The alternative to banking

BIN

Bank Identification Number. The first six digits of a PAN that identifies which bank is the issuing bank. The BIN number also needs to be ‘set up’ by the scheme in conjunction with the processor for issuing of cards. BIN numbers are specific both for the bank and the type of card e.g. Prepaid, Credit, Debit.
