I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..
Well, it would be a major no no to be sending that number anywhere, especially via email. Why would you want to do this?.
The whole idea of the CVV number is security, it's an effort to ensure that the person using the card has it in their physical possession. You're forbidden to even store the number...
The point of the CC module is to enable me to get the credit card information from the user and use on my machine..
So when users enter the information, all I get is the name, expiry, and the number..
THe problem is that my machine requires me to enter the CVV number for verification (as many modern machines do)..
So if I do not have that number I can not process the transaction. It also looks very stupid when I contact the customers to give it to me (very unprofessional)..
That's a whole different thing. You said you wanted to email the number to the customers..
There's a module which captures the CVV for the generic cc.php payment module.
Note that the author mentions this.
*** Use only if your Bank allows you to temporarily store the CVV number***.
So, to be compliant with the rules you should delete ALL references to the CVV after you're finished with the transaction..
If someone should hack your db, get the CC no. AND the CVV you have been very negligent..

How would I go about adding a new field (Credit card checknumber) to the credit card module (cc.php). which will also be sent via email with the purchase..
Yes.. That is exactly what I meant....
In 2checkout module it was spelt as credit card checknumber...
