Can a credit card cvv2 start with a 0?


This is a very simple question that isn't easily found on the internets.

Can a credit card cvv2 number start with a 0?

Example: 082

Common sense says no (since it's an integer and leading zeros don't change the value) but I have a report of an end-user with a 0 as the first digit.

Link to reputable documentation such as Visa or a payment processor please.

Best Solution

Yes, a credit card cvv2 number can include a zero. I do not have any documentation other than the fact that my Visa check card has the number "087". I hope this helps.
