BIN Information

The BIN is a Bank Identification Number. This is the first 6 to 10 digits in a card that can be used to recall information about the card, including the card brand, the issuing bank, if the card is a corporate purchasing card and whether the card is issued for Credit or Debit.

Use Cases

There are many scenarios when keying a card would be used, here are a few examples:

  • Determining if a BIN belongs to a credit or debit card.
  • Determining if a card is a corporate card.
  • Determining card brand.

This API uses the first 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 digits from the search parameter and will result in the longest matching BIN.

Authentication

Unlike the endpoints in Checkout API, the Bin API uses a JSON Web Token as a Bearer Token to authenticate.
