Creating a token without payment

This case corresponds to a simple token creation.

The merchant website transmits buyer details to the payment gateway, in particular the e-mail address, which is mandatory.

  1. The buyer verifies the information displayed on the payment page.
  2. He or she clicks on the payment method that will be registered.
    The payment page displays the buyer details once again and prompts to enter the banking details.
  3. If the buyer has selected a bank card, he or she enters:
    • the card number,
    • the card expiry month,
    • the card expiry year,
    • the CVV code of the card if there is one.
  4. The buyer clicks Validate.
    If all the payment method verification processes have been successfully completed, the summary appears.
    It contains the newly created token. It can be later used for another financial operation.
    It is possible to send these details to the buyer by e-mail and receive:
    • the confirmation of the registration of these banking details on the payment gateway of the shop,
    • the buyer's token that they can later use for another financial operation,
    To find out how to send these details by e-mail, see chapter Configuring e-mails sent to the buyer.
The processing of a token creation request without payment results in the creation of a VERIFICATION transaction type, visible in the Merchant Back Office and having the following characteristics:
  • its amount is 1.00 EUR or 0.00 EUR if the acquirer supports it,
  • its status is either "Accepted" (vads_trans_status=ACCEPTED) or "Declined" (vads_trans_status=REFUSED),
  • it is never captured and remains in the "Transactions is progress" tab.

Warning :

The token will not be created if the authorization or information request is rejected.
