Once your user has passed verification, you can begin creating cards. Cards can be of two type -
PHYSICAL set on the Create Card API.
For both card types, a
threeDSecurePassword parameter is required - This must be collected from your user directly and is the password that is to be entered when the card is used for online transactions.
Virtual cards once created, can be used immediately for online transactions and with Apple/Google Pay if this is enabled for your program.
As noted above, all cards are enrolled in 3D Secure by default.
When creating a card, specifying the type as
PHYSICAL automatically creates and dispatches the card from the personalization center using the design configured for your program.
A physical card must be activated before it can be used and the last 4 digits of the card are used for this purpose and must be entered by the user into your application and then sent to the Activate Card API.
PHYSICAL card is in one of the following states -
CREATED- A physical card has been created
DISPATCHED- A physical card has been manufactured and shipped
ACTIVE- A physical card has been activated using the last 4 digits of the card
BLOCKED- A physical card can be blocked intentionally or if it was lost/stolen/damaged
To replace a card, please order a new physical card.
