New Mastercard BIN Range Mandate

Effective October 14, 2016, Mastercard introduced a new series of card Numbers that begin with a “2”. The new “2” series range will be processed the same as the existing Mastercard(s) starting with a “5”. Support of the new card range is mandatory for all clients.

Great news for clients using Merchant Passport Premium or Dejavoo terminals, you already have the ability to accept the new card range and no action is needed.

Next Steps to Update new Mastercard card range:

POS/Computer Systems

Most POS terminals or web-based applications can be updated to accept the new Mastercard card range by simply updating or downloading new software. Contact your software provider as soon as possible to ensure that your POS or application accepts the new Mastercard card range.
