.What is Card Security Verification (CVV2)?
Card security verification collects the non-embossed 3- or 4-digit numeric code on the credit card provided at the time of purchase. Statistics prove that individuals, who possess the account number, but not the actual credit card, perpetrate much of the non-face-to-face fraud. Credit card processing verification programs are offered by the major card associations and are known as CVV2 (Visa), CVC2 (MasterCard), CID (American Express) and CID (Discover Card).What is Address Verification Service (AVS)?
An address verification service (AVS) is a system that verifies the personal address and billing information provided by a customer at the time of an online credit card transaction, against the information the credit card company has on file.How AVS Can Protect You?
When a customer enters a credit card number and any other information required on the merchant's order form, that information is then passed through the AVS during the transaction processing procedure. AVS will verify whether the address provided by the cardholder matches the billing address that was provided on the credit card application. If the information provided by the customer does not match the information contained in the AVS, a notice is sent to the merchant to deny the transaction. In essence, the AVS is used as extra protection in transactions for which the card is not present.
