Card Security Code (CSC)
What is my Card Security Code?
The CSC (otherwise know as CVV2) is a new authentication scheme established by credit card companies to further efforts towards reducing fraud for internet transactions. It consists of requiring a card holder to enter the CSC number in at transaction time to verify that the card is on hand.
If you are using a Visa, Mastercard or Discover, please provide the 3-digit verification number found on the back of your card. This is a non-embossed number printed on the signature panel on the back, immediately following the account number.
This number is printed on your MasterCard & Visa cards in the signature area of the back of the card. (it is the last 3 digits AFTER the credit card number in the signature area of the card).
American Express cards show the CSC printed above and to the right of the imprinted card number on the front of the card. If you are using an American Express card, please provide the 4-digit verification number found on the front of your card. This is non-embossed.
