Facilitate secure purchases for you and your customers
At American Express we want to ensure that purchases made are safe and secure for you and your customers:
How to position the CID/CV2 code on your website
- All American Express Cards have a four digit security code printed on the front of the embossed account number which is commonly known as CID or CV2
- Address Verification (AVS) provides the ability to electronically check a customer’s American Express billing address and postcode against the details we hold.
When adding an online payment method, you will notice that the various card information fields require different character limits and/or layout.
See the below example for guidance on how to set out the payment fields on the site and advise American Express Cardmembers of how to input their CID/CV2 number.
