🤫 Quick Tip:
This feature is currently open for early access! We need to onboard your account (whether you are planning to use our test keys or live keys) before your developers can start testing and integration. Kindly message [email protected] to request for onboarding.
To start off, let's first define some terms:
💻 Vaulting - the process of saving card details into a software database
🔢 Tokenization - the process of providing a safe reference number corresponding to the encrypted card details to be saved into the vault
With these, we can safely store your customer's card details for future reuse.
A use case example of card vaulting is when a customer wants to quickly pay for food orders over any of our food and beverage merchants. The merchant would request PayMongo to save their details. When the customer comes back and pays with the same email, PayMongo will be able to detect that this email has saved cards. This time, the customer has the option to reuse this card for a specific merchant.
Most of our merchants who use this feature are either in the food or delivery business that has customers who frequently return to this store. However, you wouldn't need to be in these two industries to have frequently returning customers in your store.
