Features & Benefits

  • Reduces the scope of the merchant’s PCI compliance because the consumer’s credit card number is never stored in the merchant's system.
  • Creates a one-time-use token that randomly generates a 16-digit numerical token that represents the primary account number (PAN), which minimizes changes to a merchant's website and order management system.
  • Protects merchants from possible fraud because the token is meaningless outside of the transaction for which it was created, cannot be re-used by hackers, and the algorithm that creates the token is not predictable.
  • Works with most payment gateways and payment processors.
  • Manages all third-party payment processing platforms via a single connection.
  • Supports stand-alone processing of all major credit card brands (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover).
  • Gives the merchant flexibility to accept alternative payment brands, and allows their consumers to use more payment options.
