Secure Payment GatewayA Best-in-Class Foundation
With Ironclad Security

Industry-Leading Security TechnologiesPacked With Additional Features

Shift4 has been at the forefront of payments innovation since the company was founded more than two decades ago. The result of that continual innovation is our industry-leading payment gateway, which is powered by the most secure and unique technologies available. Our gateway is truly one-of-a-kind because of the groundbreaking security and features behind the scenes.

Layered Payment Security


Our EMV solution is certified for U.S. and Canadian processing, with dozens of device options and unique features, like quick chip and offline EMV processing.

Point-to-Point Encryption

Our PCI-validated P2PE solution encrypts cardholder data right at the terminal, so sensitive cardholder data never enters the merchant’s environment. Learn More.


We invented the industry’s first payment data tokenization solution, which replaces stored card data with a random, alphanumeric value that is useless in the hands of data thieves.
