What is a Credit Card Security Code?

all killer.  no filler.

The Credit Card Security Code (also called CVV2) is a security measure that we require for all transactions. Since the security code number is printed on your credit card, but not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct security code number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself.

Finding your Credit Card Security Code

On MasterCard, Visa, and Discover cards, you can find the security code number on the back of the card to the right of the account number. On American Express cards, the number is located on the front of the card above and to the right of the account number.

Note: If your European or Asian credit card does not have a card security code, enter 000 as your card security code.
