Our Gateway tokenization offering

Our gateway solution uses Payvault as its tokenisation service. It enables merchants using the service to store their clients’ card details in our gateway’s PCI DSS Level 1 database and receives a token (a unique code assigned to the card) which can be used to process future transactions in place of using the card number.

How tokenization works
