My terminal is prompting for a V code. What does this mean?


The Card Verification Code (CVV or CVC) is the 3 digit code that appears at the end of a credit card number on the back of most cards. For American Express® cards, the CVV is a four digit number which is located on the front of the card above the card number. This code is designed to reduce fraud losses primarily on mail or telephone transactions.
