Accepting Loyalty and Bonus Cards
In addition to processing transactions with payment cards such as Visa and Mastercard, we also make it easy for you to read the card number (PAN) from magstripe-based Loyalty or Bonus Cards. Contact your account manager to determine if this feature will work with your specific loyalty or bonus card scheme.
In order to ensure the highest security standards, understand that you never will be able to read the PAN of a payment card. Instead, the BIN (i.e. the first six digits) of your loyalty or bonus card scheme must specifically be white-listed by us and never overlap with the BINs used by payment cards.
The reading of Loyalty or Bonus Cards is currently only available on the Miura card readers.
