Stripe Issuing allows you to view and manage details associated with all the network tokens issued through your program. A cardholder can create a token by adding an issued card to a digital wallet or by saving a new payment method for their account at an online storefront. As a card issuer, you can view and manage these Issuing token objects through Stripe. Our Tokens API helps you:
- Perform your own fraud detection based on Device IDs or network risk indicators associated with a token.
- Verify that all existing tokens are migrated to a new card when your program replaces a card.
- Deactivate tokens suspected of fraudulent activity without impacting the underlying card.
Using the Tokens API
Tokens are only accessible with the Tokens API. You must join the Tokens API beta and sign in with your Stripe account to view the Tokens API reference.
You can view token webhook events from the Dashboard events page.
For token webhook events to appear, add endpoints with
issuing_tokens_beta=v2 appended to your Stripe Version header. This subscribes endpoints to token events. Appending
issuing_tokens_beta=v2 is also necessary if you want to receive the token ID used in an issuing authorization event.
If you have a synchronous
issuing_authorization.request webhook endpoint, migration to the beta header results in downtime for the endpoint. Endpoint downtime is unavoidable due to the fact that you can’t have multiple, synchronous endpoints or edit an endpoint’s version after it’s been created.

Access to the Tokens API is currently limited to US beta users. You must be an Issuing customer to join the beta. To request access to the beta, log in to your Stripe account and refresh the page. Contact Stripe for more information.
