Customer-Initiated Installment Payment with Enrollable Network Tokens

An installment payment is a single purchase of goods or services billed to a customer in multiple transactions over a period of time agreed to by you and the customer, and sometimes, the issuing bank. The agreement enables you to charge a specific amount at specified intervals. For customers, installment payments provide greater purchasing power and lower impact on their monthly budget. For you, offering installment payments at checkout can help increase the number of successfully completed purchases.
IMPORTANT
Do not use this document if you are using the Installments service. When using the Installments service,
Cybersource
saves and stores payment credentials for installment transactions, ensuring compliance with COF best practices.

Using Enrollable Network Tokens

The
Token Management Service
can enroll certain
network tokens
, known as device tokens, into an instrument identifier token for future payments.
Device tokens
store and encrypt card-on-file information which enables customers to make quick and easy purchases using their mobile device. When authorizing a credentialed payment with a device token, you must create and store the device token in a
TMS
instrument identifier token. To do this, include the device token information in the
paymentInformation.tokenizedCard
fields and set the token creation fields to create an instrument identifier token.
Follow-on merchant-initiated transactions are performed using the created instrument identifier as the payment information. For more information about how to request a merchant-initiated transaction, see Merchant-Initiated Installment Payment with TMS.
Device tokens are also known as
digital payments
,
digital wallets
, and
tokenized cards
.

Installment Payment Types

Visa Platform Connect
enables you to process installment payments but does not have a role in setting the terms for the installment plan.
Visa Platform Connect
enables you to process these types of installments payments:
Issuer-Funded Installment Payments
The customer pays for goods or services using an installment plan agreed upon by the customer and their issuing bank. The issuer controls how the customer's account is debited. Your account is credited for the entire amount in a single transaction. The issuer assumes the risk and establishes credit rates and fees that are charged to the customer. The customer pays the funding cost, which is a fee for paying in installments. In Brazil, a
Crediario
is a special type of issuer-funded installment payment plan that enables the customer to request information about the terms of the installment plan before approving the installment payments.
Merchant-Funded Installment Payments
The customer pays for goods or services using an installment plan agreed upon by you and the customer. The issuer controls how the customer's account is debited. Your account is credited periodically for partial amounts as the customer's account is debited. You assume the risk and establish the credit rate and fees that are charged to the customer.
Co-Branded Merchant Financed Installment Payments—Brazil Only
You and the issuer determine the terms for this kind of installment plan. The funding varies depending on the agreement between you, the issuer, and the customer. This funding method is available only for Mastercard installment payments in Brazil.
Issuer Merchant Co-Financed Installment Payments—Brazil Only
The issuer creates the installment plan. You and the issuer determine the service fees that the customer pays to you and the issuer. The acquirer is paid in full while the issuer is paid in installments by the customer. You or the customer pay the funding cost, which is a fee for paying in installments. This funding method is available only for Mastercard installment payments in Brazil.
