Complete Your Shift4 Payment Account Setup

Follow these steps to complete the Payments Account Setup on your store's Shift4 Payments method.

  1. Log into your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager.

  2. Using the left navigation menu, go to Settings > Payments.

  3. On the Payment page, click on the Select Payment Methods button.

Look at the top of the page where your Shift4 Payment module is. If you see a notice for "You need to provide additional information to start accepting payments," it just means that you'll need to finish the setup process (see image).

4. Click on Complete Account Setup.

5. Fill out the application form.

When filling out the application form, you'll input the following:

  • Banking Information
    For your payment deposits

Additional Information
Your banking information will be automatically verified during setup to help minimize errors when filling out the form. This, in turn, will help mitigate the need for manual reviews, which could delay your application process.

  • Business Type
    Whether you're selling as an individual or have an established business

  • Business Details
    Your store name, business name, and business address information.

  • Your contact information
    For ID verification

  • Product Information
    The type of product or services you'll be selling and your expected revenue

  • Terms & Conditions
    Acknowledgment and acceptance of the Terms and Conditions

Once the form is completed, click on the "Complete Account Setup" button at the top right of the page to submit your application. You will then be notified via email when the process is complete.

However, to fully finish the setup and complete the process, you must ultimately click on the Complete Account Setup button mentioned above.

Opening Your Store

Be aware that - if you are on the free End-to-End eCommerce plan - your store is closed to outside traffic until your Shift4 Payment Account Application is complete. Therefore, after submitting your application, be sure to open your store for business!

To open your store, go to Settings > Design > Store Status and set your store to open status when you're ready to go live. Click here for more information on using the Store Status function.
