## Credit Card Validator

Credit card numbers are generated according to certain rules. It gives merchants a way to verify the validity of a card number before accepting the customer's payment.

The calculation to compare a credit card number with your checksum is known as the Luhn algorithm.

You can also save time by using the Prepostseo online credit card validator which performs the checksum calculations for you.

## How to Perform Manual Card Validation?

• First step

Enter the last digit of the credit card number. This is the digit of the checksum you will use to verify the rest of the credit card number.

• Second step

Enter each digit of the credit card number, starting with the digit to the left of the checksum and moving to the left. If the credit card number has 16 digits, double the amount of each digit in the odd places, working from right to left, before adding it to your list.

In the case of credit cards with 15 digits, it would duplicate the digits in the points of uniform position. If you double the results of digits in a number greater than 10, add the two digits of the new number together and write that result into your list.

For example, if the digit on the card is seven, duplicating it would result in 14. The total of the two digits would then be five.

• Third Step:

Totalize your list of numbers. Do not include the checksum digit in your total. If the total can be divided by 10, the credit card has a valid number. Otherwise, you shouldn't process credit card transactions.

However, the merchant generally stays away from the product or service provided, as well as the resources necessary to discover the fraud and fight against the credit card company.

• Memorize your PIN. Never write it down
• Be sure to receive your card from the vendor or waiter when you use it.
• Shred the receipts that contain the full account number if you do not need to keep them.
• Review your account statements as soon as you receive them to make sure all transactions are yours.
• Make a list of your credit card numbers and customer service phone numbers and keep it in a closed place. If your purse or wallet is lost or stolen, this will make it easier for you to call to cancel the cards.
