Click To Pay Direct API Token Passthrough


Click to Pay is an intelligent, password-free online checkout option that provides a quick and easy checkout experience designed to make ‘guest checkout’ faster and easier across all devices.

Click to Pay provides a single checkout button and a standardized checkout flow for all participating card schemes, including Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover and others.

Click to Pay is built off EMVCo's SRC specification and replaces Masterpass, Visa Checkout and Amex Express Checkout.

A payer can create a Click to Pay profile using their email address. During checkout, the payer must then provide this email address and perform an additional verification step with a one-time passcode (OTP). They can also choose the "Remember me" option to subsequently skip the verification when using the same browser in a subsequent checkout.

The payer can store multiple credit, debit or prepaid cards, the associated billing addresses, and multiple shipping addresses in their Click to Pay profile. Card details are securely stored, and additional security is provided by offering network tokenization where possible (market acceptance of network tokenization must be enabled).

Click to Pay allows your payer to select the payment details to be used for the payment; however, the payment itself is processed using the acquirer configured for your merchant profile in the gateway.

You will need to build your integration using the MTF environment first and then go live on the production environment.

Key Benefits

Click to Pay offers the following benefits:

  • Intelligent consumer recognition, ‘embedded’ into the checkout flow, to initiate faster guest checkout across all devices (with no passwords to remember).
  • A reduction in clicks and manual card entry to ultimately increase conversion and create frictionless experiences.
  • Potential for higher authorization approval rates, via network tokenization, assisting in the reduction of preventable declines.
  • Built upon EMVCo Secure Remote Commerce standards to create a consistent user experience and lower fraud rates in eCommerce guest checkout payment moments.
  • Secure exchange of payment data including card details, billing, and shipping address details


If you want to offer Click to Pay as a checkout option to your payers:

In addition to the standard fields, provide the following fields in an Authorization/Pay request to process payments using network tokens issued by the network tokenization service providers.

When a network token is provided in the Authorization/Pay request, the Retrieve Transaction response will return the following:

  • type=SCHEME_TOKEN- if a network token was used in the Authorization/Pay transaction.

If the acquirer returns an FPAN

  • provided.card.number:The masked FPAN (Funding PAN).
  • provided.card.expiry:The FPAN expiry.
