Below are recommended instructions for businesses collecting credit card information directly on their invoices

Information You Should Collect


- Credit card number

- Signature of the Cardholder acknowledging receipts of goods (see sample below)


Please Note: You cannot collect the 3-4 digit security code on the back of the credit card. Storing the CVV/CVC information in any way is strictly forbidden by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS).
