Accurate and timely information guaranteed
A BIN number identifies the card type and sub-type, card issuer, and the length of the card number (PAN) – and with our API, you can securely access all this data instantly.
Armed with accurate reference data, you can make more informed decisions about how payments are authorised and routing, which in turn, can help prevent fraud.
Our API makes connecting to the eftpos scheme simple, and sets you up for straight forward automation.
