Creating a token 'createToken'

The createToken operation facilitates future payments by enabling the merchant website to offer buyers the possibility to associate a token with one or several bank card numbers.

The operation allows:
  • To make fast and secure payments (one-click payment).
  • To make periodic or recurring payments.

Processing a createToken call results in creating a VERIFICATION type transaction (operationType=5), visible in the Merchant Back Office with the following characteristics:
  • its amount is 1.00 EUR or 0.00 EUR if supported by the acquirer,
  • its status is either “Accepted” (transactionStatusLabel=ACCEPTED) or “Refused” (transactionStatusLabel=REFUSED),
  • it is never captured in the bank and remains in the “Transactions in progress” tab.


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