With credit card orders - to protect you (and ourselves) - we request the additional "V-code" Verification Code from your credit card.
This Verification Code is found in different places depending on what type of credit card that you have.
This new additional number (fraud protection) checking system has been created so that if someone does have possession of your credit card numbers they also need to have possession of your card in order to know what your v-code numbers are.
Visa and Mastercard V-Codes
The Verification Code is a three-digit number on the back of your Visa or Mastercard credit card. The full credit card number is reprinted in the signature box and at the end of the number is the Verification Code.
American Express V-Code
The Verification Code is a four-digit number on the front of the card above the credit card number on either the right or the left side of your American Express credit card.
