How to identify prepaid debit/credit cards?

Postby aug23 » Thu Oct 27, 2011 4:29 pm

As an online business, is there a way to determine if a card is a prepaid debit card? We have a unique situation where we would like to stop accepting these types of cards.

The first 6 digits of a credit card number (BIN) tells you the issuer of the card (issuing bank, issuing country) as well as card brand and card type.
