Credit Card BIN Numbers Database

Read my research and choose your optimal


First of all, welcome to my site and warm greetings to you! My name is Daniel Moreno and I'm in charge of credit card payment processing in a large US based online shop. If you came to this site you are very well aware of the difficulties like getting the credit card issuing country, knowing how to distinct between credit and debit cards, consumer and commercial, reloadable and non-reloadable, filtering out prepaid and gift cards. These tasks can be hardly accomplished without having a well structured, up to date BIN numbers database, or a BIN list.


Visa and MasterCard have started the BIN split process. That means that a traditional 6-digit BIN database is no longer enough. Before proceeding any further, refer to the documents from Visa and MasterCard:

Visa: Preparing for the Eight-Digit BIN (FAQ, PDF)
MasterCard: 8-Digit BIN Expansion Mandate and PCI DSS Impact (PDF)

I have dealt with a number of vendors and here are some of them. Almost all of them keep low profile. If you want to have their corporate data and client references, ask them. At least BinBase and FraudAssets sent me all I wanted to know, and even the registration documents. Not all providers are included; if I had exceptionally terrible experience I just got a refund and moved on.
