Come See Us at Retail’s BIG Show!

Hey, retailers! We’ll be packing our warmest coats and heading to NYC for National Retail Federation’s (NRF) Retail’s BIG Show held January 13-14, at the Javits Convention Center. Our customer support and sales teams will be there in booth #1659 (level 3) to answer your questions about PCI compliance, how DOLLARS ON THE NET® works as an omni-channel gateway for you, and they'll be raffling off $250 VISA gift cards every 2 hours!

Windows XP Sunset Event Could Affect Your PCI Compliance

On April 8, 2014, Microsoft’s extended support for Windows XP will cease. Merchants running this operating system should start preparing now to upgrade to a supported operating system. But of course, in standard Shift4 style, we’re here to explain why and how these changes affect you so you can keep your business compliant and safe.

Introducing the MetaToken

At Shift4, we do all that we can to get cardholder data out of your merchant environment. We use P2PE on the front end to keep the data from entering your environment at the point of swipe, then return a TrueToken® on the back end so that you can keep a record of the transaction without having to worry about storing card data.  We also have solutions for tokenizing e-commerce form entries and even reservation data.

PCI Says Most Tokens Won’t Reduce Scope

We’ve spent much of the last five years warning merchants about companies that claim to offer tokenization when what they really have is nothing more than a weak encryption scheme. We call these solutions “tokenization in name only,” or TINO for short, and they annoy us to no end. But we’re happy to announce that something is finally being done about them.

A New DOLLARS ON THE NET®: We've Made the Best Even Better!

Get Ready! We’re kicking off 2014 with exciting changes to DOLLARS ON THE NET, beginning January 21st.
