Shift4 and SPI Software Announce EMV Solution for
Timeshare and Vacation Ownership Clubs and Resorts
EMV Solution Is Available Today with Eight Processors in the U.S. and Canada
With Shift4’s DOLLARS ON THE NET payment gateway and SPI’s Orange Systems timeshare software suite, clubs and resorts in the vacation ownership or timeshare industry can process EMV payments to help prevent the fraudulent use of stolen card data in card-present environments while adding the layered security of point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization. This keeps sensitive cardholder data out of the club’s or resort’s payment processing environment, greatly reducing their breach profile and PCI scope – and protecting their guests’ payment data from hackers.
Shift4 currently supports more than a dozen EMV-capable terminals by Ingenico Group and Verifone with options for USB, serial, Ethernet, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. This allows complex hospitality environments to easily implement EMV without disrupting their current business operations.
Shift4’s complete bank and processor neutrality makes it possible for timeshare and vacation ownership operators to adopt EMV without changing their financial relationships and gives them the freedom to negotiate the best payment processing rates or make a switch if needed. Shift4 is currently certified for EMV with eight major processors – with more on the way – delivering unparalleled coverage of acquirers in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.
“SPI Software integrates the Orange system’s timeshare software suite with Shift4’s DOLLARS ON THE NET payment gateway so our club and resort operators can experience the best-in-class in payment processing efficiency and security,” said George Stemper, CEO, SPI Software. “We are proud to be able to offer EMV where every transaction is secured with Shift4’s PCI-validated point-to-point encryption solution.”
“Shift4 is committed to putting our merchants first as we create and provide the latest technologies in payments,” said Dave Oder, CEO, Shift4. “To us, it was important to support EMV’s authentication mechanism while taking the security it provides at the point of sale much further by ensuring that every implementation of EMV offered the layered security of point-to-point encryption and tokenization to free our customers from the burden handling and storing sensitive card data. We’ve achieved this mission with the EMV solution we offer today, and we’re pleased with the benefits it brings to SPI Software and the timeshare and vacation-ownership customers that we jointly serve.”
