fees many banks and processors charge you for processing to American Express.
24/7 In-House Support – We don’t outsource to some call center in Timbuktu. When you call Shift4 Support, you talk to a Las Vegas-based employee trained to support your Shift4 products.
Freedom – Our neutrality is your freedom. We’re not financially tied to any bank or processor, so you are free to change as business needs (or price hikes) dictate.
Merchant Advocacy – Shift4’s neutrality also places us in a unique position to act as your advocate. Many banks and processors make more money when you make a mistake. Shift4 doesn’t. We’ll help you save money by doing things the right way.
If you would like more information on any of these technologies, or need help getting them implemented in your environment, please contact our 24/7 Support department at 702.597.2480 (option 2) or [email protected].
