VT4 mPOS Solution by Shift4 With Star's mPOP Prove to Be an Above Par POS

Shift4's VT4 Mobile Point-of-Sale Solution and Star Micronics mPOP Provide POS Solutions for Golf Courses and Other Pop-Up Stands and Stores

SOMERSET, NJ--(Marketwired - Jun 14, 2016) - Shift4, the first card-present payment gateway and the largest independent payment gateway in North America, recently created a new mobile point-of-sale solution, VT4, with support for Star Micronics mPOP. VT4 paired with the mPOP, mobile point of purchase, has proved to be the ultimate solution for small business or "pop-up store" venues such as golf courses, amusement park retail, hospitality, and more.

After finding success with Star Micronics portable printers with the VT4 mobile point of sale app, Shift4 took interest in integrating the mPOP due to its all-in-one design and easy set-up. The mPOP, mobile point of purchase from Star provides a sleek POS peripheral combining a cash drawer and receipt printer with an included 1D barcode scanner. With all POS components in one attractive design, the mPOP was a great fit for VT4.

"Payments are moving toward an anywhere, anytime model," says Jeremy Fried, Systems Architect for Shift4. "VT4 was designed to allow merchants to accept payments whenever and wherever their customers needed. With its cash drawer, barcode scanner, and receipt printer all in one sleek package, mPOP allows our customers to fully adopt this mobility model. "
