Token Vault

Cashfree Token Vault helps you store your card credentials in a secure manner. For further processing, we create network tokens for these saved cards

With Token Vault, merchants can generate and store card tokens as a part of the save cards process. Merchants would also be able to fetch the saved cards (tokens) for a customer and display them to the customer to initiate subsequent transactions through saved cards. Cashfree Payments tokens are also interoperable, which means cards saved (tokenized) through us can be used to initiate payment through any payment processor.

Create Order

To create an order for which card payments can be processed along with save card request for a customers

In order to accept payments from customers, merchants first need to create an order with Cashfree. The cards would be saved while processing payment for an order hence creating order is a necessary step in tokenizing and storing cards.

🚧

Customer Id

The tokenized cards would be stored for the customer_id shared in the create order request. Merchants need to ensure that they do not pass any PII as a part of customer_id.

See the detailed request here Create Order

Order pay

Pay and save card details

Merchant needs to pass save_instrument as true after taking consent from the customer. Cashfree will send generate token request to the card networks. On receiving the consent Cashfree will first process the payment and complete 2FA before sending token generation request to the card networks. If 2FA is not completed, that is if the payment for the order is not successful, Cashfree will not send token provisioning request to card networks and hence the card would not be tokenized.

Payment for a saved card

Merchant can fetch the saved cards for a customer, using the customer_id and display those in an appropriate format. If customers choose from any of those displayed saved cards, merchants will have to pass the corresponding instrument_id in the pg/orders/pay to initiate payments using the saved cards.

Pay using a raw tokenized card

If the merchant has implemented their own token generation and cryptogram generation process outside of Cashfree Payments, then they can use the pg/orders/pay api to process tokenized card payments using card networks tokens as mentioned in the below API.

Fetch cryptogram

Fetch token, cryptogram for 3rd party processing

Merchants can fetch the card network token, token expiry and cryptogram along with other details required for processing transactions using card network tokens. The fetch cryptogram request initiated for an instrument_id of the card saved with Cashfree Payments will return these details in response. The fetch cryptogram request should ideally be initialised only if merchant wants to process transactions outside Cashfree Payments PG.
