Create a token from payment

POST https://{domainname}/v1/{merchantId}/payments/{paymentId}/tokenize

Payments

The payments REST services allow you to initiate a payment, retrieve the payment details or perform specific actions like refunding or requesting capture of a payment. A payment is identified by its paymentId. Some payment products allow a two step approach allowing you to control when the authorization takes place separate from when the funds are actually captured.

Request

Use this call if you want to convert the payment details into a re-usable token. This call is especially useful if you don't have access to sensitive data like card data, but you have processed transaction successfully based on card data that has been collected either using our MyCheckout hosted payment pages or through one of the Client SDKs that encrypted this data.

PayloadTokenizePaymentRequest

Property Type Required Details
alias string (100) no read close
close

Description

An alias for the token. This can be used to visually represent the token.
If no alias is given, a payment product specific default is used, e.g. the obfuscated card number for card payment products.
Do not include any unobfuscated sensitive data in the alias.

Request example

SDK: Java

This scenario you will probably use the most

  • TokenizePaymentRequest body = new TokenizePaymentRequest();
    body.setAlias("Some alias");
    
    CreateTokenResponse response = client.merchant("merchantId").payments().tokenize("paymentId", body);
    

Responses

Please find below an overview of the possible responses.

Response 200 - OKCreateTokenResponse

A new token has not been created as one already existed. You will get this response if you tried to create a token for a card that has already been tokenized for this merchantId. You should verify if you would like to update the data that is stored in the existing token as no data is updated when a duplicate token is detected. The only way to update the data stored in a token you will need to use the update token call.
