Tokenized Payments Offer Simpler, More Secure, Shopping

Tokenization helps answer the market need for secure, convenient mobile payments that make day-to-day transactions easy and worry-free.

Rule the Wallet With Tokenized Payment Solutions

Tokenization is the process of replacing the traditional payment card Primary Account Number (PAN) with a unique numeric digital token in transactions.


Tokens are linked to specific devices and are worthless if stolen, hacked or intercepted


The process happens in the background and helps facilitate a better consumer experience


Tokenization extends security into digital channels, reducing the potential for fraud and removing the inconvenience and cost of lost and stolen cards


Benefits of tokenizationSimplify the purchasing experience for consumers by largely eliminating the need to enter and re-enter the account number when purchasing on a mobile device, such as a smartphone. Tokens also help prevent fraud by removing sensitive card account information from the payment process.


  • Eliminates the need for your cards to physically leave your hands
  • Is easy to use at the point-of-sale, in-browser and in-app
  • Enhances transaction security
  • Reduces the risk of fraud in digital channels
