Detect and Identify Prepaid Cards

Checking prepaid cards can help businesses to decrease fraud. BinDB can currently identify over 12,000 different prepaid, virtual and gift cards.

Making it impossible to check the credit history of the buyer, prepaid and gift card related fraud generates millions of dollars of losses every year. Another danger is when people sign in for recurring services.

A common scenario includes a person signing up for a service after preloading the initial balance needed for sign-up, however once the service is consumed for the initial period, the prepaid card does not contain enough balance for re-billing.

Prepaid cards can be separated in two main classes: relodable and non-reloadable. Where non-reloadable prepaid cards can be, gift cards, disposable or virtual cards, cobranded cards and cards issued under bin sponsorship. The key difference between them is that reloadable cards as the name suggests allow being funded regularly and reused where non-reloadable cards are mostly disposable one time use cards.
