What is a CVV2 Number?

CVV stands for "Card Verification Value" (Discover Card calls it the "Cardmember ID")

All credit cards carry a security code number. It is the last 3 digits AFTER the credit card number in the signature area of the card

If you have a Visa, MasterCard , or Discover Card - please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number. -See below, the security code highlighted.
