Shift4 completes certification for US EMV with American Express

The certification will allows merchants to process chip-embedded American Express EMV cards with enhanced payment processing features.

Shift4 CEO Dave Oder said: “Our direct connection to American Express and split-processing capability lowers merchant fees and eliminates headaches. Because we are supporting EMV with every major processor in the country, as well as Global Payments and Moneris Solutions in Canada, we are able to support integrated payments in even the most complex merchant environments. This strategy for EMV is unmatched by any other payment gateway in the industry.”

Shift4 said that its certification for US EMV with American Express supports both chip-and-PIN and chip-and-signature verification methods and support for the latest EMV-capable payment devices by Ingenico Group and Verifone.

Supported devices offer a variety of connectivity options as well as NFC/contactless capability to enable mobile wallet acceptance, including Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, and more.

Shift4 is also certified for EMV with American Express in Canada with Ingenico Group’s iPP320 PIN pad device.
