Today I am happy to release Quick BIN Lookup, simple one-use website that lets you easily find some basic information about any credit or debit card. This is primarily useful to merchants who need to look up where a payment is coming from.

As the name implies, this site is aimed at getting you the BIN/IIN information you want quickly and easily. There are no extraneous features or sales pitches to get you to upgrade to another product like you'll see on some similar sites. The site is less than 100 lines of HTML, very limited CSS, and the only JavaScript is there to serve my analytics and single Adsense ad. Oh, and of course it has a better mobile interface than any of its peers.

The backend of the site is built in PHP and uses the Binlist API to access the BIN data data. As with the site design, this code is optimized to accomplish the most with as little code as possible.

Save Quick BIN Lookup for later and I hope you find it useful when you actually need it. You'll be happy to have it.
