- Address Verification Service (AVS)
The Address Verification Service (AVS) is a credit card fraud prevention system developed to assist merchants by verifying the address of American customers. By submitting the credit card billing address and the corresponding ZIP code with the authorization request, payment processing systems which use AVS can compare existing records with the order. If the billing address and the ZIP code in the card issuer's records matches the billing address and the ZIP code submitted, a degree of certainty is created for the merchant that the person using the card for the order is who they claim to be. Ideally, this reduces the number of customer disputes and chargebacks for the merchant, especially since it could prove difficult to reacquire shipped merchandise.
