How Parrot Works

The Parrot API is simple: You make a BIN/IIN request and Parrot returns information about the associated payment card, including details on the bank that issued the card and the market it’s in (e.g. currency, time-zone).

It’s as easy as:

curl -H "curl -H "x-api-key:[your API key here]" ""

Check out our API Reference documentation for more information.
