    The CSC (Card Security Code) is a 3 or 4 digit number that appears on your credit card, it is not part of the credit card number.

    The CSC is also known as the Card Verification Code (CVC) by Visa, Card Validation Code (CVV) by MasterCard. The CSC is an extra security feature of credit cards.

    It is not contained in the magnetic stripe information, nor does it appear on sales receipts or billing statements - you must have the card in your possession in order to use this code. Card security codes are not raised (they are only printed), so they are not scanned into standard credit card readers. In theory, these numbers are only visible to the cardholder.

    When a customer gives the card security code to a merchant, they assist the merchant in verifying that the order is being placed by the cardholder.
