The Grant API is currently in a limited release. To determine whether it's right for your needs and to request access to the API, contact

The Grant API allows you to give another Braintree merchant controlled access to one of your customer's payment methods.

gateway =
  :access_token => access_token_for_recipient

grant_result = gateway.payment_method.grant(
  :allow_vaulting => true,
  :include_billing_postal_code => true
nonce_to_send_to_recipient = grant_result.payment_method_nonce.nonce
# ...
shared_payment_method_token required, String

The alphanumeric value that references a specific payment method stored in your Vault.

Additional Parameters
:allow_vaulting boolean

Whether or not the receiving merchant may use the resulting nonce to store the payment method in their own Vault for future use.

:include_billing_postal_code boolean

If true, any payment methods or transactions created using the nonce will include the billing postal code from your Vault record.

:revoke_after Time

A date/time after which the grant will automatically be revoked. The time must be at least 24 hours after the grant occurs and specified to the hour (minutes and seconds should both be 0). The date/time should be in ISO 8601 format. If you wish to revoke sooner or at a specific time, use PaymentMethod.revoke().
