How to test CVD/CVV/CVV2 functionality

In order to simulate a CVV2 response in the demo/test environment, you can set the first character of the verification value as follows:

First Character Example Verification Value CVV2 Response CVV2 Filter Name in RPM Terminal Administration
1 123 M Card is authentic
2 234 N CVV2 does not match
3 345 P Card expiration not provided or card does not have valid CVD code
4 456 S Merchant indicated that CVV2 is not present on card
5 567 U Card issuer is not certified and/or has not provided visa encryption keys


For example, setting the verification value to "234" for a transaction would simulate the CVV2 Response "N". If the transaction is processed under a terminal that has the "CVV2 does not match" filter checked, the transaction will be declined due to failed CVV2 verification.

For a First Data Payeezy Gateway Payment Page transaction, the verification value should be set in the Security Code field of the payment collection form.

For a First Data Payeezy Gateway web service API transaction, the verification value should be set in the VerificationStr2 attribute of the request.  The CVD_Presence_Ind property must also be set, please see CVV/CVV2/CVD Hotsheet for more details.
