Mastercard Introducing new 2-series BIN numbers

MasterCard has introduced a new 2-series to their Bank Identification Numbers (BINs). The BIN is the first 6 digits of a credit card number  and identifies the card’s issuing institution. Up until now, MasterCard BINs have only been in the 5-series range.

 

MasterCard began issuing the 2-series BINs in 2017. The range is from 222100 to 272099. The new BIN range is subject to the same rules as the existing MasterCard 5-series BIN range. The deadline for compliance is June 15, 2017 to avoid potential fines.

Hi

 

I am using paypal pro on my website. Do I need to do anything? How do I go about enabling the new series 2 MasterCard BIN ranges?

You do not need to do anything, so long as your website doesnt check BIN numbers before sending them to PayPal.

Hi,

Are there any test credit card numbers for sandbox that we can use to validate if payment are working with Mastercard new -series BIN numbers.

Also would there be anything we need to do on the website which use PayPal Payment Pro.

Re: Mastercard Introducing new 2-series BIN numbers

When testing with the new 2-series bin, I am getting a validation error that says, 'Credit card number is invalid for the credit card type.' I updated the SDK to version 1.14 (per papal tech support). I read a previous reply on this thread stating that we shouldn't need to change anything in our code order for this to work with the MC numbers. Any suggestions?
