Signature Panel

Signature panel is the panel for cardholders' signatures on the back of all valid payment cards. Payment cards are not valid without signature. The signature panel is one of the card security features that merchants should check to ensure that a card-present transaction is valid. The different major card companies and associations place various data on the signature panel. MasterCard, Visa and Discover for example, place their card security codes in or immediately next to the panel.
