Address verification is a precautionary measure we take to ensure your credit card security and prevent fraud. Phone and online shopping does not allow us to request traditional forms of identification, e.g. a driver's license, like a standard walk-in retail outlet. Instead we conduct address verification through your credit/debit card issuer to confirm your identity and verify the validity of your purchase, thereby ultimately protecting your credit.
To avoid shipping delay, it is strongly recommended to use the billing address for shipping.
