Following an investment in MagicCube, Shift4 selects i-Accept as its preferred softPOS Tap-to-Pay solution

MagicCube, the startup that created the Software Defined Trust (SDT) category, announced today at NRF’s Retail Big Show that it has partnered with Shift4, the leader in integrated payments and commerce technology, to offer the company’s i-Accept solution to merchants in the United States. i-Accept turns any Android smartphone or tablet into a PCI-compliant payment device that can accept secure contactless payments using Tap-to-Pay – with or without PIN.

“We are thrilled to be selected as the preferred softPOS provider for Shift4, delivering a cutting-edge, truly secure, and scalable payment acceptance experience to the hundreds of thousands of merchants in their network,” said Sam Shawki, CEO and Cofounder of MagicCube. “i-Accept takes the complexity out of moving the checkout experience beyond the cashier’s desk and enables merchants of all sizes – from the smallest to the largest ones, with sophisticated backend and compliance needs – to offer better shopping experiences to their customers with seamless Tap-to-Pay on any Android device, including phones, tablets, and touch screens.” 

i-Accept empowers merchants of all sizes to accept contactless transactions using payment cards and mobile wallets such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay, and it even adapts to local card schemes. It also allows for secure PIN capture on the device screen without scrambling or shuffling the PIN entry device keys, making the transaction experience seamless and convenient for consumers.

“At Shift4, our mission is to power commerce by empowering merchants with simple and innovative technology solutions,” said Michael Isaacman, Chief Commercial Officer at Shift4. “MagicCube’s state-of-the-art i-Accept solution aligns with this goal by delivering unmatched flexibility and convenience for retail businesses of all types and sizes.”
