CardCode - passed in AddCreditCard(), but not stored?

You can pass the card code (CVV) when calling CardCode, but from my understanding, Authorize.net will never store CVV codes (I believe no one should ever store them) - if so, what's the purpose of the code being passed, and why is it accounted for in the customer's payment profile?

Re: CardCode - passed in AddCreditCard(), but not stored?

When you create a payment profile in CIM, there is an option to validate the credit card info before saving, you can pass the CVV to make sure the card is valid.

Can you could also ask your customer CVV code when they order (create transaction) too, if you want to.
