CVV2 / CVC2 / CID2 Code.

You know what they are, but do you use them? Even today, when most merchants know what those extra 3 digits printed on the card are for, it’s surprising how many don’t bother using them simply because of an extra few seconds. If you take phone orders or even mail order, those few seconds and 3 numbers could potentially save you thousands! How much are those 3 seconds worth to your business? If your credit card terminal isn’t asking for these codes when you key in your tickets, call U.S. Bankcard Services, Inc. (USBSI) at 1-888-525-8558 and get set up on a program that will help you collect that info at the time of purchase.
