Do you require the CVV field for credit card processing?

1 min. readlast update: 05.06.2024

The CVV code is primarily used for authorizing a customer's possession of their card during credit card payments. We DO require the CVV to ensure another additional layer of card security for clients and their purchases. This will require either the customer or business to provide the CVV for authorization during purchases or adding the card to their account for renewing card payments/memberships.

Rest assured, the digital security of your card is of utmost importance to us and our processors, and having CVV verification, along with 256-bit encryption and some of the strongest security measures, allows us to help protect your information.
