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.
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.
These solutions work together seamlessly to provide unparalleled protection against costly data breaches. Your customers’ personal information will always be protected — during the transaction and long after — by the most up-to-date and reliable payment security technologies available.
