Authorize.Net allows merchants to specify the Transaction Version, which 
determines which transaction data may be processed. The only difference 
between Transaction Versions 3.0 and 3.1 is that Version 3.1 includes the 
option for Card Code Verification, while Version 3.0 does not.

There are two ways to set the Transaction Version--from inside your 
account's Settings, and via your credit card processing software.

To update the transaction version in your Merchant Interface, please follow 
these steps:

1. Log into your Merchant Interface at https://account.authorize.net

2. Click Settings in the main left side menu.

3. Click Transaction Version.

4. Click the Submit button.

This will update the account to use Transaction Version 3.1.

To ensure that transactions processed through your software will include the 
Card Code Verification option, make sure your transaction requests include 
the field x_version and is set to "3.1". Please consult your developer or 
shopping cart provider for details on how to ensure this field is sent with 
each transaction. For more information on Transaction version 3.1 or Card 
Code Verification, visit our online video tutorials at
