    not done much on it myself but i remember it having something to do with running a mod 10 algorithm over it and ensuring the result is 0.

    Actually searching for "mod 10 credit card validation" on google turns up a fair few results.

    Use you can use the Luhn algorithm to validate the format of a credit card number, but you'll need a merchant account with your bank or a c/c machine to actually process the number.... either that, or go through a 3rd party like www.regnow.com

    A luhn check example:

    To protect you from fraud you can check the credit card user's IP and it's credit card number, so you'll see where the IP is from and where the credit card was issued.

    Check this service out if you have fraud problems:

    Re: validate credit card

    If doubling any of the numbers produces a sum greater than nine, subtract nine from the sum to get a single digit. Take the sum of all the digits, and if that sum is divisible by ten, then the card's number is valid.

    This thread was last posted to back in 2004, but that's still an interesting variation on 'casting out nines', which doesn't see the light of day much anymore.
