Payment Instruments Import Type

A payment instrument is a set of fields that can be used to charge a shopper without any action on the shopper's side.

Note:

The Payment Instruments import type is not available unless the Payment Instruments feature is enabled in your account. To enable the Payment Instruments feature, the Credit Cards Payments feature must already enabled.

To enable the Payment Instruments feature, go to Setup > Company > Setup Tasks > Enable Features, and on the Transactions subtab, check the Payment Instruments box. Then, click Save.

The Payment Instruments feature makes using various payments methods more straightforward and, in the case of payment cards, more secure. The Payment Instruments feature uses tokenization to substitute sensitive data with tokens. Using tokens removes the need of Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance considerations. Typically, tokens are created automatically by gateway integrations.

You can use CSV imports to import the following kinds of payment instruments:

For the CSV import to be successful, the payment method specified in the CSV file must already exist in NetSuite.
