Security Code

The Security code is a three or four digit code that can be found either above the credit card number or on the reverse side.

Why do we need this?

The Credit Card Security Code is used as an additional level of security to provide non-physical transaction with verification of the credit card holder. This helps us prevent fraudulent transactions as this number is not as easily obtained as the Credit Card Number itself which gets imprinted on sales slips and tickets.

Most current cards include this number, so please provide it with your order form.

If an order is placed without this code it will not be processed immediately online and there will be additional checks to guarantee authenticity of the card holder. We might need to contact you by phone or email to verify the card including the possible requirement to fax a copy of your credit card.
