What is a Bank Identification Number (BIN)?

BIN is a numbering convention developed to identify which particular institution issued a given creditor bank card, with each card-issuing bank having a unique BIN.

The BIN lookup is a useful fraud prevention tool that can reveal:

  • Is the BIN valid?
  • The name of the cardholder’s bank
  • The card type, e.g. credit, debit, pre paid charge card
  • The card brand, e.g. Mastercard, Visa, Discovery, American Express
  • The card category.  The most common are classic, business, corporate, platinum and pre-paid
  • The issuing bank country.
  • The bank website and phone number details.
