Address Verification System (AVS)

Address Verification System is a service provided through merchant services in which the merchant verifies the cardholder’s address. This is carried out as part of the merchant’s request for authorisation of the credit card transaction. The address verification software checks the billing address submitted by the card user with the cardholder’s billing address on record at the issuing bank.

Address Verification System is primarily used to combat fraud, however it does not always guarantee that a transaction is valid, as the billing address provided by a genuine customer may not always match the address on record at the card issuer.
