Credit Card Security & CVV Code

Rivercityquilts.com also employs a number of ways to protect you and us from fraudulent use of your credit card. On all credit card transactions we require the Security Code.

How to find your card security code

On a Visa, MasterCard or Discover, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your card security code. (See below)

What is the card security code?

This is a security measure we require for all transactions. Since the card security code is a number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, and MasterCard cards made in America in the past 6 years or so have a security code number, while those in Europe and Asia have joined more recently.

Visa, MasterCard and Discover

This number is printed on your MasterCard, Visa and 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). IF YOU CANNOT READ YOUR CARD SECURITY CODE, YOU WILL HAVE TO CONTACT THE ISSUING CREDITOR.

***If your European or Asian credit card does not have a card security code, you may enter 000 as your card security code.
