MasterCard is adding new primary account BIN ranges 222100-272099 to be processed in the same manner as existing range 510000-559999. Merchants are encouraged to visit www.mastercard.us/2-series for additional information.
All merchant locations should now be able to accept the new MasterCard 2-Series BIN ranges.
June 30, 2017 – MasterCard implemented a compliance process for merchants identified as not being able to support the new 2-Series BIN.
- MasterCard has begun identifying Vantiv merchants that are unable to support the new 2-Series BIN based upon their field testing
- Vantiv is working directly with merchants to address non-compliance
- A ‘cure period’ is being provided to merchants to resolve the acceptance issue
- Merchants must demonstrate the acceptance issue is resolved by successfully processing a 2-Series BIN transaction from the identified acceptance location to avoid non-compliance assessments
