Definition of BIN Sponsor: how it works and benefits

Discover the definition of a BIN Sponsor

Let’s start by defining the BIN :

The BIN, or bank identification number, corresponds to the first six to eight digits of the long sequence of numbers on the front of a payment card, forming the primary account number (PAN).

But what is a BIN Sponsor?

Also known as a bank identification number sponsor, a BIN Sponsor plays a crucial role in the smooth operation of payment card systems. It represents a financial institution that has the necessary infrastructure and authorisations to enable companies without direct access to card networks to accept payments. In short, it acts as a link between FinTech companies and the global payment network.

The responsibilities of this partner are as follows:

BIN issuance: Issue payment cards with a unique BIN to merchants and financial institutions.
Compliance: Ensure payment card compliance with regulations and industry standards.
Payment processing: Offer services such as transaction processing, fraud detection and prevention, and refund management.
Co-branding: Having the ability to issue payment cards under its own brand or as part of a co-branding partnership with other organisations.
