|This is a secure web site. To add to the
traditional security of credit card number encryption, we also require
that you enter a CVV2, CVC2 or CID number when
you use your credit card.|
CVV2 (Card Verification Value), CVC2 (Card Validation Code) and CID (Card Identification #) codes are a new authentication scheme established by credit card companies to help reduce fraudulent use of credit card numbers in internet transactions. It consists of requiring a card holder to enter the CVV2, CVC2 or CID codes at transaction time to verify that the card is on hand. You can find these codes as shown below. If your credit card does not have one of the codes, please contact your credit card company to get a new credit card that will allow us to process your online credit card order in the most secure way possible.
Visa, MasterCard, and Diners Club cards have a 3-digit CVV2 and CVC2 security code. The security code is the last 3 digits of the number on the back of the card (see diagram below).
American Express credit cards have a 4-digit CID security code, and it's located on the front of the card in various areas (see diagram below)..
