Prepaid BIN ranges

One of the features of my development work is to take offline payments.  There are a few methods to reduce fraud and bad payments, one that I want to implement next is to reject prepaid cards.

Can I be supplied with the BIN ranges for prepaid as they are today?  I have no chance to update this feature for 12 months so a daily subscription is not needed.  There is a certain level of fraud related risk I will have to accept.

 

Many thanks,

Mike

Re: Prepaid BIN ranges

Thank you for the response.  It is offline handling so I need to be able to decline Pre-paid cards before hitting any API. 

 

Does that help?

 

Thanks,

Mike

Hello @MikeyB

 

Based on the short description you provided i am not able to provide you information on which API you can use. Can you please provide a detailed business use case on what do you plan to do with our APIs.

 

Thank you,

Re: Prepaid BIN ranges

Hi Vaibhav,

 

I just need a list of pre-paid card BINs for static use. 

Nothing to do with an API.

Can VISA provide a csv file of these?

 

Thanks,

Mike

Hello @MikeyB,

 

Visa does not provide BINs. Please contact the Issuers who can provide you such information.
