Is Recurly ready for for 8-digit Bank Identification Numbers (BINs) ?

Soon-to-be credit cardholders are facing an expected shortage of available BINs. To remedy this, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is calling for a BIN expansion from six to eight digits, so the payments industry should make updates now to be able to process the longer BINs. Visa and Mastercard have committed to 8-digit BINs by April 2022. Learn more on Deloitte.

Luckily for Recurly users, there’s nothing you need to do to accommodate this change. Recurly’s architecture is already in a place where it can support 8-digit BINs thanks to the continuous improvements and updates to our technology. 

Please contact Recurly Support if you have have additional questions about this mandate specific to your site.
