Visa Token Service - CVV?


Visa Token Service - CVV?

Trying to get up to speed on the VTS service.  

When processing subsequent payments for a tokenized PAN - do we need to pass in the CVV along with it? or does the token represent all payment info - i.e.) cardholder name, PAN, expiry and CVV?

much appreciated,

The Visa Token Service (VTS), a new security technology from Visa, replaces sensitive account information, such as the 16-digit primary account number, with a unique digital identifier called a token. The token allows payments to be processed without exposing actual account details.
