Tokenisation refers to replacement of actual or clear card number with an alternate code called the"Token". This shall be unique for a combination of card, token requestor [i.e. the entity which accepts request from the customer for tokenisation of a card and passes it on to the card network to issue corresponding token] and the merchant [token requestor and merchant may or may not be the same entity].
Conversion of the token back to actual card details is known as de-tokenisation
Tokenisation and de-tokenisation can be performed only by the authorised Card Networks like Mastercard/Rupay and Card Issuing Banks respectively.
The customer need not pay any charges for availing this service.
Normally, in a tokenised card transaction, parties / stakeholders involved are merchant, the merchant's acquirer, card payment network, token requestor, issuer and customer. However, an entity, other than those indicated, may also participate in the transaction.
Actual card data, token and other relevant details are stored in a secure mode by the authorized Card networks. Token requestor cannot store Primary Account Number [PAN], i.e., card number, or any other card details. Card networks are also mandated to get the token requestor certified for safety and security that conform to international best practices / globally accepted standards.
The registration for a tokenisation request is done only with explicit customer consent through Additional Factor of Authentication [AFA], and not by way of a forced / default / automatic selection of check box, radio button, etc.
Once created, the Tokenised card details will be used in place of an actual card number for future online purchases initiated or instructed by the card holder.
The chances of fraud arising from sharing card details are minimised as online merchants will only store unique codes and not the actual card numbers.Card data can be stored only by the card networks and Card-issuing Banks.

A token must be unique to the card at a specific merchant. If the customer intends to have a card on file at different merchants, then tokens must be created at all the merchants. If the card holder is having three different cards, then is the card holder expected to create 3 different tokens at the same merchant.As mentioned earlier, token must be unique for a combination of card and merchant.
All complaints should be made to the card issuers.
One token is valid only for one card and one merchant. So, if you tokenize your Debit Card for one e-commerce site, the same card will have a different token on another site. This is to prevent fraud. Besides, you can request tokenization on any number of cards for performing a transaction.
Previously, when the online shopping portals were hacked, all your details would get leaked. But under the tokenisation process, you will get a token issued by a bank before you make a purchase from an e-commerce portal. That token will be valid only for that particular e-commerce portal. As a result, even if the e-commerce portal gets hacked, your data is safe as unique tokens have replaced it.
