How do I accept manual credit card payments without having to enter the CVV code.

We are unable to process orders from our website without the CVV code.  Our website provider asks for a substantial monthly payment to collect this number with the credit card information.  We would like to be able to accept manual transactions without have to enter the CVV code.


Hi there,

Let me share some information about the security standards for accepting credit card payments.

The Card Verification Value (CVV) code is required when accepting payments in QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale (POS). This is to protect and mitigate your business from fraud. Just to let you know that the CVV is an added security feature governed by Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).

You can check out the PCI DSS guidelines for more information through these links: 

That's it. The information above should point you in the right direction. Let me know if you have further questions. I'm always here to help. Have a great day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
