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.
