AVS and verification

These questions pertain the the .NET API:

 

1. Does the AVS check happen on the customer fields (address/zip) or the shipping fields (address/zip)?

 

2. Is the customer address considered to be the billing address?

 

3. Doesn't the billing addres have to be the same as the shipping address? I was under the impression from shopping on some sites that this needs to be true to prevent fraud.

 

4. For business credit cards with no First/Last name, should the company name go in the Request.Company field and the cutomer First/Last name be left blank? Will this pass the validation or does name validation only occur on the customer fields?
