Difference with X-Pay-Token for Visa Checkout

What are the details in the x-pay-token for Visa Checkout?

 

In the Getting Started guide it shows the exact details on how to generate the x-pay-token. It also has the following note:

Note: The x-pay-token used by Visa Checkout is slightly different than the x-pay-token described in this section. For more information, refer to API Key – Shared Secret (x-pay-token) for Visa Checkout.

 

While on API Key – Shared Secret (x-pay-token) for Visa Checkout, it gives a high-level overview on the calculation fo the x-pay-token. I'm able to succesfully use the test app located at API Reference - Get Payment Data but I get 401s in the c# sample project and in SoapUI, following the instructions on the Getting Started page.

 

  • For Visa Checkout, does the token only start with x: or is it xv2:?
  • Is the shared secret apart of the message that gets hashed?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Difference with X-Pay-Token for Visa Checkout

-Update-

I was able to get the sample C# code from the developer portal to work by modifying a few pieces.

 

Some of the differences that i found/remember:

  • The HASH is no longer calculated by supplying the shared secret, its in the data being hashed
  • The token starts with x: not xv2:
