MasterCard 2-Series Bank Identification Numbers

MasterCard has introduced a new 2-series to their Bank Identification Numbers (BINs). A BIN is the initial six numbers that appear on a credit card and can be used to identify the card issuing institution. Adding this new BIN will not only affect cardholders but everyone using integrated point-of-sale systems and/or stand-alone payment terminals. Merchants must be able to accept and support the new 2-series BIN range in card-present and card-not-present payment acceptance channels.
