Perform a BIN (Bank Identification Number
) or IIN (Issuer Identification Number) lookup.
This API is ideal for fraud protection systems and payment analysis.
Find out the card type, country and full issuer details for the given BIN number.
Our BIN database is comprehensive and covers all countries, we update it on a weekly basis as new cards are issued.
This API also includes some extra fraud detection measures if a customer IP address is passed in. In this mode the API will also perform IP geolocation and IP blocklist lookups.
You can also download the complete BIN database for use on your own systems using the Download API
