What is V Code?

V Code is the 3 digit number on the back for your credit card. The V code is located in the signature line and is usually the last thre numbers directly after your credit card number. ( Some cards do not have the credit card number listed, so in this case the V Code is the last 3 numbers.)

Why V-Code?

This fraud protection checking system has been created so that if someone has possession of your credit card numbers they also need to have possession of your card in order to know what your v-code numbers are.
