About BIN Number
A bank identification number (BIN) is the initial six numbers that appear on a credit card. The bank identification number uniquely identifies the institution issuing the card. The BIN is key in the process of matching transactions to the issuer of the charge card.
Bank identification numbers are used by other institutions, such as American Express, as well. The term "issuer identification number" (IIN) is used interchangeably with BIN. The numbering system helps identify identity theft or potential security breaches by comparing data, such as the address of the institution issuing the card and the address of the cardholder.
The BIN quickly helps a merchant identify which bank the money is being transferred from, the address, and phone number of the bank, if the issuing bank is in the same country as the device used to make the transaction. The BIN verifies the address information provided by the customer.
