A Token is a unique key that refers to a credit card that is stored in the iCharge Card Store. Each stored card is assigned a token that your application can safely store in your system since the token cannot be used anywhere else or to pay anyone else.
Whenever you need to charge the stored card, your application issues a payment request quoting the token and the amount to be charged. iCharge uses the token to unlock the card details and processes the payment in the usual way.
Token Payments may be accessed directly through the PayManager User Interface, integrated to your application through the xServ Application Programming Interface, or automatically scheduled using the AutoCharge service.
An automated card expiry alert service is included to remind cardholders when their cards are nearly expired or have expired.
|Access Tokens directly using the PayManager User Interface
