The Payment Sources API, with its additional options and improvements, obsoletes the Cards APIs. This operation is obsoleted by the following:

Adds or replaces card details of a customer. Updating card details replaces the present payment method.

Passing credit card details to this API involves PCI liability at your end as sensitive card info passes through your servers. If you wish to avoid that, you can use one of the following integration methodologies if applicable

  • If you are using Stripe gateway, you can use Stripe.js with your card update form.
  • If you are using Braintree gateway, you can use Braintree.js with your card update form.
  • If you are using Authorize.Net gateway, you use Accept.js with your card update form.
  • In case you are using the Adyen gateway, you will have to use the Adyen’s Client Side Encryption to encrypt sensitive cardholder data. Once the cardholder data is encrypted, pass the value in adyen.encrypted.data as temp token in this API.
  • You can also use our Hosted Pages based integration. Use our Hosted Page - Update Card API to generate a 'Update Card' Hosted Page link.

Legacy behavior:
  • For sites created before March 1st, 2014: On making this request, the billing_address and vat_number of the customer are deleted and replaced by the values passed with this request. Ensure that you pass the billing address parameters and the vat_number parameters each time you make this request, to avoid losing the same information at the customer-level.
  • For sites created on or after March 1st, 2014: This request does not alter the billing_address and vat_number of the customer.
