More and more parking operators are deciding to enable CVV/CVC confirmation before accepting payment.
Requiring CVV/CVC entry is one method to reduce potential fraudulent transactions. This is due to Merchants and Service Providers not being allowed to save CVV/CVC in their databases due to PCI-DSS requirements.
By forcing the Consumer to enter the CVV/CVC for each payment attempt, the idea is that only the cardholder has access to this data for card-not-present transactions.
As a PCI-DSS compliant organization, PayByPhone is not allowed to store the CVV/CVC and only enables this feature on the request from the parking operator.
