Network Tokens

Network Tokenisation is a concept introduced by the card schemes such as Visa, Mastercard and AMEX, based on the technical framework provided by Emvco ( Thereby, a Network Token (also called DPAN) is a 16 digit Primary Account Number (PAN) alternative which is unique per each cardholder as well as per mechant. Like a regular PAN, Network Tokens can be used for completing ecom transactions or sharing them with other partners in the payment eco-system.

By using PCI Proxy APIs a Network Token will be automatically generated once a cardnumber is collected - without any further implementation effort on your side.
