Authorize.net Subscriptions - Credit Card Tokenizations

Hi there! When using Authorize.net for subscriptions, when the credit cards get tokenized are those tokens accessible via the Shopify API? 

The reason for the question is let's say a merchant wants to switch from Authorize.net to Shopify Payments for subscriptions. 

Can those token's be ported over via the Shopify API to Shopify Payments or do the tokens have to stay with Authorize.net and only accessible via Authorize.net's APIs?

Hey Diego - awesome thanks! May you please also confirm that method will only work for Stripe and Authorize.net, but not for Braintree? 

If so, what's the best method to have customers update the payment method for Braintree to Shopify Payments?

I believe the question is also part of this other thread, where you might find an answer: https://community.shopify.com/c/subscription-apis/migrating-subscriptions-from-braintree/m-p/1324038...

Fair point, but to confirm the card update email does not work with Braintree?
