What is BIN Management?
BIN Management will allow you to block certain BIN numbers from your Campaign.
How to block a BIN number from a campaign:
To add a BIN number to be blocked from the campaign, go to Payments>BIN Management and click on the ‘Actions’ drop-down menu and click ‘create’. You will then enter the BIN range that you would like to block. The BIN usually consists of the first 6 of the customer’s credit card.
*Note*- The BIN must be added to the User Defined section first, and then you will be able to add it to the profile.
This is where you can create a profile for the BINs you have added to the Platform. The BIN profile is what you will add to your corresponding campaign(s). You can have multiple BINs per profile and multiple profiles per campaign.
When creating or editing a BIN profile, you have the option to select whether the BIN is prepaid or not. If you select 'Yes', all of the BINs within that profile will be considered pre-paid bins and will be blocked from the campaign. You also have the option to choose if you would like to block the BIN for initials, rebills, or both. For example, if you have a BIN that to block for initials, but would still like your rebills to go through with that BIN, you would select the Block Type as 'Block Initials"
To add a BIN profile to your campaign, click on ‘BIN Blocking’ on the right-hand options menu. When choosing ‘BIN Blocking’ in your campaign options, a BIN Blocking section will appear at the bottom with all of the active BIN profiles. In that field, you can choose the BIN profile(s) for that campaign.
*Note*- If a customer tries to place an order with a credit card number that has a blocked BIN on the campaign, the order will be declined. In the order details, it will show you that the order declined due to the BIN number being blocked.
