CVC-CVV result testing

To test CVC/CVV results, use one of the test cards provided by Adyen: Test card numbers.

You can test CVC/CVV result codes. Assign the appropriate values to the child elements of the card element, as described below:

  • card.number – A number of the card to test.
  • card.cvc – A CVC value that you want to test. Use two padding zeroes before the CVC-CVV code.

You still need to include and define all the other card child elements, but their values do not impact the cvc return value you want to test.

Code examples

The following example shows how to use the card element to test CVC/CVV result code 4:


    "holderName":"Adyen Test"
<card xmlns="">
  <holderName>Adyen Test</holderName>


    "cvcResult":"4 No CVC/CVV provided, but was required",
    "refusalReasonRaw":"DECLINED CVC Incorrect"
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="" xmlns:ns1="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">
            <ns1:key xsi:type="xsd:string">cvcResult</ns1:key>
            <ns1:value xsi:type="xsd:string">4 No CVC/CVV provided, but was required</ns1:value>
            <ns1:key xsi:type="xsd:string">cvcResultRaw</ns1:key>
            <ns1:value xsi:type="xsd:string">S</ns1:value>
            <ns1:key xsi:type="xsd:string">refusalReasonRaw</ns1:key>
            <ns1:value xsi:type="xsd:string">DECLINED CVC Incorrect</ns1:value>
