Braintree’s Vault enables merchants to store customer credit card information on Braintree’s secure servers, reducing PCI compliance scope by over 90 percent. With the Vault, customers stay on the merchant’s site for the whole transaction.
The Vault replaces credit card data with unique tokens that allow for the same functionality and control as the original credit card data. Merchants have the flexibility to create their own token to match an existing numbering system. Alternatively, Braintree can auto-generate a token or a Luhn 10 valid token, which is compatible with legacy software systems that were designed to store credit card numbers.
