Tokenization IS Encryption - NOT! - Part 4

This is the first addendum post of a three (now four)-part series written by Steve Sommers, Shift4’s SVP of Applications Development. The first three sections can be found here, here, and here.

Incremental Authorizations: Not for Restaurants and Bars

Payment processors and the card brands all too often fail to consider the food and beverage (F&B) industry when writing their rule books. The result is that F&B merchants occasionally find themselves equipped with tools that seem to fit their business, only to find out that using them would cost them in the long run.

Last Chance: Join Us in the Birdies4Shriners Fundraiser

You all know about our Birdies4Shriners fundraiser, right? It’s the program we started last year to pair our love of golf and our desire to help children in need. It functions like a walk-a-thon where Shift4 and our partners, customers, and friends join together to make a contribution for each birdie, eagle, and ace made by Shift4-sponsored PGA TOUR professionals Ryan Moore and Scott Piercy. Last year, the campaign raised an amazing $75,000, which we presented directly to the Shriners Hospitals for Children during the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Shift4's Most Useful Web Pages

There are approximately 500 unique pages within the Shift4 website, so don’t feel bad if you haven’t visited all of them. Many of the pages are designed to introduce merchants to Shift4 and explain what we do. For example, from our DOLLARS ON THE NET® page, you can learn why we call our product a Gateway+ (hint, because it does a lot more than a regular payment gateway) and get in-depth information on all of the features that makes DOLLARS ON THE NET the fastest and most secure choice in payment processing for merchants.
