Shift4 Corporation is the world’s largest independent payment processing gateway, serving more than 20,000 clients in multiple industries. Boasting more than 350 PMS/POS integrations and absolute bank- and processor-neutrality, Shift4 is merchant-centric, helping clients secure the best discount rates while providing industry-leading security, speed, and reliability. The inventor of tokenization, Shift4 has processed more than three billion tokenized transactions since coining the term in 2005. Shift4’s DOLLARS ON THE NET® payment gateway provides unparalleled pre- and post-settlement auditing capabilities, fraud protection, and drastically simplified PCI-compliance.
Today, nearly 30% of the U.S. Hospitality industry uses DOLLARS ON THE NET. We understand the payment problems that hoteliers face and we have tools uniquely designed to help combat those issues.
Secure Payment Processing
Our 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. It serves as a real-time, Web-based payment gateway between a merchant’s property management system (PMS) or point of sale (POS) and their bank or processor, ensuring that transaction data is correctly collected and transmitted so that transactions qualify for the best possible discount rates.
Shift4 security technologies, included at no additional charge with DOLLARS ON THE NET, enhance protection and simplify PCI compliance by taking cardholder data (CHD) out of the merchant’s system. 4Go® allows merchants to eliminate the security vulnerabilities associated with handling CHD as it travels over internal networks or is stored in local log files. It becomes the payment application of record so your PMS/POS remains out of PCI scope. Shift4’s TrueTokenization® is the original tokenization technology that replaces CHD and addresses issues associated with the long-term storage of sensitive CHD. The Universal Transaction Gateway® (UTG®) is an application that intelligently provides security, reliability, usability, speed, adaptive routing, and offline handling between the merchant’s PMS/POS and DOLLARS ON THE NET. 
Shift4 offers the most comprehensive payments security solution for Hospitality merchants with three new technologies:
4Res™ – Sits between the CRS and hotel properties. It strips clear-text CHD from reservations before they enter the hotel environment.
4Word™ – A secure, controlled method for sharing payment data with an authorized third party, even if they are not a Shift4 client.
Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) – Our customers who use the UTG can simply order a supported device, plug it in, and receive all the benefits of P2PE.
