What is BIN?

BIN stands for a Bank Identification Number, and it is the first four to a six-digit number that you can find on any credit/debit card. It is used for identifying the institution issuing the card.

Basically, it is the key to matching the issuer of the credit card to the transaction. You can find such numbers in gift cards, credit cards, prepaid cards, electronic benefit cards, and debit cards.

If you see a set of numbers on the front of any bank card, you will find the BIN number. The number is very important if we look from the security aspect and helps identify the potential security breached by comparing the data.

Uses of BIN Generator

BIN Generator will provide the merchants with other information apart from the card issuer. If you are a cardholder and enter the card details for the online transaction, you will be able to get a lot of information.

From the BIN, you will be able to get the name, the address, the phone number of the bank funds from where the funds are transferred from, the card brand, be it Visa card, Mastercard, Amex card, etc.

You will be able to know the type of card it is. It can be a debit card, prepaid card, credit card, gift card, etc. You will also be able to know the level of the card from the case. If it is black, business, or platinum, you will get to know. (Alternatively, we recommend using the Credit Card Generator to generate customized valid credit card details for data testing and verification purposes.)

Details like issuer are in the same country as the device from which the transaction is made or not, and the card holder's address will also be found from the BIN. All such important information can be known by using this BIN Generator tool.
