Shift4 Announces U.S. EMV Certification with TSYS

Shift4 Corp., provider of the DOLLARS ON THE NET payment gateway, said it completed U.S. EMV certification with payment processor TSYS. Shift4’s certification allows merchants the ability to securely process EMV chip cards through its payment gateway solution.

Benefits of processing EMV payments with Shift4 include:
  • Layered security: EMV chip cards will not protect merchants from payment data breaches. While more secure than its magnetic-stripe predecessor, EMV remains vulnerable to data theft. Shift4 layers the card-based security of EMV chip cards with its True P2PE and TrueTokenization technologies to ensure sensitive payment card data doesn’t enter the merchant’s payment processing environment. This offers merchants protection against data breaches and reduces the scope of their PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) assessments.
  • Numerous systems integrations: With more than 350 systems integrations, Shift4 is able to seamlessly extend its EMV certification with TSYS to enable EMV payment processing through a wide variety of point-of-sale and property management systems. This gives the 33,000+ merchants using DOLLARS ON THE NET the ability to adopt EMV quickly and easily.
  • Device flexibility: Shift4’s U.S. EMV certification with TSYS supports both chip-and-PIN and chip-and-signature verification methods and offers the ability to use a number of EMV-capable payment devices using USB, serial, Ethernet, Bluetooth, or WiFi connectivity. Shift4 currently supports Ingenico Group’s iPP320, iPP350, iSC Touch 250, iSC Touch 480, iCMP, iSMP Companion, iWL 250, and iWL 252, as well as Verifone’s MX 915 and MX 925. All of these devices supportTrue P2PE and offer NFC/contactless capability to enable mobile wallet acceptance, including Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, and more. Support for additional devices may be added in the future.
  • Bank and processor neutrality: Shift4’s bank and processor neutrality allows merchants to connect with any of the major U.S. processors as they certify Shift4 for U.S. EMV. This offers merchants the freedom to negotiate the best payment processing rates, centrally manage payments across a variety of banks and processors, and make a switch if needed without losing access to transaction data.
