Card ID Result Codes – CVV2

The following is a list of result codes for the CVV2/CVC2/CID verification system and what each one indicates. These codes are returned in the UMcvv2ResultCode variable and provide developers with greater control over the CVV2 system. Many developers choose to capture and display the UMcvv2Result variable instead. The UMcvv2Result variable contains the meaning of the code rather than the code itself.

Code Meaning
M Match
N No Match
P Not Processed
S Should be on card but not so indicated
U Issuer Not Certified
X No response from association
(blank) No CVV2/CVC data available for transaction.
