Address Verification Service Setup
To reduce fraud, you may require additional address information from consumers. You must first configure your AVS settings within Authorize.Net. For help with this, watch their video titled "Address Verification Service (AVS)".
After Authorize.Net AVS is configured, you can choose the address fields you want to be required from the Order Payment screen within Open Dining.
Also note the settings you establish on Open Dining must match your requirements on your Authorize.net account, otherwise customers will get an error message when trying to pay by credit card.
