Shift4 vs Other Gateways

Don't Settle for Standard

Other Gateways' Problems and The Shift4 Advantage






Don't Settle for Standard

If you're looking for a run-of-the-mill gateway that barely covers the essentials, there are plenty to choose from. Standard security, limited reporting, and average accounting are what you can expect from other gateways.

If you want a secure, full-spectrum, leave-nothing-to-chance, exceptional gateway, Shift4's DOLLARS ON THE NET® has you covered. From security to reporting to neutrality to PCI compliance to costs, no other gateway comes close to offering what DOLLARS ON THE NET gives you for just pennies per transaction.

It's not just a gateway. It's a "gateway +" (gateway plus).

Other Gateways' Problems and The Shift4 Advantage

For every problem that other gateways experience, Shift4's DOLLARS ON THE NET has a solution.

Communications Costs
Other gateways require you to pay for your own connections to banks, processors, etc. Each of these has their own pricing structures and fees, which add up in a hurry.
Shift4 The Shift4 Advantage
  Shift4 provides you with redundant connections to processors and banks at no additional cost. Communications costs are not passed to you and there are no buried or bundled rates, no monthly support and maintenance fees, nor other communications charges.
No Auditing Capability
No other gateway comes with pre- and post-settlement batch auditing capabilities out of the box. With them, it's a feature you must pay for. What's more, payment transaction batches that aren't audited can cost you a great deal of money in fines and chargebacks.
Shift4 The Shift4 Advantage
  With us, you get full auditing capability at no additional cost. This allows you to make adjustments, acquire additional authorizations, void a transaction before settlement (which means you are not paying credit card fees on a transaction for which you received no funds), and identify which credits have been issued. There is also no need to rekey transactions nor are there added fees. You enjoy accurate batch processing, shorter month-end reconciliation, lower discount rates, and drastic reductions in credits, chargebacks, and downgrades.
Limited Data Archival and Web-Based Reporting
With some gateways you are given a very limited window/archive for data retrieval. What's more, every time you access your own transaction data, you may be assessed a fee. Finally, their less-than-capable reporting system (that you usually pay extra for) might be all you have to work with.
Shift4 The Shift4 Advantage
  We give you real-time, customized reporting from an easily searchable, rolling, two-year archive of all transaction data. You can easily search, filter, and create reports on any data within the system for a specific region, location, or merchant ID. You can quickly retrieve transaction data, including a full audit trail of every transaction, to easily resolve customer service inquires without the hefty look-up fee. A copy of the folio/invoice is even stored in the transaction record within DOLLARS ON THE NET, which allows for centralization of all point-of-sale (POS), property-management-system (PMS), and e-Commerce information for generating necessary information for chargeback defense
No Direct Processing to AMEX
Other gateways that process American Express (AMEX) cards require a third-party connection and infrastructure. This can be a huge expense.
Shift4 The Shift4 Advantage
  Shift4 offers, at no additional cost to you, a direct, high-speed connection to American Express for both authorizations and settlements. We don't pass on third-party processing fees. With Shift4, you can save upwards of $0.30 per AMEX transaction and we help expedite your funding.
Miscellaneous Fees
Many gateways hide fees or bundle them with third-party systems. Either way, they become added costs of doing business.
Shift4 The Shift4 Advantage
  We have no statement fees, insurance fees, surcharge fees, chargeback fees, PCI non-compliance fees, data security solution fees, data storage fees, nor customer support “incident” or ticket fees.
Outsourced, Expensive Customer Service
Using other gateways means limited, tiered support levels, or even outsourced customer service. This “service” is an extra they charge you for.
Shift4 The Shift4 Advantage
  Shift4 provides 24/7/365 world-class customer support at no additional cost. With us, there are no call centers in Timbuktu; all calls are handled by Shift4 employees based in Las Vegas, NV. You get access Shift4's support team and their knowledge of systems, processors, and industry standards without getting the call-center runaround.
