What is BIN & IIN Lookup?
BIN (Bank Identification Number) - the first six numbers that appear on the credit card. The bank identification number specifically identifies the card issuer, the type and category of the card.
If you have a BIN, you know:
Regulation of financial institutions;
The type of card (credit or debit);
Type of card (Electron, Classic, Gold, Maestro, Standard, Platinum, etc.);
Providing the country.
Typically, the bank card number consists of 13 to 19 digits. You can normally see 16 digits on your card. Each number is not just a random number. The first digit always identifies the payment system of your card. For example:
4 - VISA
5 - Mastercard
3 - American Express
The issuing bank then monitors the card type (credit or debit) and the status of the card (Classic, Gold, Platinum).
