Bank Identification Number in Authorize.Net

We are currently using a third party service to find out some additional information about transactions for fraud prevention, etc.. The company allows us to pass the first 6 digits of the credit card (known as the Bank Identification Number or BIN) and receive information about the bank that issued the credit card (such as name, country and phone number). This has worked really well for us for a number of years and has proven to be very useful when transactions are on that borderline of being deemed fraudulent or acceptable. In hopes of saving some time and money, we would like to see if this information is available anywhere inside of Authorize.Net or even offered as a service. In an ideal world, we would like to be able to integrate it with our SDK integrations, but we are flexible.

Re: Bank Identification Number in Authorize.Net

Credit card data can not be retrieved from the Authorize.net system. You would have to collect the credit card data through your interface, request the data from your third party service, then choose to process the transaction or not process the transaction via Authorize.net AIM.

Re: Bank Identification Number in Authorize.Net

Thanks. That's kind of what I expected, but I wanted to double check with someone that knows the interface better.
