What is a credit card issue number?

Postby tonya » Thu Aug 19, 2010 4:04 am

What is an issue number on a credit card? I am familiar with the three digit security codes but in the United Kingdom they ask for the issue number. Is that the same thing? I am trying to order something online and it asking me for my issue number on my Visa card. What should I enter?

As noted above that's what the CVV is called in the UK. It's the last 3 digits on the back of the card where the signature block is. On American Express it is the 4 number code printed near the top right of the card.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
