Credit card name validation

I am trying to validate the name field when payments are being made by credit card.  Anyone know what the REGEX string should be for this?

Or, what are the acceptable characters:

I think apostrophe, hypen.  Not sure about period.  Anything else I should expect to see on card names?

 

 

TIA,

MikeyB

Hi @MikeyB,

 

VCO allows the following format. For more details, refer to Visa Checkout Integration Guide here - https://developer.visa.com/images2/products/visa_checkout/VisaCheckoutMerchantDocs.zip

Re: Credit card name validation

Hi @MikeyB,

 

Also, when using the Visa Checkout API:

 

DR. JOE O'HARA-SMITH would be acceptable as a name, with no diacritics. For example, the name JOSÉ GONZÁLEZ would be written on a credit card as JOSE GONZALEZ, with no diacritics.

Hi,

 

We are handling OFFLINE payments in this project.  VCO doesn't work in this case.

(Both links are dead)

Hi MikeyB,

 

To follow up, with the CyberSource Payments API you can run tests offline. To further explain, you can run test transactions, like if you have an evaluation account with CyberSource then you can use test credit cards to see how the system works even while you are offline.

 

In addition to that, CyberSource also offers an Offline Batch Upload process and an Offline Transaction File Submission.

 

For more information, please call CyberSource Support at CyberSource 800-709-7779.
