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.
Any technical questions, please post here, we'll be glad to assist you 🙂
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?

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?
