What is a CVV number?

The CVV Number (“Card Verification Value”) on your debit card or credit card is a 3 digit number on VISA®, MasterCard® and Discover® branded credit and debit cards. On your American Express® branded credit or debit card it is a 4 digit numeric code. The number can also be known as “Card Verification Code” (CVC) or “Card Security Code” (CSC).

Why do I need to request a CVV number?

Requesting a CVV number during a card or MOTO transaction proves that your customer is in physical possession of the card. This helps significantly protect your business by reducing the chance of fraud.
