Check if a card is valid without a charge

You can verify the card details, as well as see the results of the CVC and zip code checks, by saving the customer’s card in Stripe.

Additional Information

  • The card information is verified when the card is saved, but it only verifies that the information is valid: it cannot check credit limits or account balances to guarantee that a card will have sufficient funds when you do decide to charge it.

  • The card can still be declined or fail for other reasons.
