Do I need to send billing address and cvv number for AIM payment processing?

Hi All,

 

After seaching and googling and trying to contact support finally i decided to put my question here.

 

I'm currently working to integrate payment for my client's online store with Authorize.net AIM. I have succeeded with test account easily. I'm using PHP SDK for this and sent card num, amount, and exp date using the library. My question (and my client's also) is: Do I need to send cardholders's name, billing address, and exp date through the sdk to that I can verify the card information is corrent and eventually prevent fraud in my system? Because I can't find any info about this (since the PHP documentation is very minimum).

 

Thanks for your help :)

The only required fields are

If you do send billing info, it will help the bank minimize the risk of fraud.
