Credit Card Security Code

The credit card security code, also known as a CVV code, is an anti-fraud credit card feature to assure that the customer placing the order is in physical possession of the credit card.

For Visa and Mastercard, the three-digit security code is printed on the signature panel on the back of the credit card, immediately after the 16-digit account number.

For American Express, the four-digit security code is printed on the front of the credit card above the 15-digit account number.
