Validate Credit Card Details


Validate credit card information.

The Credit Card Validation service allows you to quickly check if a credit card number is potentially valid, and identifies the type of card. Use this to improve your shopping cart checkout experience by pre-selecting the type of card rather than forcing your users to select it manually, and providing immediate feedback on mistyped credit card numbers.

Please note that this service does not actually execute a transaction, so does not confirm that the credit card actually exists and has available credit, only that it is a potentially valid number.

The following methods are available in the CreditCardValidation service.
