How to Verify a Credit Card

  1. Click  on the order 
  2. Call the customer and explain that their order has been flagged as suspicious and you'd like to have them verify their identity by accessing their account and confirming the amount of a deposit about to be made. Once the customer agrees, you can proceed to step 3. 
    Do not proceed to the next step until you have the customer on the phone and they are able to log into their account. 
  3. Select Verify CC at the top right of your screen next to the suspicious behavior warning
  4. Trigger the deposit by clicking Yes, Continue

  5. Enter the amount the customer sees in their bank and click Verify
