Authentication?

When you swipe your credit card at a store, the machine reads a few things from your credit cards to make sure you have the money to purchase the merchandise. They do this by checking the following on your credit card.

 

-Valid Card Number

-Merchant ID

-Expiration Date

-Card Usage

-Credit-card limit

 

These can all be stored on the magstripe of a credit card.
