Tokenization in NetSuite

Learn how to configure tokenization in NetSuite.

NetSuite supports tokenization for ecommerce transactions.

Before you begin

You must turn on the Payment Instruments feature in Netsuite for tokenization to work. Turning on this feature changes the UI and the fields in NetSuite.

This feature presents a set of fields that can be used to charge a shopper without any action on the shopper's side, and enables tokenization.

You must configure custom preferences for Pay by Link if you want to enable tokenization for Pay by Link payments.

Configure tokenization

  2. Go to Setup > Accounting > Payment Processing Profiles and select the profile you use with Adyen.

    Field Description
    REPLACE PAYMENT CARD BY TOKEN Select this checkbox if you want a token to replace payment card details. This only applies if PAYMENT CARD TOKENIZATION under [ES] Adyen SuitePayment Main Config is set to Yes.
