What is a CVV or credit card Security Code?

  • Visa® and Mastercard® cardholders: Turn your card over, look at the signature box. You should see the entire 16-digit credit card number or just the last four digits followed by a special 3-digit code. This 3-digit code is the CVV number / Card Security Code.
  • American Express® cardholders: Look for 4-digit code printed on the front of your card just above and to the right of main credit card number. This 4-digit code is the Card Identification Number (CID) that you will enter as the CVV. The CID is the four-digit code printed just above the Account Number.
