Visa Token Services and Visa Checkout APIs have been available on the Visa Developer Center (developer.visa.com) since the launch of Visa Developer in February 2016.
These products are also available to be managed from Visa Digital Solutions Platform (developer.digital.visa.com for Sandbox and business.digital.visa.com for Production). Until now, developers seeking to utilize Visa Checkout or Visa Token Services through the Visa Developer Center were required to register and maintain accounts on Visa Digital Solutions Platform as well, though developers registered on Visa Digital Solutions Platform were not required to register on Visa Developer Center. In short, this resulted in developers managing multiple sets of login credentials to access multiple portals, with completely different experiences and overlapping functionality.
This has long been a key customer pain point and cause for confusion. One of Visa’s tenets is to offer a simple consistent “One Visa” experience with improved and streamlined onboarding and integration management work-flows for developers interested in Visa’s Digital Services including Visa Checkout and Visa Token Services through Visa Developer Center.
As of April 2, 2018 Visa has unified the Visa Digital Solutions platform with the Visa Developer Center to provide a seamless integration experience.
The key benefits include:
Single-Portal, Single-Sign-On: Use a single account on Visa Developer Center to use Visa Checkout or Visa Token Services for end to end developer configuration management.
Product Settings Available in Project: Access Visa Checkout and Visa Token Services profiles and configurations pages via your project on Visa Developer Center.
Swift Path to Production: Direct merchants have a seamless path to request production credentials for their project.
When you visit Visa Digital Solutions Platform (developer.digital.visa.com), your browser will be automatically redirected to Visa Developer Center (developer.visa.com).
You will be able to use your existing password from Visa Digital Solutions Platform (developer.digital.visa.com) to login on the redirected site i.e. Visa Developer Center (developer.visa.com) via the “Sign-In” link on the top of the page. However, if you already had an account on Visa Developer Center (developer.visa.com), your login credentials from Visa Developer Center will be honored and will not change.
Once logged in on the Visa Developer Center, you can find your Visa Checkout or Visa Token Services project (migrated/copied from your Visa Digital Solutions Platform account) located under the Project Dashboard for easy access to the API keys, credentials, and documentation.
Note – if you had an existing Visa Checkout or Visa Token Services Project on Visa Developer Center in our Sandbox, you may need to re-create the project to get the full experience.
