What is CVV/CVC code and where can I find it on my card?

The CVV/CVC code (Card Verification Value/Code) is located on the back of your credit/debit card on the right side of the white signature strip; it is always the last 3 digits in case of VISA and MasterCard.

Please copy your CVV/CVC code from the back of your card and continue with your payment.


VISA uses the CVV or CVV2 code, MasterCard uses the CVC or CVC2 code.


Nowadays it is possible to easily get card details of someone else. For example CCTV cameras are in operation in almost every shop and follow you while paying. Not only because of this fact the CVV/CVC verification code is located on the back of your payment card and represents the basic security feature. Therefore CVV/CVC code is required for all online payments where the card is not present and the PIN code cannot be entered.
