What is a CVV Code and where can I find mine?

What is it?

CVV stands for Card Verification Value.

This is a security feature implemented to assist with preventing fraud. The security code is not printed on any receipts and therefore helps validate that the customer making a purchase actually has physical possession of the credit card.

Where can I find it?

Visa or Master Card:
Look on the back of your credit card in the signature box. The CVV is the 3-digit code printed on the right-hand side of your 16-digit credit card number.

American Express:
The CVV is the 4-digit number printed on the front of your credit card in one of the following locations:

- Right side of the card, directly above the credit card number.
- Left side of the card, directly above the credit card number.
