The Card object represents a sustainable dematerialization of a payment card. It can be associated to a customer object to allow recurring payment, setting up a subscription or a 1-click payment.
As a consequence, you no longer need to store cards on your servers. Once this feature is implemented in a customer object you can process secure recurring payments with a single click.
This object also includes attributes related to the issue context of the card. A GET request on a cardId can reveal :
