The Verify endpoint in the Sales API processes a $0.00 authorization on the consumer’s credit card simply to see if the credit card is valid and the account is open. It obviously does not move any money as the authorization attempt is for $0.00.

Another use case for the Verify route is to securely tokenize a card on the ConnexPay system - eliminating the need to save it in your system.

In the v2.16.00 version deployed on August 28, 2020, we added the CVV and AVS results to the Verify API call response which are cvvVerificationCode and addressVerificationCode respectively. This information helps you make a decision on if the consumer is the true cardholder.

AVS and CVV response codes can be found here.
