A customer object is the logical representation of your customer that is equivalent to a container of means of payment. In other words, you can store several cards that will all have a cardId. The customer object has the main advantage of collecting all the transactions that have been carried out on a customer:
Thanks to this object, one or more cards can be associated allowing you to keep the payment data without having to store the card numbers in your databases.
A customer is identified by his email, surname and first name. You can associate payment means, in other words cards, in order to carry out recurring payments:
- 1 clic payment
- Subscription payment
- X multi payment - installment
The customer has no longer need to be asked to re-enter his card number once registered in his customer profile.
Tip: please be careful not to register twice the same card as it would add more time to the customer object query.
