Token Swap

The feature requires you have credentials for the payment processor for which you want to obtain tokens.

An AuricVault® token is independent of any payment processor. The AuricVault® service has the unique ability to translate this independent token into a processor-specific token. We call this TokenSwap.

The Token Swap service has numerous advantages:

  • Ability to use the same credit card data with multiple payment processors.

  • Simplify front-end development (capture one type of token) and allow a back-end system to handle specific payment processor targeting.

  • Integrating new front-end system with legacy systems already capable of communicating with various payment processors.

  • Allowing future migration between payment processors.

The AuricVault® Token Swap option allows you to capture and tokenize the credit card using the AuricVault® tokenization service and then translate that token into a payment processor specific token. Refer to the tokenize payments API call for each supported payment processor.
