Collecting raw card data

Find out how to make payments using raw card data.


What is PCI certification?

PCI Level 1 and 2 certification means you meet requirements for processing, storing, and transmitting credit card data.

You can read more about it on our blog.

If you are PCI Level 1 or Level 2 certified you can submit raw card data to Adyen when you make a payment.

To submit raw card data, contact our Support Team. Once they've set you up, you'll need to submit the following card fields when you make a /payments call:

  • numberThe card number (do not use separators).
  • expiryMonthThe card expiry month.
  • expiryYearThe card expiry year.
  • cvcThe card verification code.
  "amount": {
    "currency": "EUR",
    "value": 1000
  "reference": "Your order number",
  "paymentMethod": {
    "type": "scheme",
    "number": "4111111111111111",
    "expiryMonth": "08",
    "expiryYear": "2018",
    "cvc": "737"
  "returnUrl": "",

A successful payment will contain a pspReference, which is our unique identifier for the transaction. It will also have a resultCode of Authorised, which you can present to the shopper.
