It depends on just how much stuff you want to log - the expiry is logged so
that, if you are doing regular repeats, you can see when the card is about
to expire. You may of course log anything else you think useful (note though
that the CV2 number should not be logged under Card Scheme rules).

Their test server only really does a Luhn 10 check, but their live server
takes the response from the bank and passes it on to you, so this one
is definitive.
