What is a CVV?

The Card Verification Value (CVV), sometimes referred to as the Card Verification Code (CVC), is an additional input required during many online transactions to verify that you physically possess the credit card you are using to make a payment. Depending on the credit card provider, the CVV will be either a three or four digit code, and the location will be on the front or back of the card itself.
