As per the RBI guidelines on Tokenization – Card Transactions: Permitting Card-on-File Tokenization (CoFT) Services, w.e.f. 1st October, 2022, merchants will not be allowed to store your card numbers and expiry dates for processing online transactions. Any existing details that were saved by merchants will be deleted. To ensure continuity and the same ease of online payments for you, we encourage you to tokenize your Debit Card(s) details at your preferred website / apps soon. We, at The Varachha Co-Op Bank Ltd, have ensured appropriate readiness and provisions to seamlessly tokenize your cards for your safety, security and convenience.
What is Tokenization?
Tokenization refers to the replacement of actual card details with a unique identifier called the “token”, which shall be unique for a combination of card, token requester (i.e. the entity which Accepts request from the customer for tokenization of a card and passes it on to the card network to issue a corresponding token) and merchant.
How can I tokenize my card?
You can initiate tokenization request on the merchant app / website and provide your consent. Once you enter card details and initiate transaction, you would be asked to secure your card by providing a one-time consent for tokenization. You can opt for tokenization and complete transaction with OTP. The request will be forwarded to the card network and the token will be issued corresponding to the combination of the card, token requester and the merchant. Below is the step by step process to tokenize your card.
Steps to tokenize your card on merchant platform
Step 1: Visit merchant website or app
Step 2: During checkout enter card details
Step 3: Click on the check box to secure your card
Step 4: Complete the transaction with OTP to tokenize your card
alternatively, for existing saved cards on merchant platform
Step 1: Visit merchant website or app
Step 2: Select saved card and click on secure your card as per RBI guidelines
Step 3: Complete Rs.2 refundable transaction with OTP to tokenize your card
What is the benefit of tokenization?
A tokenized card transaction is considered safer as the actual card details are not stored or shared with the merchant during transaction processing. Previously, merchants were allowed to store card details such as card number and expiry, leaving sensitive information at risk of misuse. Post tokenization, merchants would be storing only the token details and not the card details. Actual card details are only available with the issuer (The Varachha Co-Op Bank Ltd) and network (RUPAY). This means that even if the data ends up getting compromised at the merchant’s end, your card details are safe. Since token is unique per merchant, data compromise at one merchant would not affect other merchants, unlike in the current scenario where customer is advised to replace the card.
