In January 2017, MasterCard started issuing cards with a new series of bank identification numbers (BINs). The new 2-series BINs will range from 222100 to 272099 and work the same way as MasterCard’s 5-series BIN

As of February 20th 2017, our systems are now ready to process new 2-series transactions. But, the 2- Series cards are not expected to be issued domestically until June 30th 2017.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU’RE NOT READY

MasterCard requires all merchants to be ready by June 30th 2017.

If your online facilities and 3rd party providers aren’t ready, you won’t be able to receive payments from MasterCard 2-Series BIN cards. This will result in a loss of income and revenue for you.

CHECKING THAT YOU’RE READY

You can check all your online payment facilities, shopping carts, 3rd party providers and anywhere a MasterCard number is accepted using these card details:

Name: John Citizen

Account Number: 2226 3501 3893 8173

Exp: 01/2020

CVC2: 628

If these details are accepted on all of your online payment facilities, shopping carts or 3rd party providers, you’re ready to receive MasterCard 2Series BINs payments.

If you receive an invalid card number response, you are not ready to accept MasterCard 2Series BINs payments.
