Response
application/vnd.worldpay.tokens-v1.hal+json

A 200 OK response means that you've already tokenized the card and that all data supplied in your create a token request matches the data stored with Access Worldpay.

Sometimes, a token can be matched even if the data isn't quite the same. For example, if Access Worldpay has a billingAddress on file, the existing billingAddress is retained if no billingAddress was supplied in your request. Additionally, you receive the 200 OK response code.

The existing token resource reference is returned in the tokenPaymentInstrument object.
