What You Need to Do

  1. Don’t panic. Shift4 has been processing EMV in Canada for years, and we’re ready to support your transition to U.S. EMV.
  2. Work with Shift4’s Customer Support department and your POS or PMS provider, to choose the right EMV payment terminal. Our Customer Support team is available 24/7/365 at 702.597.2480 (option 2) or and will provide contact information for Shift4’s approved payment device manufacturers or resellers.
  3. Make sure you buy payment devices that can support point-to-point-encryption (P2PE) and that have Shift4’s encryption keys already injected.
  1. Tell your POS or PMS provider to check in with us at to make sure they are certified with us for EMV.
  2. Request that your bank or merchant services provider put pressure on their chosen processor to support Shift4’s efforts to certify on that processor’s host. This may help your processor understand that getting ready for EMV is important to you, and may help to speed up the most time-consuming part of the EMV process: the processor’s test and certification scripts.

What You Need to Do

  1. Contact us at to certify with us for EMV.
  2. Do a little bit of coding. If you use our Universal Transaction Gateway® (UTG®) controlled device support and can accept PIN debit and/or gift cards with us, then you have already done most of the work. In fact, getting EMV capable with Shift4 is as easy as updating the coding for the receipt text block to ensure the correct text goes to the merchant and customer. Most ISVs are finding that the extra coding takes only days, not weeks.
You’ll be EMV certified with EVERY processor we work with in just one certification with Shift4. Yeah, it’s that easy.
