Credit Card Validation Codes
Credit card companies are now using an extra three or four digit code to authorize credit card charges. Since we do not have your card to run your charge, we need the additional Verification Code or Customer Code Number. During Checkout, you will be asked for your Card Validation Number. This is how you find it.
The card validation number is printed on your Visa, MasterCard & Discover cards in the signature area of the back of the card. (it is the last 3 digits AFTER the credit card number in the signature area of the card).
American Express cards show the card validation number printed above and to the right of the imprinted card number on the front of the card.
If you have one of the above cards but do not have the new validation number printed on the card and our credit card validation system requires this as a required field for that card, you will need to either choose a different card or contact your credit agency and request the validation number and/or a new card with the number printed on it
