Maybe this is the case why I have concerns about them: Since they sell their software as donationware, I think that opening the BIN database of their system doesn't affect the donations made to them negatively (I even would pay for this database, so they miss a chance to earn money :-)
But there must be a source where they got these data...
Not sure whether you managed to get hold of this data or not but spotted this thread whilst browsing and thought I would mention....
Merchant service providers supply BIN number range tables for all cards other than AMEX, Diners, JCB and Discover.
Ask your merchant services provider and so long as they are a reputable company and you are a person of good standing they will provide you with the tables and monthly updates.
Not worth messing with 'mars soft' or 'dnssoft' tools as they seem to contain old as well as current BIN numbers but do not tell you which are which. The file from your merchant services provider will give you only active bins.
If you just need a tool to look up active BIN's you will find one at cardfraudhelp.com
Hmm, it seems that my post got deleted. Probably because I was annoyed at having to spend 10 minutes to help people.
Anyway, since this is the first search result for "Bank Identification Number in PHP" on Google, and I managed to find a list, I thought it would be a good idea to post a link to it here (I don't have 5 posts, so you'll have to copy/paste the URL): dumpss.biz/binlist.html
It took me quite awhile to find a free list, so hopefully that'll help somebody.
The question is how up-to-date that list must be. Does Mars database suit you? If answer is yes, I already published this list. It is free now If you need latest list, be patient I am working on it. And I think that the list will be free hereinafter.
mako boy, If you interested in that database, you will find it on my website www uzinter com (I cannot insert any href links in my posts yet)
That web site without face page yet but it contains menu and some databases simalar Mars'
Hey Andrew thanks for the4 response, once agasin can you e-mail me with a link to that database again ,I went to your uzinter site but could not acess or view .i had no pathor reference Thank you once again
Andrew - Can I get the db in a csv for other format
Thanks for parsing the Mars database. I went to you site and you have provided a nice tool. Is there a way I could get the raw data to make it easier to integrate into my application versus having to write an app to go through your site and cultivate all of the records.
