The Address Verification Service (AVS) is provided by payment card providers (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa) to help determine whether or not a match or partial match of a donor's address information is achieved.
AVS Results are given as single letter codes. Below are some of the AVS results you may see when Exporting a CSV file on the Transactions page within your Anedot account:
