I'd like to hear others thoughts on what the "Standard" labeling is for having users submit the number on the back of their credit cards. I have seen some sites show an image of the back of a card but I'm more wondering about the verbiage. Do you feel there is a standard out there now for what to use or what others are leaning towards as s standard.

"Security Code", "CVV", "CVV2", "CVC"?

There isn't a single standard, because the codes have different labels depending on which company they are from and what field in the database they correspond to. Also sometimes the number is on the front of the card.
That said, I'll always lobby in favor of the one that's not an acronym.
