Address Verification Service (AVS)
A service that reduces credit card fraud by verifying the cardholder's address information when the physical card isn't available to swipe through an MSR device (e.g., as with telephone orders). AVS processing doesn't affect whether the charge is approved. Instead, AVS indicates whether or not the address provided by the customer matches the address on file with the credit card company so that the merchant can decide whether or not to process the charge.

The industry typically divides up cards by the business of the issuer.
So there are bank cards (VISA, Master Card, Discover), Petroleum Cards
(SUN Oil, Exxon, etc.), and Travel and Entertainment (T&E) cards
(American Express, Diners' Club, Carte Blanche). Other cards are
typically lumped together as "Private Label" cards. That would include
department store cards, telephone cards, and the like. Most private
label cards are only accepted by the issuer. People are starting to
divide the telephone cards into a separate class, but it hasn't re-
ceived widespread acceptance. (This is just a matter of terminology,
and doesn't affect anything important.)
