I want to know one thing - if I am doing CIM do i need to do an AIM first for credit card/CVV verification?
Or can i do CIM only for all transactions?

For CIM, the hosted option will always verification(fee) the CC for CreateCustomerPaymentProfile.
And for the XML or web service version, set the validationMode on CreateCustomerPaymentProfile to
From the documentation
testMode —performs field validation only. During field validation, all fields are checked. However, fields with unrestricted field definitions (such as telephone number) do not generate errors. If you select testMode , a $1.00 test transaction is submitted to verify that the credit card number is in a valid format using the Luhn MOD 10 algorithm. This test transaction does not appear on the customer's credit card statement, but it will generate a transaction receipt e -mail to the merchant. liveMode —generates a transaction to the processor in the amount of $0.01 or $0.00. If successful, the transaction is immediately voided. Visa authorization transactions are being switched from $0.01 to $0.00 for all pro cessors. All other credit card types use $0.01. We recommend you consult your Merchant Account Provider before switching to Zero Dollar Authorizations for Visa, because you may be subject to fees . For Visa transactions using $0.00, the billTo address and billTo zip fields are required. none —When this value is submitted, no additional validation is performed.
