|why is address verification so
I will ship only to an address that I can verify
through my automated merchant service or directly by calling the issuing
credit card or bank (which is why I ask for the phone # from the back of
ensures that the person ordering the merchandise is the person who legally
owns the credit card - otherwise items purchased with a valid but
stolen credit card # could be shipped anywhere without the knowledge of
the cardholder until the next billing statement was received.
Shipping only to a verified address protects
the customer and my business from internet
and mail order fraud. It is also a legal requirement
of my merchant credit card acceptance contract.
You may contact your credit card issuer and request
an alternate shipping address be placed
on file with your account that I will be able to verify by phone.
I realize there are many internet or mail order sellers
that will ship to an unconfirmed address in violation of their merchant
contract because they are afraid to lose a sale. There are also many reasons
why a legitimate customer may want a purchase shipped to an alternate address,
and I sympathize with the inconvenience caused when I will not, but you
must understand my strict policy is for the
safety of my business and my customer's accounts.
notes for international orders
I use the nationwide standard MC/Visa automated address
verification service that cannot verify most foreign addresses.
American Express provides me with efficient international
address verification - this is the easiest
card for me to accept for international orders.
If you are paying with Mastercard or Visa you
provide me with an internationally accessible phone number for your card
so I may verify your address directly.
Please call the customer service for your card and verify that they can
provide a merchant in the US with address verification at that phone number.
