Set the level of transaction security by selecting the features available in the Validation Options section. You can restrict transaction processing types, require the CVD/CVV number for credit card transactions, and billing address and card owner name optional.
Select your Validation Options
- On the menu, click administration> account settings> order settings.
- In the In the Payment Gateway section under Validation Options, there are four levels of transaction security.
Restrict Transaction Processing Types
Select this check box and one of these options to restrict the types of transaction you will accept:
- Purchase only
- Pre-Authorization only
- Purchase or Pre-Authorization only
Require CVD Number for Credit Card Transactions
Select this check box to require the Card Verification Data (CVD) for all credit card transactions. This may reduce credit card fraud by confirming the purchaser is the legal credit card owner. The CVV/CVD number is the 3-digit number on the back of a credit card; for AmEx, the 4 digits on the front of the card.
When this option is selected, a CVD field is added next to the credit card expiry field on the Simple Cart.
Note: Not applicable to MasterPass, Visa Checkout, Apple Pay transactions.
Billing Address Optional
By default, the Billing Address fields are required for each transaction request. When you select this check box, the Billing Address fields are optional, eliminating the need to pass all customer contact information with each order.
Note: Not applicable to Apple Pay transactions
Card Owner Name Optional
By default, the Card Owner Name field is required for each transaction request. When you select this check box, the Card Owner Name field is optional, eliminating the need to pass all customer contact information with each order.
Note: Not applicable to Apple Pay transactions.
