BIN ranges and data for other card networks

I'm testing Visa BIN Attribute Sharing Service in Sandbox. Looking at the documentation, I see "Product ID" and "Brand Indicator" includes other card networks ( e.g. Mastercard, Amex etc..). Also, the data returned in sandbox for BIN FileTransfer API included a few records for Mastercard (e.g. 588661 returned in sandbox )

Wondering if data for all card networks are included in VBASS. Can i expect to see the full Mastercard and Amex data in the production data ?

Hi @ram-chidambaram

 

BIN data is presented based on the level of access that is selected for VBASS. Product ID (which includes Mastercard, Discover, etc.) is included in Level 2 and 3. For more information about this, please visit the VBASS Getting Started page.

 

For more information on VBASS, If you are a:

  • Merchant/Third Party: Please contact your acquirer to discuss options and visit Visa Developer Center for more information on direct BIN data access via the Visa API
    • Acquirer: Please visit Visa Online and contact your Visa account executive for questions on your specific case

Thanks, 

Illana

Thanks Illana for the reply.

 

My understanding was that the level of access ( Level 1 - Basic vs Level 2 - Advanced vs Level 3 - Complete) only controls the attributes made available in the response. I was under the impression that the number of records returned would be same regardless of the level of access. Is this not the case ? 

 

Does Level 1 filter out other network records, but Level 2/3 return those additional records ? I understand Product ID field is only available in Level 2/3 access.
