What is a validation code?

What is a validation code?



CVC-code (Card Validation Code)

The CVC code (or CID - card identification code) is an added security feature on all major credit cards. The CVC is used for verification and validation in environments where a credit card is not physically present, such as ordering goods and services over the phone, via the internet or by mail. The CVC-code is a number uniquely connected to your personal credit card.

For Visa or Euro/MasterCard holders


What is a validation code?

You will find the CVC 3 digit code on the back of your credit card, on the slip where your signature is placed.

The CVC code is the 3 numbers directly after your complete credit card number, which is the same as shown on the front of the card (see example above).
Note: The digits are printed on your card, rather then stamped in the plastic like the digits in your credit card number so if you always carry your card in your back pocket you probably can't read it anymore.
For American Express card holders



What is a validation code?
The CVC code is the group of numbers immediately following your credit card number and located slightly above the stamped numbers. For American Express there are 4 digits on the front of the card in the area shown by the graphic above.
Note: The digits are printed on your card, rather then stamped in the plastic like the digits in your credit card number.
